Welcome to the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas. Today is day 3 and the designers have some great Christmas projects to show you! For each of the five days, we will have a giveaway. You can check out Emma's blog for information on today's giveaway.
As I've shared before, The Hubs and I have a TON of gift cards to give for Christmas this year. Two of our nieces (Jenna, age 8 + Mariah, age 7) are very girly and love to shop. They've asked for gift cards to Justice for Girls this year. Ask and ye shall receive!
It's usually a no-brainer to wrap gift cards: throw them in a box or an envelope and you're all set. With so many to give this year, I wanted to switch it up a bit. So the girls are getting Gift Card Sandwiches. Who doesn't love a sandwich?
Disclaimer: This is a totally made-up name that I'm hoping will go viral in the crafting/blogging world. Spread the news. :o)
These 'sandwiches' are simply made by 'smooshing' two chipboard coasters together with a gift card glue-dotted inside. I then tied a bow around the sandwich to keep it together.
By the way, have you seen the wonderful bow-tying technique that doesn't leave any knots or bumps? Check this out. Totally worth it.
I decorated my Sandwiches using fabulous stamps + dies from MCT (recipe below).
