I have been super busy making and packaging teacher gifts as my sons finish school for the Christmas holidays this week.
My youngest sons teacher has been a true blessing this last year and I wanted to get her something special but everyone who is close to her, (who I asked) said a gift card would be best. I guess that at least she will get exactly what she wants now : - )
I used the santa boot card template from Whimsie Doodles and just made a few alterations. I also used a digital stamps from The Cutting Cafe.
I cut the template in half so I had two separate boot pieces and then made cuts in the "back" boot to hold the gift card. I then joined the two pieces together at the holly leaves with a brad so the card swings open. (By the way I didn't use the card in its original form as I had to enlarge it to fit the gift card and the template then no longer fit on one page.)
Here is an open view of the card.
And this is the gift that I added so that my little one had a "gift" to give (he said that the card was NOT a gift!). A face cloth cupake- yum FAT FREE, what could be better.
I used this template which I used upside down.
