We had another birthday and with it, another gift card to be properly presented. This time I didn’t totally laze out and did a tiny bit of inking on the white star…not much, because I was in a hurry and didn’t have time to play around too much. I just needed the star to show up against the inside of the white card.
So, my son was invited to a birthday party and I, being the quintessential procrastinator, bought a gift card the day before, but I didn’t have a card or gift card holder. Time to pull out some scrapbook paper. I thought, “hmmm…maybe I’ll try some of those cool card techniques I keep pinning on Pinterest.” I wanted to do some nice inking around the edges, but I’m kinda lazy (and since it was for an 8-year-old I didn’t want to spend any more time than necessary). So here’s what she got:
Cute striped paper. I cut out the sun with my handy-dandy exacto (yes, a lot of work for the lazy crafter) and raised it with foam tape.
The inside features a sun pocket to hold the gift card. I wanted to do more to the inside and the outside, but yeah, I’m lazy.
So for Dad’s birthday, I needed a fun, easy, cheap gift since the stuff he really wants isn’t available yet or not my area of expertise to buy. Thanks to my new addiction Pinterest, I found this little gem.
So I loaded up the kids and headed out to the drug store. They didn’t have everything to make our version, so we had to make two more stops. All in all, I thought it turned out super cute. I wish my handwriting was a little neater and my lines were straighter, but I had to fit more candy on my card…so that’s my excuse.
