It's Tuesday and that means challenge day over at AiFactory Challenge Blog
. For Challenge 17, we're using a super cute clip art set perfect for scrapbook layouts, tags, and cards. To enter this challenge, simply show us your gift ideas! Here is mine:
I made four of these for Bean's teachers. They are really good to her and she talks about them with affection...I know she's only 2 1/2, but she really does express herself well. Anyway, these are sort of like little wallets having two pockets, a writing area, and a place for a gift card.
Here's an inside view. On the right, I used one of the clip art images from AiFactory, and will write a small note to each of the teachers. The left side holds the gift card, and the slots contain the Ghirardelli chocolates.
Details: The cardstock is cut at 5.5" by 8". Using my scor-pal, I folded the long end 1/4", then folded again in half and glued in place (you have a flat tube). Then I scored the middle at 4", placed my ribbon using just a little adhesive, then sewed down the middle (the ribbon is now held in place and two pockets are formed). I forgot to mention I made two cuts to hold the gift card BEFORE gluing together. So now just add candy, gift card, embellish, and tie shut.
Other deets: Ellen Krans cardstock, Ghirardelli chocolate/caramel candy, Stampin' Up's
Cute & Curly with coordinating punch, AiFactory clipart
, ribbon, Firebrick Red Ranger Ink, glue.
