Paint Can Gift Card Holder

March 16th, 2010

Hi there!  I had hoped to post this morning (getting back to more consistent blogging) but I was just running too late for paint-can-tag-jami-10-custom.jpgwork.  In my office we celebrate birthdays with lunch of the birthday girl’s choice, cake and a gift card.  Everyone puts money in for each birthday and we rotate who’s responsible to buy the gift card.  Today it was my turn to bring in the gift card and the birthday girl asked for Costco – super easy.  Of course I wanted to wrap it in some fun and special way….so why on earth did I wait till this morning to do that?  D’oh!

I had a few of these fun little clear paint cans on hand (I got them a long time ago at eclectic Paperie but I don’t see them on the site now) and they are really easy and fairly quick to decorate.  I used some SU Pink Flamingo dp along with various ribbons.  My largest circle nestie was the perfect size to cover the top of the lid and I used the Blossom nesties for the tag.

Sorry for the bad photo, but I was snapping these as I was running out the door to work.  At least you can get the general idea.  paint-can-for-roxie-march-10-jami-custom.jpgDo you have any of these clear cans sitting around?  If so I’d suggest you get one out and get it all decorated up for a birthday or Mother’s Day and have it ready to go the next time you give a gift card for a present.  Having it ready ahead of time?  Wouldn’t that be amazing????  LOL!

I have two goals this week – things I want to do every day Monday through Friday:

1. create and blog something – anything.

2. Walk Tessa one mile.

So far I am on track. Now let’s see what Wednesday brings. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.  See you tomorrow, Lord willing.
