The Stamping Diversity Team aims to share our paper creations and educate you about different cultures and traditions. For our first hop, we chose to focus on Hanukkah and its eight gifts. I did some research online and learned that giving gifts for Hanukkah is a relatively new practice. Some sources say it started as a way to make Jewish children feel less left out during Christmas, while others say it was a way to spread joy and happiness.
In the past, Jewish children received gelt, which is money or chocolate coins, to give to their teachers or to charity. The idea was to teach them the value of money and the importance of doing good deeds. Nowadays, parents use these gifts as a way to celebrate and have fun.
I made four small gift holders that can hold various items, such as money, gift cards, or candy. I hope these inspire you to create your own gift presentations.
