We are a special group of Demonstrators from around the world that join together once a month to create a tutorial for you and then blog with a different project once a month.  We also gather together once a quarter to host a Mega Stamp Camp! Our next one is in February .   It is a very talented bunch.  Meet them here.

This month, we are doing the tutorial and this blog Hop featuring Christmas or Gift packaging.  This is always one of my favourite ones to do.  I decided to use these cards in a box for the Christmas Table.  It not only will mark the Pace settings but will also replace the Christmas Crackers.  Here is my project.  The supplies will be listed below.
