Moxie Fab Gift Card Holder!

*EDIT: So happy to have won for this project at Moxie Fab World!!!



Back again with another entry for Moxie Fab World! This one is for the gift card holder challenge. I'm having so much fun playing with this color combo and layered bloom, that I thought I would put together a cute set for my mom's upcoming birthday. I used this purse template many times when teaching stamping classes at our local Joann store years ago. Take a peek...


Isn't it cute! I simply trace the pattern on cardstock, cut it out, then score two lines. Next I punched two holes to thread the ribbon handle through. I attach the small tail to the inside of the card with score tape and allow the knot to show so I don't have a lumpy fold. Then the fun of decorating begins! To match my gift tag from yesterday I added this pretty paper doliy letting it peek out under the purse flap. This was followed by the same layered bloom and leaves that I made yesterday (all stamps and dies are PTI). I am in love with the twill ribbon that PTI carries. It makes the most beautiful bows!!!


And speaking of bows, here's a close up showing the tiny tag stamped with "Mom" and a couple of pretty stick pins. I love the idea of sliding a button or two on the pin, such a pretty little detail! Add a gift card inside with a glue dot and you're good to go!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Your visits and comments mean the world to me ~Lisa
