'Tis the season...

for wrapping things up! By that I mean, school activities, graduations, etc. My post today includes some of those end of year events BUT the project can be used year round...just change the theme of the card and you are good to go!

So, just what am I talking about? How about something easy that we all need...sometimes in a pinch, sometimes not (we just wait until we are in a pinch to actually do it!)....GIFT CARD HOLDERS!

Here is an easy way to make a gift card holder without breaking any time limits...

I'll show you some inspiration first...

Thanks to the coach...who always had an iced coffee in her hand...




(I couldn't find my sample gift cards - lol)
These new release images - coffee trio (K747) and espresso-ly wonderful sentiment (F754) and thank you greeting (H789) really came in handy, just in the nick of time!!!

Congrats to the grads...







This one was so easy thanks to this 2009 image (F739)! The hardest part of this one was getting up to heat emboss the images!! LOL The inside sentiment (E729)is a newer release as well.

These holders are really simple to make. Just take and 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock, cut in half at 4.24in. Score at 1.5 and 6.5, fold and decorate. Flap can be adhered with ribbon, brads, two-sided tape or any combination of these items, even staples!

Thanks for checking in. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another DT challenge...get ready for some sparkle!!!

See you soon...
