It is SOOO fun to create your OWN unique gifts…and Close To My Heart has a PERFECT selection of pre-created, but non-designed gifts ready for you!! 

If you have a current Idea Book, check out page 131…if you do not have an Idea Book CLICK HERE to go to the online Idea book! J

LOOK at the variety of gift ideas!!!  This is our My Creations line of products and I will often venture this way when I need an idea for a handmade gift! J

Mini Banners, Collage Cubes, Display albums, card boxes, recipe boxes…just to name a few! 

I wanted to share some Milk Carton ideas. 
Z1739 Milk cartons

This is a NEW product that CTMH released in February!  The milk cartons come in a pack of TWO.  They have 2 closure clips and are PERFECT for filling with anything your heart desire’s!

I first saw a milk carton created by my upline, Joyce Houck.

I LOVED her creation and she inspired me to get started on my own! LOL!!!
She used the Pemberley paper pack, the Feb SOTM and some of our NEW wooden garden shapes! 

I LOVE the wooden shapes…they are lightweight, inkable, stampable…and just FUN to add to any of your creations!!! 
I had to take a picture of what an entire pack looks like – LOL! 

Take a look…are you as AMAZED as I was… at the amount of variety of shapes that come in this pack?

As you can see, Joyce chose to use one of the flowers…and added a sparkle to the middle for the center.

To finish it off, Joyce covered the metal clip (that is included) with a piece of coordinating Pemberley paper.

So, after I saw Joyce’s – I WANTED to create one! J…so off to my creation table. J

I used the Pemberley pack as well and created one ( I’m in Hawaii as I post …and FORGOT to take a picture of this before leaving – LOL – silly me!)

Then, I thought, hmmm…this would look lovely used in the Florentine paper pack and created this!!!  J

I LOVE the versatility of CTMH’s products!!!  The Florentine paper pack is among my favorite and I thought it gave this box a soft, inviting approach.  Now, to fill that box with your friends favorite candy J… or give it to a teacher that you are so thankful for, or…you decide!  Who would you give this artwork to?

I hope you were inspired and that you will now venture to your creating area to make something yourself!!
