Thankful for Fans!!

Welcome to my stop on the "Thankful for 3 Girl JAM Fans Blog Hop!"  The 3 Girl JAM design team has joined up with a few of our friends and fans to put together an awesome hop full of inspiration and fun!  (You should have come here from Rhonda's blog. START HERE to enjoy the full hop.)

3 Girl JAM has put together an awesome prize package of crafty goodness!  To win it, all you have to do is leave a comment on each stop of the hop.  Easy peezy!

Here is a clever way to give a gift card using a standard A2 envelope.

  Fold it in half.
Crease the edge. 
Cut a slice out of the right flap.
Lick the left side shut.
Add a Removable Glue Dot® on the right side.
Slide in your gift card.

Decorate and embellish as you wish!  
I used bling, enamel dots, and brads from the Eyelet Outlet to decorate the holiday tree.
Prop up the front panel using Pop Up Relief Glue Dots ®
Use a length of 3 Girl JAM white crinkle ribbon to tie it shut.
Simply slide it under the top panel.

Today also starts the next challenge with Pretty Cute Stamps.
For this project, I used the set "Oh, Christmas Tree" and "Dear Santa."
This is a great way to gift away a gift card!  
(Though now I think I should have used the "Naughty or Nice?" sentiment on the inside. heheh)
 Link up your gift giving ideas using Pretty Cute Stamps

on the PCS company blog by December 12th.  That way, I have 12 more days to use your ideas!
