If you did, was it as successful as the traditional holiday colors or not? I am overwhelmed by the pattern paper I have and before I invest the time in making the cocoa packets, and tea/cookie holders with those types of paper, I would like to get the most bang for my $ if you know what I mean.
Absolutely! I have made some gift card holders using the stocking builder punch with leopard print paper, trimmed with black ribbon and some rhinestones, they were a big hit with the "Girly" crowd. I would totally use zebra if I had it! I also like aqua colors or pale pinks with silver and white. I think you could make anything look "holiday".
