Christmas Gift Card Holders

My friend Nancy participates in a huge holiday craft bazaar every year after Thanksgiving and has been trying to get me to make some things for her table. This year I found a pretty simple project that I'll be able do and may sell well! Once again, I was inspired by Jen del Muro at i{heart}2stamp. Check out the awesome gift card holders she made for her local coffee shop. Here are my first attempts at a much simplified version. The heat embossing takes a while, but I really enjoy doing it! If you'd like a photo tutorial on how to make this, check out this link.

Eek! My blog has not died!!!

I know it's been forever, but this doesn't seem like a year where I'm going to get much time at my table. I did take a day a few weeks ago and assembly lined a bunch of Halloween cards for my friends at work. I got the idea from one of the blogs I regularly visit, Jen del Muro's i {heart}2 stamp. It was one of her SFYTT sketches and I did what I could with the supplies that I had! They were fun to make and fairly easy to make 10 once I got my original prototype made! Hope you like it!
