Holiday "Anything But A Card" Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop where we are featuring artwork that is "Anything but a card". I'm looking forward to seeing what the other participants have created to share with you and I hope you are too!

If you are coming from Brenda's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants by clicking here.

One of the reasons I joined Close To My Heart over 20 years ago is because of my love for giving people gifts, for various occasions. I learned that I could hand-create goodies for a fraction of a cost of what I would pay for something in the store and that is what got me hooked and still holds true!

I wanted to create some treats for my team members as we gathered together last weekend for a kick-off celebration for the new catalog, which debuts January 1st. I wasn't sure what I wanted to create and came across this pattern for a Ghiradelli holder. I think it came out cute and hope you do as well!

This pattern doesn't require any glue so that was nice. Just some scoring, folding and tucking is all! LOL

I worked to keep the decorations cute and simple by cutting out the circle on Gold Glitter Paper and then adding some White & Gold Skinny Ribbon. I thought all was the perfect topping for a package.

A little tip: My corner rounder didn't allow some of the sides to tuck in nicely, so I used some scissors to trim off a bit more. Should you recreate these and experience the same, hopefully that will help. 

The little box holds two Ghiradelli squares; a perfect treat, in my opinion!

I truly appreciate you stopping by. Let me know if you plan on trying this pattern out for yourself and then head on over to Cat's Blog to see what "Anything but a card" item she has to share with you.

Happy hoppin'!


Thanks for showing me some blog love with your comments!
