Busy, busy, busy….
Yep! You and me both. I had three classes this week but I did get my Christmas cards addressed! Now to remember to put them in the mail! 🙂
On Sunday we had our team Holiday Party. Make-n-Takes, food and a gift exchange. It’s always fun to see the gifts, especially the homemade ones. I like to try to come up with something wonderful but this year time and imagination weren’t on my side. I bought the ever-popular Starbucks Gift Card. Since my gift was so lame I had to come up with a cute idea for the packaging. I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die. I will admit that I CASEd the design but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
Instead of folding and adhering all the sides to make an actual envelope I left one side open then slipped the gift card in with a ribbon wrapped around it to make it easier to pull out. Clever idea. I wish I knew who to give the credit to. Hmmm…..
Of course I couldn’t just give the gift card as is. I needed to wrap it so I came up with this simple and fun idea using the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags. Love those things! To jazz it up I added a banner, a label and the GORGEOUS new White Jute Ribbon that will be in the new Occasions Catalog in January. This ribbon is beautiful and I know you’ll love it as much as I do!
Now, it’s time to get ready to hit the mall. YIKES! I hate to do it at this late date but when you’re behind in your shopping…….
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
