Elf Paper Punch Art Gift Set

I have a friend at work who loves to plan the perfect for Christmas for her family.  I made her this little gift set to get her started.  I wanted to do something with a little elf motif.  I combined my Cricut and my trusty paper punches, and this is what I came up with:

The contents of her gift set include a card to send and a notepad for her Black Friday shopping.  The stamped sentiment on the card is from Dandelion Designs and on the notepad is from Papertrey Ink, Take Note and Just The Ticket.

To keep the notepad closed, I attached an elf to the back of a clothespin. This way it will also keep any receipts in her notepad so they don't get lost in her purse.

I packaged this little set in a wine bag that I got from Target. They had them under the register, and I sweet talked the cashier into giving me a few! You could probably get them from your local package store (liquor store). I made a tag with another elf that is attached with a glitter clothespin. This way, she can reuse the package and the tag!

Stamps:  Dandelion Designs-Sweet Christmas Wishes, Papertrey Ink-Take Note, Papertrey Ink-Just The Ticket
Paper:  Bazzill, Recollections,
Ink:  Versafine, Colorbox, Martha Stewart
Misc:  Clothespins, buttons, paper punches, Cricut, white gel pen, Nestabilities, pop up dots, baker's twine, jingle bells, ric rak, notepad, ScorTape, My Favorite Things Scallop Dienamic, Papertrey Ink Just The Ticket Die
