Crafty, Wacky, Happy Holidays....
It's not too late to get into the crafty spirit, so grab your glue gun, and we'll pompom a wreath, turn wash cloths into house shoes, make silly soaps for stocking stuffers, or greet your guests with gilded dishes. That will get you into the spirit!
Just to let you know....I'm taking a little bitty blog vacation for a while so that I can celebrate Christmas with Scott's family. But you can still craft with me! I invite you to join me anytime, night or day at PattieWack.com, at MySpace, on CBS-CH6 in Tulsa, and, on LifetimeTV.com.
Here's GREAT NEWS!
You can watch ALL SIX CRAFTS COUNTDOWN VIDEOS anytime you want. We'll make some whimsical gifts, wacky decorations, impress the most finicky friends and as usual, Have fun with it! I'll be back soon....so keep on crafting!
On Christmas Eve you can catch me on the "Six in The Morning" show with the last one of the segments for the Christmas Crafts Countdown. I'll be making these cute last minute gift boxes, tags and place cards from Christmas cards and photos.

Mini Gift Boxes
Designed by Pattie Donham
Christmas or Greeting Card
Option: Photograph and same size Cardstock
123D Papercrafting System™
Tape or Glue
1. Cut the card in half along the fold line. If you are making a box with a photograph, cut cardstock the exact same size as the photo.
2. For the box top, place the photo or front of the card face down on the (pink) scoring side of the 123D Papercrafting™ System mat. Place the corner of the card or photo in the bottom left corner along the WHITE lines. Lay the slotted ruler over the card and lightly score on the 1-inch mark. Repeat on all 4 sides. (Note: If you want a box that is not 1-inch deep, score along the measurement that you desire, for example 1/2-inch, 2-inches, etc.)
3. For the box bottom, place the other half of the card, or the cardstock in the corner along the BLACK lines. Lay the slotted ruler over the cardstock and lightly score on the 1-inch mark. Repeat on all 4 sides.
4. To cut the corner tabs, lay the Notch-a-box template over the corners and cut out a notch as shown on the template. Repeat on all 4 tabs, on the box top and bottom.
5. Adhere the corner tabs to form the box top and box bottom.
6. Place the box top on the box bottom to complete.
