So I am going to share this project with you!


Well since we are 2 days post Christmas I thought it may be too late to share this project with you, but then I thought again…winter is a LONG season and this style of gift can be given, and accepted, all winter long!

I used the Pretty Packaging © template Cutesy Cover © AND Hanging Holiday Sled © together for this one. The sled make s a FABULOUS addition on a gift.

I often find MASCULINE gifts a bit more difficult but I think this one is pretty impressive for any gender!


I ENLARGED Cutesy Cover by 2 1/2 inches! I then SHRUNK the sleigh to about 2 inches!

So my box completed is about 4 1/8, almost 1 1/2 deep and 5 1/8 inches tall. Perfect for some handmade cards, tags, cocoa, warm socks, or many other great gifts.

I cut my Cutesy Cover © template from a fabulous textured cardstock from Couture Cardstock called Brown Paper Packages

The Sleigh is cut from Pumpernickle, then distressed.


I then just tied it to my ribbon, which can easily slip on/off.

I adorned the ribbon with wired silver cording, mini snowflake ornaments and silver bells (for sleigh bells! LOL!)

I love how this turned out! Don’t you love the template combination and the fact they can cont only be CUT out with your cutting machine, but RE-SIZED to fit you project needs with the click of a button!!

This went together really quick!

This is a PURE dream for me. I have long wanted all my gift packaging in files like this, so to be able to offer them to the world in this format makes me over the moon. I’m happy so many of you are as excited as I am. I have gotten so much fabulous feedback, so thank you!

 I certainly enjoyed the break from work to spend the Holiday with my family. We had a fabulous Christmas. It was nice putting everything aside to just enjoy a couple days with the kids, and nothing else. I really cherish these years, as they pass to quickly. I’ll have to share some photos at some point, but now the workload is piled high as I left it to sit for a few days.

Then we have the first official My Time Made Easy™ LLC  release is the 3rd! I can hardly contain myself 😀

 Much to do before then!!

I hope you had a happy holiday, and come back tomorrow to see some samples using In a Pinch ©

Till then
