Hi Everyone!! THANK YOU to all the well wishes I received about my surgery. I survived my ankle surgery and it wasn't all that bad. It was first thing in the morning and I was home by 1pm. I did wish that I could have brought my camera into the operating room. That room was pretty awesome. There were huge TV monitors all over and all sorts of crazy equipment. And along one side of the room was this super long table that was organized with all sorts of scissors and knives and doohickeys and thingamajigs to use for the surgery. I wanted to take photos so badly! Yes, i'm a crazy scrapbooker. Rumor has it my doctor has some photos of the surgery and I think I want to see them. I think that might make me crazy for sure.
So onto prettier things, like this gift card holder. I used the Blue Hills Meadow December kit from Citrus Tree Studio to make this aqua, red, and white inspired project.
I glued two pieces of cardstock together to make the base of the holder. I then embellished with the December kit. I love love love this snowflake cut from my Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge! I dressed it up with some stickles, a button and baker's twine.
I also added this tag along with more yummy baker's twine.
The cardstock insert inside is just wide enough to hold a gift card. I attached the gift card with a little bit of adhesive and the insert pulls right out.
I love having gift card holders already made and ready to go. Because inevitably I will need one at the last minute and now I have one I can just grab and go. I love being ahead of the game!
Hope you all had a great week. I will be spending my weekend with my foot propped up, trying to find pain meds that work, and doing some online shopping with my husband's laptop on the couch. Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by today!
