Going Grey Challenges

Hello! Welcome to Tuesday's Going Grey by Scrap-Creations challenge post. This week's challenge was to make a Christmas Gift or Gift Holder.

I made several of these, what I'm calling, note holders for gifts this year. The flowered patterned paper portion of the note holder is metal under the paper and then the flower square has a magnet on the back so that a note can be held to the base. It sits up by a little dowel into a hole in the back. I should have taken a photo of this with a note on it...sorry about that!

I first painted the bottom portion of the holder with white acrylic paint then used Paper Trey Ink patterned paper to decorate it with. The flower is made with a Stampin' Up! die put through my Big Shot. The center has a flower base with a Websters Pages Sparkler in the very center.

I actually made five different note holders which I'll share with you throughout the next couple of weeks. All have different colors and themes. They were quite fun to make!

So...you must go check out what my design team sisters have made...they are wonderful, as usual! I'll link you up to their blogs individually below.
