It has been a few months since I have entered into the Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge, but I really like to each month....It's been a crazy summer!
So, I have to tell you (most of you already know this)...I really like making gifts to give people! I sometimes worry when I give a hand made gift the recipient will feel short changed, so making a gift card holder gives me the best of both worlds. I get to make something for them and they also get a "real" gift.
The Jaded Blossom Challenge this month is Gift Card themed to celebrate their new Gift Card Die.
My first project is my entry into the challenge. I used all Jaded Blossom products to make this card.
I used the Fancy Topper Die to make the base of the card, cut it another time from patterned paper to place on top. I used the Gift Card Die on the interior of the card base and Candy Charms and Banners Dies to create a charm on the cover. I used Birthday Kisses on the charm and of course, the interior sentiment is also Jaded Blossom, but I couldn't find the link in the store. This was a five minute simple card, which is great because often times I am not prepared even though every one's birthday happens each year!
Here's another gift using cash instead of a gift card....sometimes, cash is king!
I have wanted to make this cash box many times....The longest part was taping all the bills
together. I can report that it will hold a least 100 bills!
The following gift card holders were all made with cut files from SVG Cutting Files. I love their products....they just fit perfectly! And, yes...the stamps are all Jaded Blossom!
Coffee set made for my boss' birthday! She is a coffee freak!
Kindle Gift Card holder made for my Brother - in -law...I had the
inside scoop he was getting a new Fire for his birthday!
Beer Mug Gift Card for my hubby's b-day....well, you guessed it...he likes beer! I was
going to get him a gift card to a local shop that has many different styles beer,
but decided not to limit him. Turns out he spent it mostly on books!
