September Angel Art Blog Hop

 It's time again for the Paper Wings Angel Art Blog Hop!! This month's theme is "Anything But a Card". With the holidays fast approaching I am trying to think of gift giving ideas, so I created a cute little gift card holder with an added surprise!! This one is Friendship themed, but think of the possibilities for the holidays!!
I started with one of those little tin gift card holders from the craft store, but jazzed it all up with some Angel Company stamps, and card stock.  I used "Cupcake Cuties" and "Fibi and Lilly" stamp sets for this project.

This is what it looks like with the belly band off, and this is what is waiting inside, I used black flocking powder on the little bee, so he is all fuzzy, so cute!
When you pull it open it is a sweet little accordion album with spots for photos, and a pocket at the end for a gift card! I used this project for my hostess group's project this month, they all loved it!  This project is so fun and quick to make, perfect for the up coming holiday season, I can't wait to try it with "Jingle Jolly"  for Christmas!!
Please be sure to stop by all the other participating Angels and see their inspiring ideas. I am sure that they would love it if you left a comment too!!
