August ScrapbookSteals Blog Hop

Time for a little Christmas in ..... August?
Well I think it is, or at least that was my first thought when I received my package of 7 Gypsies Vintage ATC for this month's ScrapbookSteal.com Blog Hop.

When I opened up my 7 Gypsies product the colors jumped right out at me. Sure I could take any of these cute tabs and pockets and add them in to any scrapbook I have but I thought it would be fun to do something a little different.

I grabbed a pocket, some ribbon, and a few other craft supplies and set about making a Christmas gift card pocket.

Rub on a little stamp ink to fade the edges, spray a touch of glitter for shine and tie it all off with a bow (or three).

The pocket holds a regular gift card with a little extra room and the side tag can be used to add a TO label later when I decide who gets this awesome creation!
