Karli's Gift Card Buddy

Right after the holidays my blogging buddy Karli (Crafting with Class) put out a tutorial for a gift card buddy. How brilliant is this idea. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to give it a try. I'm the girl with a drawer full of gift cards, not only mine, but everyone in the family has me keeping track of their gift cards. Half of the time I can't find what I'm looking for. Karli's tutorial was quick and easy. I even doubled up the cards in each slot, Karli's suggestion, also. I can't believe how organized I feel! Karli has many fantastic tutorials and lots of great projects on her blog, check it out. Thanks for a great tutorial Karli!




For my buddy I used Melanie from Rubber Romance. Thought she'd be the perfect image for a gift card buddy. She's glitzed up a bit with stickles on her bags and hat.



Here is the inside view, check out how neatly it holds my gift cards.

Thank you very much for dropping by today! Hope your week is off to a good start!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Rubber Romance Melanie
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI ssw, Only Orange, Real Red, DCWV summer stack
Embellishments: SU ribbon, MM rhinestones, stickles, copics, circle punch, red line adhesive

I made a gift card holder for my mom and son for Christmas and filled it with cards...It was easier than I thought to make...and they really loved them. Yours is so cute....Love the shopping lady...You did a great job of coloring...

Love this idea. All my gift cards are in an old used envelope in my purse. this would be so much cuter hanging out with my wallet, don't you think?
I like your card front, too BTB.
