MONICA 1I LOVE making 3d items and gift boxes and so with our challenge being Wrap It Up! it was perfect timing.  For today’s project, I decided to use the Oh Deer Collection Kit, my Silhouette, Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets, and Stitched Snowflake Dies.  Just a few items on hand were the perfect combination for this perfect small gift wrapping needed for a very common gift we all give during the holiday season.    
MONICA 2Gift Cards are very popular to give during the holiday season. How about dressing it up and adding some dazzle? That’s exactly what I did today using the Oh Deer Collection Kit. I am loving using it for all my gift giving needs as the colors are so vibrant and pretty. Did you know you can purchase it here in our BOUTIQUE? We even include metal sheets in the pack.

I created the snowflake using the aluminum side of craft metal sheet and ran it through the Big Shot with the Stitched Snowflake Die.  The fun part was creating this fun Pull Out Gift Card Holder using the Silhouette. It was so easy and I made it in under 10 minutes. Very easy and your family and friends will think you spent hours making this adorable gift card holder. 

Update:  As promised, the Peppermint Foot Soak recipe is now posted HERE.  I am working on videos and tutorials that will be released throughout this week and next week.
