iTunes Gift Card Holder

I had a hard time trying to match up my card stock with the iTunes gift cards for my daughter and son-in-law. I decided to use Melon Mambo for hers and Wild Wasabi for his. These gift cards are larger than the normal ones so here are the measurements I used:

6 1/2" x 9" card stock
Score on the 9 1/4" side at 1 1/2" and 5 3/8"
Decorate as desired.

I attached the image panel to the ribbon on the front. Once untied, the gift card holder can be easily opened.

Christmas Money/Gift Card Holder

My Mother has everything she could possibly want so, for Christmas, DH and I usually give her a small gift and money. I usually try to find a creative way to present the money so that It takes on the appearance of a gift. I cased the outside of this gift card/money holder: and I followed some of the directions for the inside of this graduation gift card/money holder:

SCS CCC11 Christmas Card Challenge

I've already started making my Christmas Cards for 2011. It was great getting an early start for 2010 and having most of the work done before December. This year I will strive to complete the insides of my cards.

I cased this card from the SCS Gallery found here: I love SU!'s Cherry Cobbler and the Christmas Season gave me plenty of reason to use it. I'll have to find another Fav since Spring will be here soon.

Cookie Boxes

I am trying to get inspired to do my holiday baking, decorating, and shopping. I ran across this cookie box and decided to make a couple. Directions can be found here:

I used So Saffron and Basic Black card stock on the first box. I also used the Martha Steward Butterfly punch and a border stamp from Stampin' Up!

The second box is made using Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock. The flower was made using the Stampin' Up! Scallop punch and Whisper White card stock.
