As you know, I often raid the $1 bin at Michaels and on the JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Week 1, I showed you how to pull together a quick and inexpensive gift to give to that person who’ll need some Christmas Cards on the run. Well, this is part two, it’s for the person who will need Christmas enclosure cards and gift tag cards on the run. The purchased part makes them quick and easy, the JustRite part makes them personal and homemade.
These little $1 bird cages were intended for Halloween. Originally orange, I gave mine a quick spray paint job. From this one you can see what I started out with. I personalized it with ribbon and rose trim before I started on my cards. The cage makes an excellent gift container, and when they are done with it, it can easily hold candy or perhaps hang on the tree. For the cards I used JustRite Stampers Holiday Cheer and for two of the cards I used From Our House 2" Square Borders.
I made small cards that were 2 5/8" x 2 5/8". This is quick work because there’s only so much space to work with and so you have to keep them simple. I filled this bird cage with 12 small enclosure cards and 12 hand made envelopes.
