To create this, I fan folded the sheet & inserted crepe paper in the folds. (make sure you run your adhesive the entire length, or the ones that aren't attached fall out during the cutting part- don't ask me how I know this.)
silver metallic string & hot glued them to a small punched circle.
I added a bit more that I didn't fray, topped with a silver star & a chipboard element from Christmas Emporium Tags 1.5/8" black satin pleats for the hanger, fluff to your liking & you're done!
'Under the Mistletoe' paper. I was wrapping tickets, so I measured the insert & added some room on each side- it ended up 7" wide. I scored at 4" & 8.25". (I hope that makes sense! Overall it is 7"x4.25")
ivory velvet ric-rac & sheer box pleats to the underside of the flap & machine sewed them in place. I then machine sewed around the whole outside. Another chipboard element from A Christmas Emporium Tags 1 is threaded with ivory solid/wrinkle ribbon.
satin/grosgrain double band ribbon machine stitched to hold the gift in place makes an easy & beautiful pull!
