Gosh, Winter is just hanging on. We got about 4" of snow over the weekend. It's just cold, windy and spitting more snowflakes this morning! We're not supposed to warm up until this Saturday!
Today, I have a gift card treat holder to share with you! Let's take a look:
My project today is inspired by Dawn Olchefske. Dawn made these adorable treat holders using the bottom half ot the gift card holder in Stampin' Up's monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit called Pocketful of Cheer. You can see Dawn's post by clicking on the link below:
Now, you know me by now! I just have to change things up and make it my own way. Instead of using the bottom of the gift card treat holder like Dawn did, I used the top portion.
I cut the gift card treat holder in half at the center score line.
I scored the round end and folded it over to create a little flap. I used SU's Tear & Tape and adhered the two sides together to form a pocket. I apologize for not having any candy treats in the pockets.
Using SU's Curvy Corner Trio Punch, I punched the top corners for a little added 'WOW' factor.
I stamped the sentiments from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Inks on SU's Whisper White Cardstock (since Easter is over, you can use any sentiment as Teeny Tiny Wishes is the perfect stamp set . I flagged both ends using my SU Paper Snips and adhered them to the treat holders with SU's Stampin' Dimensionals.
I stamped the flower from the Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin Kit in Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Inks on Blushing Bride and Pool Party Cardstocks. I punched the flowers out using the flower punch from SU;s Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
I tied 1/8" Melon Mambo ribbon around the gift card treat holder and into a bow shown in the first picture of this post. For the treat holder pictured above, I used SU's 1/8" Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon. Using my SU 1/8" Handheld Hole PUnch, I punched a hole in each side of the pocket, threaded the ribbon through and tied it into a bow. I then tied another bow around the first bow with SU's Whisper White Bakers Twine.
I adhered the flowers to the gift card treat holder and added a SU Basic Jewel Rhinestone to the center of each flower.
I adhered the banners using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals.
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blogs.

duplicating them and entering them into challenges. My cards and
projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or
