Happy Monday - H[ippity] Hop!

Whee! 5 days til Christmas? How did THAT happen?!?!?!

A nice, quick, simple project for you today. This one can be adapted to most any occasion, so I hope it's useful! :)

Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday. I'm not quite sure how my "baby" ended up to be 22 - I'm not that old! But, I needed a gift card holder....

Supplies used:

Ippity, Party Hat Wishes
American Crafts cardstock
random cardstock
Spica markers
tiny attacher

Simple! Take a 4.5 inch by 8.5 inch piece of cardstock. Score from one end 1.5 inch, 3 inch, and 4.5 inch - fold to create a pocket. I'm totally addicted to my tiny attacher at the moment, so I used staples...but adhere however you'd like. :)

Score 1.5 inch down from the other end, to create a flap. Take a 4.5 by 1.75 inch piece of patterned paper, contrasting cardstock, etc. Decorate as you'd like.

Then, attach your flap. I used Zip repositionable adhesive. You could use a velcro dot, tack it over and over, or any temporary attachment you'd like.
