No question about it… QUICK is what I need with only 4 days left until Christmas and barely a dent in my gift wrapping!
With no time to spare, I reach for my “go to” set… 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe and I created this 3.25″x 4.75″ simple gift card holder in 15 mins! I’m not sure what 15 mins. means for many of you … but 15 mins. is a world record for me!!!! 🙂
Yes, I used papers that were already sitting on my craft table from last week’s card. That alone cut off about 1.5 hours of time not having to decide what colors of paper I wanted to work with! LOL!
This gift card is for a young man… and even though he would be just as happy to receive the enclosed iTunes gift card in a brown paper bag… (nope, I couldn’t do that!), the presentation of this gift card would have to be clean and simple 🙂 So, with no bling and sneaking in only a strip of ribbon… not thinking about embellishments must have saved another 2 hours or so! LOL!
Well, this is as quick as I have ever come… I think he’ll like it!
