You're the crafty one in your family. That means your gifts, your tree, your packaging are expected to be a little special. Use these templates, and you'll be getting oohs and aahs with a minimum amount of effort.
If you've bought gift cards, be sure to check out the Scrapbookgraphics blog, Studio Matters, for a free template to make these beautiful gift card holders. Designed by my buddy, Karen Maggie, they're easy-to-do, and oh so elegant.
Mirkwood Designs offers dozens of templates for everything from envelopes to boxes to wine glass shades. There's even a template for an old-fashioned fan. Wouldn't this look great on a package wrapped in Victorian papers?
