Julie's December Daily Card Box...

Now that I have finished scrapping for this years December Daily,  I bet you are all wondering just how it will go all together as there are no holes in sight to use rings or ribbons on.

Here is the pile of cards.

Cards not pages you say?  
That's because this year my December Daily is not an album this year.
The reason for all those little numbered tabs at the top of  all my cards is because I decided to make this year's December Daily a card box instead.

Here is what the cards are going to be housed in

Pretty plain looking - but soon solved that issue and started to wrap up my card box.
Every present needs a bow. . .
So that is where I started. A twine bow to help keep my card box closed.

Making it look pretty, started by adding in some ribbon. 

So that I could see just where the ribbon needed to go and the title card could be seen under it, I kept it in place with clip, then some more twine.

Finally  added in some trim.

What is a present without a tag?

And seeing I had to cover up the back of my card box where all the trims met, that was just the place for this present's tag.
 I cut a scrap of kraft to fit. Punched out a heart then finished it of with some doodling and a few word stickers before adding it to my present.

Adding some flowers.
 Flowers are my favorite embellie and using them in last year's album turned it somewhat into the pregnant brick. This year I resisted the urge to use flowers on my cards. I managed to use just one and thought that having a flower spray on the front would finish it nicely. My present already had a bow, so used some washi tape to attach my flower.

Here is the finshed card box with the cards inside.

 Those paper bag envelopes at the back hid the last of Hoot and Holler scrapped antics.


That's my December Daily all wrapped up for another year. I think after doing three this one is my favorite so far.


  1. This is pretty, unique and brilliant!

  2. You've decorated your little December Daily holder beautifully, Julie and it looks fabulous holding all your little cards.


Any thoughts? We'd love to know them, please share.....
