Joy's Life Teacher Gifts Blog Hop and Giveaway!


Welcome to the Joy's Life Design Team's Teacher gifts blog hop! You should have arrived here from Lori's blog. If not, you might want to start at the beginning over on Joy's blog. There is a lot of inspiration and lots of prizes to be had!

When I saw this stamp set, I couldn't wait to make something using the espresso set stamp and sentiment. I LOVE coffee!

So, I decided to make a gift card holder suitable for a starbucks gift card. What teacher wouldn't love that?!

Isn't that cute?! And it's SO simple! I just put some Jillibean soup paper in the back of the gift card holder. It's the perfect green to go with anything Starbucks. Then I tied some webster's pages ribbon around it and finished it with a cute tag.
I made the tag with a spellbinders nestabilities die and of course the adorable joy's life stamp from the Tag You're It ONE set. I finished it off by coloring the image in to match. Now all it needs is the gift card!
