Hello! Happy Friday! I hope all my American readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. My family is spending the holiday with my husband’s family. We don’t see them often, so we’re all trying to enjoy our time together as much as we can.

Since it’s Friday, that means it’s time for a new Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge! This week our challenge is Gifts. Use a digital image to create a gift, or simply use a digital image depicting a gift. You don’t have to use a Sweet ‘n Sassy digital image, but we do enjoy seeing our participants use them (and you get the chance for extra perks if you do – see the Digi Challenge site for more details!). Link your card at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge site by midnight eastern time Thursday, November 29.

I wanted to make a holder for a gift card.  A few weeks ago I saw this one that looks like a gift box and decided to give it a try.  I made a few modifications to it – one, I kept the top of the “box” separate instead of hinging it to the bottom with a brad ; two,  I simplified the “bow” on the top of the box.  I printed the Cookie Mouse image several times so I could paper piece her bow and her present to match the gift card holder, and so I could pop up her head and paw so it looks like she’s really peeking around the present.  So, first I’ll show a photo of all the components:

This one shows how the insert slips inside the “bottom of the box”:

Here’s another view, showing the gift card:

And finally, here it is, all put together:

This turned out just a bit too tall to fit in an A2 envelope (for example, if you wanted to mail this to someone).  If I’d made the box shorter and wide enough so the gift card insert would go into it horizontally instead of vertically, it would work.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to see what the rest of the Design Team has created and give them some comment love.  Links to their blogs are in the left sidebar.  Then join us in our challenge this week!
