Just For You! ~ with Scrappy Moms Stamps

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

It's Tuesday and time for another Terrific Tuesday Challenge at Scrappy Moms Stamps!

This week's challenge is "Back to School."

I know many of you are sending the kids back to school this week and we wanted to give some inspiration for the start of the school year.

I thought it would be fitting to make a gift card holder that could be used as a teacher gift, helper gift, or reward for a job well done.

This was fast and simple to make.

The gift card holder was made using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge that was a free download for the Gypsy.

I sized it to fit a gift card. I then used the blackout feature as I don't like the tick marks. This would be great to make with double-sided cardstock but I don't have any that was large enough for this project. I cut the pocket tag from Kraft and then lined it with a smaller tag.

My patterned paper is My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy Boy." I love the colors in this stack!

I choose a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Dancing in Circles" set. I used a 1.25 inch circle punch to cut it out and a 1.5 inch scallop punch and layered them together. I added a star that I cut from the Chore Chart Cricut Lite cartridge.

To finish things off I added a boy made from The Twinery "Lemon Drop" Baker's Twine that you can, also, purchase from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

This was so fast that you could easily make a few of these in a short period of time.

I hope you will join us this week. I cannot wait to see all your school projects!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!
