JustRite's HUGE Christmas Blog Hop!

JustRite is having one huge Christmas party today!!! You will get to hop around and see a total of
33 projects from some of the most amazing designers!! : )

My project was inspired by a gum holder my MIL made for my kids awhile back...and I decided they would make a cute project! I used JR's Christmas Joy set and some K & Company Christmas paper.....which I love because it is double sided! I cut the paper to 8 1/2 x2 1/2 inches. Score at 2 1/2 and 5 3/4. Fold where scored. On bottom flap use SU! Word Window punch to create a pocket for the gum. Use velcro on top and bottom flap to secure. Once it is closed, you simply decorate the front the way you would like! I colored this cute penguin with Copics and added some Magic Scrap's iridescent flakes to create "snow." After that, I simply used my Oval Nesties to cut him out! Easy peasy!

Do you remember when Magic Scraps were all the rage? Yep......I still have 'em!
