Birthday Bag

Birthday Bag

I mentioned last week that I made a little gift card box for my sister.  I gave her several gift cards and another one went into this bag.  I wish I had taken a picture of the side view so that you could get a better idea of the size but it really is quite small and fits a gift card perfectly!

I used one of our retiring papers called Birthday Basics (#130135).  I love all of the paper in this pack and am sad to see it retiring.  As of right now, it is still available, so if you love it too, be sure to pick it up before it’s gone!

Free shipping continues for three more days!

Today is the last day to enter my drawing!  To enter, just tell me your favorite retiring item!  See my post HERE to add your comment!!  I’ll announce the winner on my blog tomorrow morning!

Gift Card Holder

Isn’t it scary when something is wrong with your computer?  What the heck did we do without them?   I’m happy to say that my computer problems have been solved by the nice man at the Apple store!

Here is the card I made a few days ago but couldn’t post until now.  My inspiration came from Ronda Wade.  I modified it just a bit and turned it into a gift card holder.  Gift Card Holder

I made my card  using paper from the  Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper that you can get free with a $50 order! You can make three holders with just one sheet of paper.  Here are the measurements:

DSP:  4 x 12   Score at 1- 3/4″ & 7- 1/8″  Use sticky strip to seal up the edges

Front flap:   Basic Gray:  4-1/4″ x 2- 3/4″          Whisper White:  4″ x 2- 1/2″

Piece inside for gift card (I adhered the gift card with glue dots):  3-1/4″  x  5-1/8″       I used my  Small Oval Punch to make it easier to get the gift card out.

My sentiment comes from the set Simply Celebrate.  I love the font that is used to write Enjoy.

Gift Holder Tins

 snowflakes tin front Envelope for tin_edited-1  inside of tintin front snowflakeQuick post today as Christmas Day is getting close!! Do you have a gift card and you’re wondering how you can package it in a different way?  Use a plain tin container and emboss it!  I used my Versamark to stamp my snowflakes, sprinkled them with silver embossing powder and heat embossed them!  Be careful, as they do get quite hot!  I added paper to the inside of the tin and made a small envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.  Next, I ran it through my Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.

Thank you for stopping by today!
