Is any else in disbelief that tomorrow is Thanksgiving? A day that most of us in the United States will spend with family and friends, feasting and giving thanks for all that we hold dear in our lives.
Shortly after many of us will wake in the wee hours of the morning to make a mad dash to our favorite retail destination for a little Black Friday shopping. It’s a tradition that occurs year after year for many, myself included.
But this year I’m going to buck the system. No more standing outside in the cold and rain (because it always seems to rain when I go out on Black Friday). And no more waiting in lines that wrap around a store… if you’ve done it, you know what I’m talking about.
This Black Friday I’m going to stay home and be crafty. I might make an extra early run to Starbucks at 5:30 am, but I will be certain to return home to the comfort of my desk chair to finish up my holiday cards. Here’s one that I’ve started working on…
I think of it as my gift card because it is a tri-fold card that will either hold a gift card or gift inside.
Open the first flap and there is a spot for a sentiment and a personal note.
Then open the other flap and there’s a pocket for a special gift or gift card. Here I’ve made a few coordinating gift tags to send along with the card.
Now I just need to make about 10 more of these to cover all of my neighbors and kids’ teachers. What are your plans for the weekend… want to join me? Leave a comment by 5 PM MST on Thursday for your chance to win Anna Griffin’s Twinkle Bright Christmas collection that I used on my projects. You can make a few along with me!
Here’s to a great holiday with many blessings!
P.S. For step-by-step instructions hop on over to my blog. You can also check out a few other cards that I’ve made using the same collection!
