Je T'aime - FTTC152

Hi All! And a Very Happy Monday to you! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Mine was very nice and relaxing.. I did actually get a few things done in my Crafts room that I wanted, but not nearly as much as I had planned.. lol Does that every happen to you.? I got a little side tracked.. lol Oh well, still a Very Good weekend, non-the-less. 8-) Well, today I'm back with my latest creation inspired by Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #152. And Miss Heather is asking us to create anything but a card. And since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I just had to create something with a Valentine theme..  ( again..lol) 8-)
I made up this Sweet little Gift Card Holder.  It's a variation of a Fun idea I found through Pinterest and you can check out the tutorial Here. You could really do these fun little gift card holders up so many different ways too. Plus it's kind of a neat way to recycle! 8-)  The base of my Gift Card holder is actually a toilet paper roll.. I flattened it up and creased the sides with a bone folder and sealed the bottom with a strip of score tape. I added a bit of distressing with my Snow Cap paint dauber and inked my edges with a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I adhered my MME Love Me dp's and punched hearts MS border and then my Sweet rose heart image from Flourishes Hearts & Flowers set.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black onto Flourishes Classic White  and colored it up with my trusty Copics using Flourishes Lenten Rose Copic Collection. I fussy cut out my image and popped it up with some foam tape and added my Sentiment also from the same set onto a hand cut distressed banner that I popped up with foam tape as well. To finish it all up, I added  some eyelets, and ribbon from my stash so I could also attach this to a gift like an Extra Special gift tag too, if I wanted. To get to the Gift Card inside, you just pull the ribbon up and it brings the Gift card up with it, kind of like a Cocoa Slider.. 8-)

Hope you all have a Wonderful day & Thanks so much for Stopping by! 8-)
