HSS Challenge #98- Unique Folds- A Gift For All!!!

Good Morning Stampers, I have been SO crazy the last week.  I had such great intentions of making several videos and showing other projects I have been making… and NONE of those things got done.  Thanks to life, stress, a cold, school parties, work parties, church activities, oh and did I mention I was sick- yeah that took a lot out of me.  But I am finally turning a corner and I was SO excited to make the project for today’s Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments– check it out, it is a gift withing a GIFT!!!

It’s all about the unique folds in this weeks project

I love this little gift card holder- you flip open the top of the gift and….

It holds another little gift- a gift card!  Can you imagine making these for birthdays, valentines day, anniversaries, graduations, ANY occasion!!

I used a large designer brad to hold it closed- you just slip your top just behind the brad.  Want to know what is inside the star?? It’s Dazzling Details the cherry cobbler color from the NEW mini!!!!  I LOVE this stuff- is sparkles and shines!!!
Here is a shot of it with the tab open and unlocked from the brad.

Here is another FAV thing about this project, THE BOW!!!  I made these using the med. oval punch and the scallop oval punch.  I love how it looks like a paper version of our ruffled ribbon.
 I hope you enjoyed today’s project, my intention is to make a few videos this week and post them for you guys.  I think its possible as my kids are out of school and after tomorrow I will be DONE with all my shopping. Whew- Christmas is JUST around the corner. :)
