~Need A Sweet Gift for Someone?~

My sisters birthday was last week and I got her a charm bracelet from Amy Hanson but I also got her a Starbucks Card.....but I wanted to make it feel more special then just a generic gift card.
I got these tins(For some reason it won't link directly to the tins, but follow the link and they are on page 4 of Metals)a while back from Paper Valise. I only bought 2, which now I am kicking myself for....cause I LOVE them.

ETA- I found it HERE also.

Anyway, so I used Pink Paislee products to fancy it up a bit. I used the 5th Avenue paper(still one of my favorite papers from Pink Paislee) from the Tinsel Town collection. I used the gingham Bewitching paper from the Fascinating Line,the Lunch Hour paper from the Office Lingo line, the Sweet Cakes Stamp set and the Sugar Plum Pixee Stix glitter.

I just traced the original Starbucks card holder to create my holder pattern and scored the fold lines and put it together with the products. It was pretty easy.

I used the heat gun to curl the ribbon that I tied on the tin and that's it. It was super fun to make and turned out really cute.

She loved it! So next time you need to give a gift card and need to spice it up a bit use a tin to make a homemade holder for it.!!
