Birthday Gift Card Box

Tuesday is my "guaranteed" work day.  That means when the hubby gets home from work I head upstairs to my scrap area and make new projects, take and edit pictures, load items to my store and generally work on things for my budding little business.  Over the last couple of days I've been having a blast making templates for new products and turning those templates into fun new things.  There is a bit of trial and error, but overall it is a ton of fun for me.

This is one of my favorite new things that I made over the last couple of days.  This is a gift card box that I made in the style of a matchbox.  I decorated the top of the box with a feminine birthday in mind.  I love how it turned out!

In this image you can see how the inside of the box pulls out like a matchbox.  The boxes measure 3 inches wide, 5 inches long and half an inch deep.  Perfect to slip a little note into or just put a gift card to their favorite store.

A close up of the cover design.  I have no idea where I got those flowers....I've had them for that long, but I thought the coloring was perfect for the paper and everything just seemed to fit together.

After I'm done doing some more gift card holders for birthdays, I'm going to move on to Christmas.  Now those are going to be F-U-N!  I have so many ideas for fun shapes and styles that I can't wait to design and create.

Like I said, I've been working on a ton of stuff, so I'll hopefully get to show you all the fun things I'm working on in the coming weeks.

Also, I've decided to post things for sale on Shophandmade.com.  The link to my store is:  http://www.shophandmade.com/Store/Melissakaye80.  I will be posting things on my blog that will not be for sale in that store because of licensing requirements, so be sure to check back here for those things!

If you aren't a follower yet, I'd love it if you did that!
