Teacher Gifts - Samantha Walker Blog Hop


Hello Everyone!

Today is the day for the May Samantha Walker Blog Hop and this month our theme is teacher gifts.  As you hop along today, you will see so many great projects. Welcome to this month's hop!



I created my gift card holder using two of Samantha's great products.  First I used papers from the A-Z Mega Collection and then I used the Digital Cuts Gate Fold Artisan Card file (which is on sale TODAY at Jessica Sprague.)


I printed the striped paper onto white card stock and then used my Silhouette Cameo to finish the card, filling the inside with floral and notebook papers before cutting it out.

I added magnets so that the gift card holder could close securely and then added a stamped and colored  image from Bugaboo Stamps to the front.

Now, if this is your first stop, be sure to head over to Samantha Walker's blog to start at the beginning!  And don't forget that we have PRIZES!
