A Gift Card Swap

I made these cute little gift card holders for a swap at Cardmaker hosted by my friend Jane. I used the tutorial found here. I adapted it a bit since I didn't have the thing Dawn uses to make the top of the purse. I think they turned out pretty cute. The flower in the top corner I made with my Cricut. I hope that counts for this week's Die Cuts R Us challenge which was to make your own embellishment. Using my Celebrations cartridge, I cut the bow for the present at 2 inches and 2.5 inches and put one of Jane's dew drops in the middle to make it look like a flower. I'm also entering this in this week's Just Buggin challenge which was to make something other than a card.

Paper: American Crafts and Bazzill

Nesties: Scalloped Circles
Die Cuts: Celebrations cartridge "bow" cut at 2" and 2.5"
