Thinlet Mini Treat Bag Gift Card Holder

 Okay, so I was so excited to share this project with you.  I ALWAYS try and find "out of the box" ideas for products that we have so that I can upsell them to those who think they don't "need" it, so here it is..A fun little gift card holder.  I had a workshop this past weekend and this is what I came up for my hostess who asked for Graduation gift giving ideas. PERFECT! I started by cutting the treat bag from Basic Black card stock and assembling as it is meant to be, except that I cut off the ridges at the top.  I used our new Tiny Bow Punch from the Occassions Mini catalog from the Best Day Ever DSP pack that was a FREE item from the Salebration catalog and assembled it.  I used the FREE buttons that I earned from Salebration and stuck them to the front of the suit coat.
For the inside, I cut down some Crushed Curry card stock and layering some Whisper White on top.  I stamped out the Happy and graduation in Calyspo Coral ink and the banner in Sahara Sand from the stamp set Celebrate Today which is also in the new Occassions Mini.  The star border that holds in the gift card is cut from the star die that is in the Thinlet Mini Treat Bag set. (There is ALOT of dies in that one set!) and just glued on three sides.  I stapled a piece of Crushed Curry ribbon that is also FREE during SAB.
I hope this helps you think ahead for spring, it does me! Looking forward to some 40 degree temps this weekend! Have a super Tuesday!
