French Fry Gift Card Holder

Hi there! I thought I would do a quick post for the Monday Simon Says Stamp Treat Challenge. It's super simple but I thought it would be a nice idea for those who need a quick and clever treat idea. Here it is...
I was going to make little pockets for the gift cards for the inside of the card but when I went through the drive thru to purchase the gift cards, the cashier said they ran out of the sleeves for the gift cards and gave me these instead. What a lovely idea! All the work was done for me already, just a bit of personalization and it was all done. I used Simon Says Stamp Trick or Treat stamp/die set for the speech bubble and band of goo. The band of goo was stamped with Studio Calico Purple Rain and I used an ink blending tool and Lime Light for the bottom portion of the band. The purple goo got a quick wash of clear Wink of Stella. The names were stamped with Lawn Fawn Violet's ABCs.  This might not be "Challenge Worthy", but I hope it helps those who need a cute gift in a pinch. I have a really good treat box for my son's class that's almost ready. Stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Ingenious! Funny how things just work out. I'm sure they will love their special treats.

  2. Wow! What an absolutely fabulous idea! Way to make lemonade out of lemons...or in this case, gift card holders out of fry boxes! And I really love the supplies and colors you used. The name bubbles especially look amazing against the bright red boxes. You've inspired me to look at my fast food wrappers with more respect. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
