Free Gift Card...Card!

Gift cards have become extremely popular over the years.  But how do you give them to someone?  Do you just hand them over, buy a card to throw them in?  Well, here’s an easy and inexpensive way for you to customize your gift to make it even more special.
This can be done for any occasion in our builder. I chose a 5”x7” flat card for this project. The one I used is actually a free template. Open your card in the builder and design how you wish. Club members can use their Print From Home feature to have a high resolution .jpg sent to your email.  I chose to print just the front of mine at home to save time.  Once printed, you can add buttons, ribbons, glitter, whatever you may have on hand.  I used Helmar 450 glue to add my emebelishments. I then cut a slit for my card and then backed the entire card on a piece of cardstock.  You can then put into an envelope or add a string to hang on the tree. When that special someone comes over, have them grab a gift card of their choosing from your tree!  Handmade personalized cards are simple using MiDesign@Michaels™!

What fun projects can you make today?
