JAI #293 Just add a gift tag
how is everyone coping with the crazy time of year? I will have to admit to feeling somewhat overwhelmed at the moment. I know eventually everything will get done - but I'm a way off from that point yet.
This week at Just Add Ink I set the challenge - to Just Add a Gift Card. I deliberately timed this challenge at the point when I knew I would be needing to get gift card holders ready for some of the older kids in my family. Since they just get a gift card I always try to make the packaging something special and different each year. It worked perfectly and they are in the post!
Hope the challenge proves to be as useful to you as it was to me!
Here's what I came up with this year.
A close up of the gold versions.
And the silver versions.
So where's the gift card? Turn it over and it's all revealed.
Opened up to reveal the gift card.
I have to admit I love the combination of the Softly Falling embossing folder and the Sleigh Ride Edgelits (my first pick from the SU! Christmas catalogue -sadly retiring :( ). A little glitter edging adds the Christmas glitz and the bell adds a fun interactive touch (the gold ones were salvaged from the neck ribbons from Lindt Easter bunnies - I knew they'd come in handy one day - lol!). The little star tag was added so I could right in the kid's names.
We'll be running this challenge for two weeks to take us across the Christmas period (closing date Dec 30) so you'll have time to join us and show us your great gift card ideas. Do check out the rest of the DT for some inspiring gift card ideas.
Thanks for visiting and a very Merry Christmas to you all - may it be happy, safe and fun!
