How I Made Secret Santa Lists'

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Every year my family has a Secret Santa gift exchange; and, we always pick names out of a hat after our Thanksgiving dinner. It’s always so excited, hehe. So, yesterday I made our lists’ and we passed them around so they could be filled out and ready to go. This year I made them a little bit bigger than a standard A2 4 x 6 size, and created them at a 5 x 7 size instead—that way we have more room to right down all the things we’d like our secret Santa to get for us.
So, what I did to make 2 sheets was take a piece of cream card stock at 8.5” x 11” and cut it in half at 5 ½”—doing this will give you 2 perfect sheets around 5 x 7 inches. Next I took out my Martha Stewart, CookieAlphabet Set, and used it to create the ‘Secret Santa’ sentiment. At first I wasn't expecting this alphabet set to work out that great because I've been majorly disappointed by Martha S. Alphabet sets before. But, to my surprise they actually work very well. I definitely recommend them (if you’re a stamp lover/collector).
 For the smaller text I used my Lawn Fawn, Harold's ABCs stamp set. They have such great stamps!
I also used my boarder stamps for the dotted lines, and you can see my 'mags&snacks' sentiment--because our Secret Santa puts our favorite magazines and snacks in our stockings every week until Christmas! I love that part. Oh gosh, we're so nerdy. 
Lastly I used one of my Christmas stamp sets to add the date, and used my corner chomper to round the edges of the paper! Isn't it so cute? P.S. I know Wednesday is usually my 'Card of the Week' and I'll still post it either today or tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. So so cute! Those cards are cute and I love that your family does secret santa!

  2. These Secret Santa lists are awesome! We usually draw names out of a hat too, but we've always just done it on some scrap paper. This gives me something new to try for our family. ;)
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
