December Artist Team Challenge

Welcome to my stop on the  December Artist Team Challenge.
If you arrived here from Lilian's blog you are in the right place.
If you have lost your way you can return to Club Scrap HERE and start from the beginning.

This month's challenge was all about last minute Christmas gifts.
We drew inspiration from Tricia's recent blog post, 10 Gift ideas Made with Paper.
I knew immediately that I wanted to recreate the Reunion Gift Card Box.

I created them from the Watercolor Christmas Collection.
I am so in love with this kit and it's beautiful artwork by artist Swarup Murthy.
After using much of my kit to create a Christmas Pocket Album, I decided to see how far I could get with my leftover pieces.

 The holders came together so quickly and easily and I was just thrilled with how beautiful they were!


I was so excited and decided that instead of filling them with cards, I would construct a mini album to fit inside the pocket!

I used the basic structure of the Memento Holder as my guide to make my mini album. 
I changed the measurements so the album fit the inner pocket and I created the cover from a single piece of paper. 

I created my own piercing guide for the spine too!


There are so many great things about this project.
It is quick to put together.
You can change the look entirely but just using different paper.
You can fill it with cards, a mini album, a small calendar or even a gift card.
The possibilities are endless.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Please leave some love and you will have another chance to win my holiday Club Scrap goody box.
I will be announcing the winner right here on New Year's Eve.

 Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas!

Love the Watercolor Christmas version of the card holder, and so clever of you to create a mini album to fit the pocket instead of cards. Great idea! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
