St. Nicholas Gift Box, Shaker Card & Ornament

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts: St. Nicholas Gift Box, Shaker Card & Ornament

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for another Snapguide tutorial for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  This time I’m sharing a great way to usethe new Double Sided Ornament from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  I love to make cards that are a gift all by themselves.  Today I’ll share a Snapguide with you showing you how to create this lovely  boxed gift set.

Here is the box.  I used a blank kraft card box that I had in my stash and decorated it
with Saint Nicholas papers, Petaloo flowers and gorgeous GSL snowflakes. 


 This pretty card is inside the box…..


….along with a little keepsake ornament.  Instead of making a double sided ornament, I used one half on my card front as a shaker element.  It’s twice the fun!

Here’s a closer look at some of the details.

Distress Grit paste makes wonderful “snow” especially when you sprinkle it with glitter!





And here’s a Snapguide Tutorial that so you can see all the steps that went into making this ensemble.

Check out How to Make St. Nicholas Card & Matching Ornament for GSL by Kathy Clement on Snapguide.

I think this would make a great holiday hostess gift, a wonderful teacher appreciation gift, or Secret Santa gift.  You could also display the set on your holiday mantel or side table.  I hope you’ll give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

    ………… That was me being speechless-lol. Oh my goodness, Kathy. The festive sweetness of your project is over-the-top! I’m a watcher and feeder of birds. Those adorable little songbirds have stolen my heart straight away. You have a font of creativity that’s like a mountain spring. It goes so deep as to provide an endless supply. Thank you for inspiring me once again!

    Good morning from Victoria, BC! Love this one as I am very fond of the little swallows. That piece with the two on the branch was that a purchased piece or do you have a die? Would love to have the die if you can still get it. I haven’t used my Big Shot much but would love to get into that more. Great project Kathy and yes that would make a lovely gift for someone very special. You rock.

    Beautiful! Every project you create is outstanding!
    Just wanted to tell you that I did buy the little cutter from Etsy. I have been using it and love it!
    Thanks again for your help in locating it.
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving ! You are one of the many people I am thankful for!
