A very good friend of mine is going back to college to finish her degree and unfortunately for us (her friends) it means she is moving away!
I decided to use some of the inspirational quotes from Unity Stamp Company as well as the Rockabilly Specialty paper to create her gift set. This is the gift bag that it is all going in! I used the same sketch on the front of the bag as on the card. It is also a CASE of my own creation from an OCC challenge a while back!
Here is a pic of the whole set. The altered paint can is filled with jelly beans and ju jubes AKA 'study snacks'! The sentiment on the little tag on the handle was computer generated.
My sister, another friend and I decided to pool our funds to get Megan some gift certificates to help her out while she's a starving student! I altered Texas Grammy's Photo Wallet to be a Multi-Card Gift Card Holder! There's a brief tutorial with photos a little further down to show you how I did that!
Here's a closer look at the card and the can! I absolutely LOVE these sentiments from Unity...they are perfect for so many occasions!! I dyed the little flowers on the card sentiment with the RHR ink pad.
And here we have the Multi Card GC Holder Open! I used the awesome girls from the Close To My Hear SOTM set to decorate the gc pockets!
To make this multi-card holder using Texas Grammy's photo wallet tutorial follow these easy directions:
Base - Score a 4-1/4 X 12" piece of cardstock at 3-1/4 , 6-5/8 , 9-7/8 and 10".
Flaps - Cut two 3X8 pieces of dp or cs and round the corners (if you'd like). Score at 4".
Gift Card Pockets - Cut 4 pieces of CS 7-1/4 X 3-3/8. Score 1/2" in on each long side and score at 3-5/8 across the short side (or just fold it in half!). Cut off each 1/2 inch flap up to the center score line! (see photo below). You can then use your circle punch to punch out a half-circle if desired. You may also choose to stamp your images, if any, now!
Apply adhesive to the 2 flaps and adhere the pocket together. You can now attach these to the Wallet Flaps.
You could easily make this for SIX gift cards, but I used the third section for our sentiment which I computer generated!
For those of you that are curious as to what GC's we got for her, we opted for $50 VISA card, $50 Multi-Restaraunt Chain card, $25 Movie Theatre card, and $25 Chapters card.
We are sad to be losing our friend to another part of the province but happy and excited that she is taking this step to better her life!! She is sooo smart and will be able to accomplish whatever she chooses!! I hope these gifts help her to remember how much she is adored!! Which reminds me I forgot to make a frame!!! CRAP!! Better go get that done!
Thank you so much for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee and I would love to hear what you think!
