Word Play Tote


The seventh gift of Christmas is this quick and easy tote full of all occasion cards. I made the tote festive for the holidays, but I wanted the cards to be all occasion. I chose colors from the holiday paper and used those colors on the cards.


The tote was very easy. It is an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of designer paper scored from each end at 4 1/2 and from each side at 1 3/8. Two snips on each side made little flaps that form the side of the tote. The tote handles are just strips of DSP that are attached with brads and card stock punched pieces using the round tab punch. I trimmed away part of punched piece. This makes the handle sturdier and really dresses up the tote. Paula Holsey sent each of her guests home from her recent workshop with a similar little bag and I designed this one from hers.



This project really went together quickly. The cards are clean and simple designs and were a snap to stamp. Everyone can use all occasion cards so this gift is as great to give as it is to receive!
