Today’s post is a super creative 18th birthday gift that Blair made for her daughter Elizabeth’s 18th birthday. It is a legal gift now that she is 18 and lottery tickets are legal for her. It is a clever concept to use 18 lottery tickets to make the 4 tier birthday cake that Elizabeth wanted. Blair did not have time to make the actual 4 tier cake so instead made a cake from the lottery tickets while waiting for her daughter to show up for the surprise birthday party her friends threw for her. Adorable!
Today’s post is a card and a gift card holder all in one! I used the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774. This was one of the projects we made a couple of months ago at my envelope punch card class. The DSP is the now retired I am me Stampin Up DSP paper collection. The gift card pocket is a wrap created using the Stampin Up envelope punch board. The sentiment is from the Happy Day (retired) stamp set and then cut using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983. The banners are punched using the Banner #1333519 punch and attached to the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine.
Today’s post is a shows a great way to decorate the Stampin Up gift card enclosures #136662. Each pack of gift card enclosures is a pack of 10 precut. prescored, gift card enclosures from Kraft cardstock. They are ready to decorate and add a gift card inside. I use the fun Sweet Taffy DSP#133693 not only because it coordinated with my Starbucks birthday gift card but I think the paper screams birthday fun! I added a tag made using the Scallop Tag Topper #133324 and accented it with a layered flower punched from the Petite Petals #133322 and the Itty Bitty Accents #133787 punches. I added the sentiment from the Yippee Skippe stampset #131344 an tied it closed with a piece of Hello Honey 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon #133671.
Today’s second post is a fun way to add money to your kids Easter basket. Our sister Blair loves to create cutesy stuff for her 3 girls and really loves Googley eyes. She used her origami skills to make some funny money bunnies for he daughter who is in college and not spending time with the family this Easter.
In Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two and so did Blair when she made these adorable Grinch giftcard holders for her corpsmen. They loved them so much that they have them hanging in their workspace. But then again who does not love the Grinch? Blair made these using her favorite Big Shot die – the top note#113463. She used Circles for the eyes and the beloved word window punch #119857 for the brows. She textured the brim of his hat with the petals a plenty folder #116824 and hand drew his face. She added a pocket on the backside using 1/2 a top note to tuck the gift card in.
