ppa4 anything but a card

This week's PPA challenge was anything but a card. But I really needed to make some birthday-celebration cards and gift card holders to have on hand. So I created these fun little holders to keep my stash in.
First, I used this cute little mini magazine holder tutorial from Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho to hold several gift card holders. The gift card holders I just figured out myself with a simple trifold.
Next I made this fun and very easy box-basket to hold a set of 9 cards (why 9? I don't know! Seems like it should be 10 or 12, shouldn't it? I admit there's a little bit of Adrian Monk in me :) I found a quick little tutorial from Claudia at Pretty Pressings for the box. It's a great size to hold gifts or cards. Tune in later for a close up of each of the cards in my card stash. Off to get the children up and moving for school and me to work.
Stamps: none
Paper: SU Simply Scrappin Kit
Other: Ribbon, Scor-Pal, SU punches
