September Blog Hop

It is time again for another Blog Hop hosted by Papertrey Ink! This month, Nichole asked us to make a holiday inspired project. Wow!! I am not sure if I am ready to make holiday stuff yet....but it helped that Dawn and I made some Christmas cards just a few nights ago.
I had intended to do something really wow...had a whole bunch of things out on my craft table to alter and what not....but ended up making something pretty basic afterall! There just wasn't enough time to do any of the ideas I had running around in my head.
These are gift card holders made from a template by Kristina Werner on Two Peas. I loved the curved front flap and knew I wanted to make some!! She has even left a template which made making these a breeze.
Supplies: Paper - Sahara Sand, Kraft, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Ruby Red, Old Olive (SU!); Designer Paper - Provo Craft, Anna Griffin; Stamps-Polka Dot Basics, Faux Ribbon, Believe (Papertrey Ink); Year Round Fun 2 (Stampin' Up); Ink-Old Olive, Ruby Red, Basic Black (SU); Other - olive, white ribbon (Michael's), snowflakes.
I hope you like them!! Now I am off to check out what everyone else has created. I am sure I'll be getting lots of great holiday gift giving ideas tonight!!
Thanks for dropping in for a visit!
