Kawaii Popcorn Gift Card Holder

 Annie has been making some of the cutest gift card holders lately, I just love them.  I asked her to make a popcorn gift card holder.  I am going to give this to my hubby for his birthday with all kinds of movie treats.  He loves to go to the movies so this is perfect for him.  When you get it just make sure to size the black circles to 1" and the gift card will fit perfectly in the cutouts.  I did punch a hole in mine to tie it onto the treats.  You can get this in the SVG Cutting Files store on Friday.

Happy fishing!

This is the card and gift box I made for my hubby for Father's Day.  He loves to fish...I mean he really loves to fish!!  The card is a gift card holder (which is from his favorite store...Cabela's) also the handle on the reel moves so the words spin.  It says spare not the rod.  This was made from a file from the Silhouette store.  

The fun little box is a LW file so you know it is easy and fits together great.  I did shrink it down and filled it with fish...of course!

Robot Spinner Card

Well it is time for another new monthly challenge over at SVG Cutting Files.  The theme this month is "Something for a boy".  Since I have so many grandsons I decided to make a fun boy birthday card.  I used the new penny slider card bases and the new flying robot.  I did a  print and cut on the robot and I also cut him out of chipboard to make him more sturdy.  It is hard to show with photos how much it spins as you move it but it is awesome!  My grandsons will love it!!
