However, Jay always takes a gift card to a local restaurant for the ladies in his office, as well as gift cards for the guys in his department. And I have been making the cards, boxes, etc. for years, so I had to ignore my last project until after the new year comment from down below and get these done today!
Box is 2-3/4" x 4" x1" and made using my Scor-Pal and has an insert like the one from this previous post from November 20, 2010.
Instructions to make any size box you'd like may be found here: Making Boxes November 21, 2010
Card is a traditional A2 size, 4.25" x 5.5"
Ink: Vivid! Brick, Olive, Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Desert Sand
Paper: Pre-made Robins' Eggs card base by Memory Box, GKD Lipstick Red, Ivory
Patterned paper: Echo Park
Other; Nestabilites Labels 10 and Ribbon Banners, Aqua Surf mini brads by StarlitStudio, last of my Riding Hood Red ribbon by SU!, Corner rounder, Dauber, Dimensional foam
No reinventing the wheel here, just a slightly different take on the layout down below. There are gift card sleeves inside that the gift cards slide into. Nice and compact, the guys don't ooh and ahh like the ladies do over the cute boxes, LOL!
