It's My B-Day and I'll Quill if I want to Blog Hop!




Welcome to the It's My B-Day and I Quill if I want to Blog Hop!!

Happy Birthday to our Blog host Linda, today is her Birthday and guess what?? Mine is tomorrow!! Birthdays Rock!


So thank you for hopping on over! If you hopped over here from Tracey's blog  Quilly Nilly then you are in the right place! If not stop on over to Linda's My Quilling Nest and start hopping from the start! You don't want to miss any of the super awesome projects and fun blog candy give-a-ways!!

For my project today I made a cute gift card holder mini purse!

Solid paper cut at 9 X3 3/4
Pattern Paper cut at 8 3/4 X 3 1/2


Adhere pattern paper to solid.
Score paper at 2 3/4, 3 1/4, 6 1/4 and 6 3/4


Bend all the score lines.


Add strip of tape to the longer side (bottom)


Using a glue dot adhere your gift card


 Add a strip of tape to the top score for ribbon. I cut my ribbon at 8" you can make it longer, I made mine short


Fold the bottom up over the gift card and add tape to the top.


Now you can add your embellishments:




Quilled pieces provided by Linda!


I hope you enjoyed my project today!
