Time for Gift Cards

Hello Everyone! I have been a bit busy these last couple of weeks, but it was all necessary time I needed to donate to charity and support my community.  It also helped me clean out closets with clothes that shrunk (smiles) and shoes that seemed to grow the tallest heels (can't believe I actually walked in some of those shoes).  Afterwards I decided that for all the teenagers in my life I would give gift cards (not to mention that's all they had listed on their wish list) with the difference being the store.

What would be a good way to give a gift card...a handmade gift card holder! So that's what I have been up to...searching Youtube University for the perfect class and I found one that I decided would work for two of my girls and now I'd like to share those with you.  Please note that what I am sharing are my demos so they only have scraps as embellishments.  I'll fancy up the real ones and create a box to put the card in...with decorations and all.  I'm still in the Fall mood so I used colors that I can see on the trees outside my window.  You can't see it but the holder on the left is actually olive and the right is more like a honey brown.  I'd still like to enter these little holders in a challenge although they are demos.

Thanks to Dianna Gobert for her inspiration, tutorial and design.  Now that I have the measurements in inches I can get started on creating ones for giving.  I'll make a few girly ones and then a few rough and tough ones.  I have a few more designs I want to try out so I guess I need to start with cutting paper and creating my demos.

Before I end I'd like to remind you that if you would like a chance of winning both challenge prizes you need to enter your project before the 15th.  Just click the challenge tab above to go there right away.

Thanks to all of you for supporting my blog and participating in my challenges...it makes my heart smile.  And a Texas size Yahoo of Thanks go out to my sponsors for their generosity in donating to my challenges.

If those are 'just your demos' I can't imagine how gorgeous your 'real' projects are going to be. These are lovely and anyone would love to receive a gift card in such a pretty package.

As always, you have rocked your design. I have a hard time believing these are "demos" and not your completed projects :)
