Wowzers!!! Thanks so much for your comments on the Gift Card Buddies :) Got your gift card buddy? Fab! Now let's make a place for them to hang until it's time to go shopping. Here's...
"My Buddy's Keeper"
Here's what you'll need:standard size (A2) envelopes. As many as you have GC buddies
Adhesive of choice
Dowel or pencil
So here's how easy it is to put together:
Click on any pic to get a closer peek :)
Adhere your envelope's flap to the bottom of the next envelope
Adhere a (9") dowel to the top flap. Fold flap over the dowel. You are applying adhesive to the flap itself.
Decorate as desired.
I used different CB embossing folders that coordinated with each buddy.
1st Pocket: Hello Kitty EF (set of 3) I only used the 2 smaller ones
2nd pocket: Textile texture
3rd pocket: Tiny Bubbles
4th pocket: Stars
The alpha monogram on each was made with the Jasmine Cricut Cart
Next, Add ribbon so that you're able to hang it. Tie a strong knot to each end. I made separate bows & adhered them with glue dots. I can't make mine too frilly 'cause I'm in a house full of boys.
To keep everyone honest ;) we write the person's initials on the corner of the gift card with a Sharpie. We do get duplicate cards & this way we DO know who they belong to.
Ok, so that's the end of my tuts for this year :) Thanks so much for your comments on each of the tuts I've created. I'm still undecided about which video camera to get, but I look forward to bringing some video tutorials in 2010! Yaaay! I love video tuts! If you'd like to suggest a camera you like/use let me hear it, won't you! I would like to make a decision soon :)

Have a Happy New Year! and as always, thanks so much for peeking at my projects. I hope you like them enough to want to give them a try :) See ya next year Friends!!!
