golfafella gift card holder

Good morning everyone...how was your weekend? I got lots accomplished and I'm thrilled about that. I still have A LOT to do but that is life I guess.

Remember the other day when I showed you the box that I made for my friend's birthday? Well, we went and had dinner at that friend's house last night to celebrate our husband's birthdays. Papa Al's birthday was last week and Todd's is tomorrow. Anyway, we got a gift card to a local coffee place for Papa Al so I decided to alter a Sheetload of Shortcuts gift card holder to present it in. Papa Al is a big fisher and golfer so I had to go to Golfafella. I don't recall which patterned paper this is but I have used it with Golfafella in the past and toally love the argyle paper with the argyle socks. Too fun! I have used the bashful blue taffeta to hold this holder together as I have the birthday sentiments popped up on the inside so it is quite thick.

I enjoyed altering this holder until I got to the inside panel that actually holds the gift card...wow, that was quite the pain. I still don't think it looks top notch but I do know that Papa Al loved it and really that is all that counts!

Tomorrow is Created by Courtney day so I hope you'll check back to see what fun CBC Challenge you'll want to try (and it is fun)!
