Mother's Day is Coming!

Have you thought about what you are going to give that special woman in your life? Well, there is, of course, always the gift card option. And, it just so happens that Moxie Fab World has a Gift Card Holder challenge going on, so you can get LOTS of ideas on how to present it!

Mom Gift Card bag


This is my favorite way to present gift cards. All dolled up in a cute little brown paper bag ... and I NEVER forget the baker's twine!

The stamps are all from Scrolls Work! I used Ringer to create the background, letters from the Scrabble-a-bet alpha set, 'you' from Personal Holiday, and the spiked goth corners. They are all stamped with Tim Hotlz Distress Ink. The calendar paper is from Crate Paper and I added a cute Jenni Bowlin ticket, a Maya Road pin, and some lace and vintage buttons to dress up my little gift card holder.

It is sealed by a baker's twine bow at the top! Just slip in the gift card with a bit of shredded paper and it's the PERFECT presentation! I love making these! I've also found that people really enjoy receiving them...it just makes it more personal.

How do YOU present your gift cards?

Happy FRIDAY!!!! And...I got my car back yesterday and it looks good! The Hubbums is taking it to the tire shop today to get two more new tires on it because when the replaced the other ones we saw just how ready for replacing the old ones were and this way the tires will wear evenly. But, Lil' Blue will be back in action full time very soon! YAY!!!!
