New at SU: This Piggy is Giving a Gift Card

Giving a gift card makes everyone happy: It’s easy for you to buy, and the recipient gets to choose what they want. But if it seems “impersonal”, the New at SU! design team is here to show you how to make gifting (and getting) a gift card EXCITING!

This Birthday Piggy is scooting in on a gift box that doesn’t even hint at what’s inside:

It’s a charming surprise when you open the box and a gift card pops up:

Don’t worry…it’s a simple box to make and the mechanism is a piece of (birthday) cake! Let me show you how:

This is my fancy project sketch and dimensions (bold lines are where you will cut). It may help as you follow along with the video tutorial (feel free to pause the video as you learn). You can get both pieces from one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock.

Once your box is assembled and decorated, simply attach your gift card to the front panel of the pop-up piece using a few glue dots!

I’ll list the supplies below and am happy to serve you if you are in the U.S. and don’t have a demonstrator. Now make sure you hop along to see the other clever gift card holders our International creative team are sharing…click a link below:

Blend with Friends: Class and Tutorial

Have you tried the new Blendabilities markers from Stampin’ Up!?  You’ll feel like an artist once you get your hands on these amazing new coloring tools and the best way to try them out will be at my Blend with Friends class, August 14th in Spanish Fork, Utah. There are two times to choose from: 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. so just let me know which you will be attending ASAP so I can prepare for you (and a friend).

At this class you will create a card, a “stained glass” box (show below), a gift bag and tag. You’ll also go home with a brand new BLENDED BLOOM stamp (included in the class fee).
