Merry Christmas

Christmas | Forward this Picture

It's Christmas Eve and I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very wonderful and safe holiday season. No matter what you celebrate remember that the gifts, the gatherings, and all the hustle and bustle are not what makes this holiday special. Take a moment to enjoy the people and center on the true reason for the celebration.

Thank you for making this blog experience rewarding. Two years into this and it is still enjoyable. This is a wonderful community of paper crafters and I am so lucky to have been able to meet so many of you all.

I have some exciting things planned for 2012 for the blog and myself and I am looking forward to sharing them with you all. As I sign off for 2011 and headed on a much needed and over due vacation I want to say thank you one last time before the year ends. May you be blessed this holiday season!

Make it a great one

Fun Fold Gift Card Directions.

OK--I know this is late but I have been having a ton of issues posting and it is not making me happy!
So here is a step by step so bookmark this page as you will want to keep this one in your wheel house.
First off cut a pc of paper that is 11" long and 4 1/2" wide
Next score three times starting from the left hand side at 3", 5 1/2", and 8"
See the picture fore measurements.
on the outside of the card I applied red line tape as above.  I would suggest using the thinnest tape you have as you don't want the gift card to get stuck. Peel off the red line and ally the two center sections together.

Next, open the card and trace the gift card shape onto the center section.  Once that is complete you are ready to cut out the traced portion

Once that is complete you can insert your gift card
so you this is what it looks like laying flat, and standing up.
I told you this on was super simple.  I would love to see how you all use this in your gift giving-so please share a link in the comments.
If all goes well there will be another project on Friday!
Make it a great one-
