Teacher gift cards.

Both son's classes pooled money together to get the teachers VISA gift cards for Christmas. Well, I can't just give it to them in that packaging, can I?

Have you ever used the 5-in-1 template from Stampin' Up!? Yet, another thing I've had for a while and opened up to finally use. I found this tutorial on Jeanna's blog: Stamp Time Somewhere. I had to try it out.

I made mine a little different, in that I didn't add the extra "liner" on the flap. Also, I used these magnetic snaps instead of velcro for the closure. Streamlined and slick!

This project was using about some of the stuff I had! I broke into my package of SU! Dashing 12x12 Designer Paper (whew, just in time for the holidays!).

It feels good to use some stuff. It was hard to use some of it, like the magnetic snaps. I wanted to HOARD them but then I convinced myself it would be ok. I could order more. And if I didn't use them and use them and order more, then they might not make them anymore. Funny how that works ;).

Loved the gift card idea. I'm trying this again! Hope it posts. I love the Dashing paper. I have all kinds of ideas for the gift card - by just changing the paper - wedding, baby, birthday, etc. WOW this is exciting!
