Present Gift Card

  What a great weekend I had!!!  On Saturday my sister Tina and I taught two classes at the One of a Kind Stamping & Scrapbook Expo in Madison, WI.  In the morning we made a beautiful Stippled Blossom Gift Card Box with six coordinating cards inside.  Then in the afternoon we made a wonderful Sparkly Snowflake Frame picture.  I will post pictures of those two projects later this week.  Then Saturday night we taught a "round robin" class to 80 wonderful stampers.  The 80 people rotated the room in groups of 10 — so I taught this class 8 times in 4 hours.  The evening went by so quickly.

Here is the project that we did Saturday night.
Birthday Present Gift Card
This cute Present Card pops open to hold a gift card inside.  So not only are you giving a wonderful gift but the recipient feels like they really are getting a gift and they get to open up more than a plain envelope.
