April Paper Pumpkin.. Gift Card Holders

Paper Pumpkin...
My subscription arrived on Tuesday.  I looked at the cute little cards and wondered how I would use them (there are also "mom" and "dad" stamps.  I needed 5 gift card holders yesterday morning before work and I realized I could use this month's project!
 I changed up the actual design to work for my needs.  Instead of the bow that comes with the kit, I used the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set and coordinating punch to create a pretty centerpiece.
 I also used the In-Color Clothespins that are now on clearance instead of the twine that came with the kit!  I wanted the Secretaries to be able to hang their cute note on their desk.
 This is the front of the card - perfectly coordinating with the project!
And finally the inside.... my co-teacher realized we could type up a list of names instead of trying to fit them on the cards.  GREAT idea!  So much easier than passing around 5 cards to 12 people to sign!  I used a glue dot to attach the gift card (which by the way, is a new"er" pub by my school that has delicious food and drinks).  

Thanks for following me!

I love the change. I am going to use that idea for Teacher Appreciation Week.

Thanks for the inspiration.
