Tripple Treats for Friends

Do you have 12 friends that you would love to make coordinating projects for with minimal supplies? Are those 12 friends worth $9.95 and a few other on hand cardstock and supplies? With the Stampin' Up! November Paper Special (Buy 3 get 1 Free) you can increase that to 48 friends for only $29.85. Change the colors of the paper and have coordinating gifts for any party from Baby Showers to Birthdays.

My monthly club met the other night. Instead of learning a new stamping technique we learned three quick projects for perfect gift giving. The best part is the supplies were minimal and only used one sheet of Designer Series Paper for all three projects. All of the directions for each can be found on SCS. The direct links are at the bottom of this post.

The images on the Criss Cross Card are from the "In The Spotlight" Hostess Level 2 Stamp Set. They were both stamped in Always Artichoke ink onto Very Vanilla. They were puched out using the Snow Burst and Scalloped Circle Punches. The snow burst image is held on with a brad through all the layers of the insert. When we were done with all the projects there was enough pattern paper left over to make a couple of the gift tags I showed you yesterday.

Here is a list of supplies needed to make all three projects.
1 sheet of Designer Paper 12x12 (Cut into three parts 2-6x6 and 1-12x6)
1 sheet of solid cardstock-Always Artichoke used here
1/4 sheet of coordinating cardstock-River Rock used here
1/2 sheet Neutral cardstock-Very Vanilla used here
Scrap of coordinating solid cardstock-Purely Pomegranate used for tag on insert
1 1/2" x 12" piece of cardstock for card band (Optional)-Purely Pomegrante used here
