Today we celebrated my FIL's 82nd birthday :)
So for his card I wanted to try my hand at a paper bag card.
I have to tel you I will be making more of these fun cards.
What I like about this card is the bottom flap of the bag makes this neat pocket that fit his gift card in perfectly.
And what a perfect gift card to get him...but a Canadian Tire gift card ;)
Not only do you have a pocket for the gift card, but there is a pocket on the right for a tag.
That pocket is actually the top of the paper bag.
Here is a quick tutorial on how I made this easy card.
First thing I did was cut a smidgen...that's an actual word. I know it is because spell check didn't underline it with a squiggly line ;)
Now you don't have to cut the bit of the top off, I just wanted mine to be straight.
Then on the bottom flap of the bag, I added some two way tape to glue the top and bottom to make the pocket where the gift card is stored.
Then you fold the bag in half and decorate how you wish.
I recommend really burnishing the folds so it lays flat.
Here is a video I had made that shows a bit more on how I put this together and how the actual card works ;) Short video a bit over 3 minutes :)
My FIL has a sweet sense of humour. For the picture of him with his cake, I turned the cake around so we could see the numbers without them being backwards. When I got to the other end of the table, he switched the cakes.
I think he liked this number better, teehee.
Yes, he is pointing at me laughing. He loves to tease me ;)
Here is my great nephew and I so excited to see those cakes, teehee.
I hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)
