The Twelve Days of Christmas - in a gift book!


Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye!  I have designed a 12 days of Christmas book for a Workshop and I would like to share it with you today.
This little book takes some time to make because it has a lot of cuts from the Cricut machine as well as by hand.  I used Close To My Heart papers and the Cricut cartridges made especially for them.  This makes it even more special because a lot of loving care went into making it.

Pictured above is the book outside of the special box it is stored in.  You can stand it up as you turn the pages, as shown.  Each page has a pocket that can hold a gift card or special memento for that day.  The recipient will get a little surprise for each day as shown below.  Counting.....12, 11.....

10, 9.......

8, 7.....the 7th day actually has a detachable Christmas card!

6, 5.......
Day four has a little package that opens up... then 3...

two, one!

Merry Christmas!  Day 12 and December 25th!
Wouldn't it be fun to include a gift card from several of
your recipient's favorite stores or coffee shops?  Little
promissory notes or sentiments can be tucked in too!

Here's wishing you a wonderful Christmas season!  I will be giving this
book to someone special.  I hope you got some inspiration today and for lots more, make sure to hop forward or back on the blue button at the top of the page and see the ideas from other designers.  Have a great day!
Happy Holiday Crafting!
