One for the Money

This is a fun way to give someone a "non present." I really like how simple this gift card holder is to make and you could easily adapt it for birthdays and other occasions as well.

Start out with a piece of card stock that measures 4-1/2 x 7" and score it twice to create the pocket and the cover. The fold lines should be at 2-1/2 at one end, then 1-1/2 at the other. Use a bone folder to get a nice crease and secure the pocket with Sticky Strip to make sure it can handle the stress of a gift card.

I secured a ribbon on the back to tie it shut and decorated the flaps with patterned paper. The front also features the ornament stamp from Delightful Decorations. It has a coordinating punch too...so easy!

Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Christmas! I hope you all enjoy being with your families and have a WONDERFUL holiday season!!!

Glitter and Shine, you are MINE

These are fun...take some clear glass ornaments and transform them into sparkly little beauties. Just put 20 or more drops of any ink color you wish inside the ornament and turn it over to let it coat the inside and drip any excess out. Then add a teaspoon or so of Dazzling Diamonds to bring out the BLING! Just make sure you shake the glitter inside to prevent clumping. You can also take this idea up a notch and add rub ons or Decor Elements on the outside on the ornament. I tried several colors and LOVE them all!
