Weekly Wrap #47 : Gifted Magazine

Weekly Wrap

Gifted Magazine

Have you seen the debut issue of Gifted Magazine, created by Ez of Creature Comforts? If you haven’t yet checked out this awesome new e-magazine, which made its debut this week, then I’d advise you to head on over and do so because you’re in for a big, big treat.

The magazine is filled with fantastic gift ideas for everyone on your list, as well as super great craft projects (wreaths, ornaments, plaques, paper snowflake decorations) and printables (gift wrap, tags, cards). One of my favorite features from the issue was the cover story, Gilty Pleasures (p. 113),  by Sally Shim of Shim & Sons. Metallics are a hot holiday trend this year, and Sally shows you several ways to add some golden sparkle and shine to your holiday gift packaging.

Also, be sure to check out the super cool gift wrap guide (p. 209), where you’ll find tons of gift wrap and embellishment product suggestions. Lots of great ideas to be found!

From the Shop Friday : Martha Stewart Holiday Paper Punches

Martha Stewart Crafts put out some great Halloween paper punches this year, and the new Christmas paper punches in her line are pretty great, too. Two of my favorite holiday themes are snowflakes and snowmen, so my favorites are all of the ornate, detailed snowflakes punches that have been added this year. Here’s just a taste of what’s available:
