Gift card holders a la Cambria!

I made these little gift card holders as a thank you for Carter's wonderful preschool teachers. He finished up his first year at the end of June - I'm sad, both because he seems to already miss his friends, and more selfishly because I no longer have toddler-free stamping time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings!! Boo hoo! I had bookmarked a fun tutorial for gift card holders on Cambria's blog over a year ago, and it was perfect for this - very cute and so easy to put together (because of course, being the Queen Procrastinator that I am, I waited to make these until the morning of his last day while he was at school...!)! This cute little bookworm monkey is from a Stampendous clear set called School for Changito that I found at Archiver's. I also love the "thank you for being my teacher" sentiment that came with the set. On the inside I put Starbucks gift cards, something that was on both teachers' "wish lists". One of the teachers ONLY listed Starbucks Frappucino as something she likes, so I'm guessing she has more of it now than she knows what to do with... :-) It is HOT here today, so actually, I could go for a frozen frappucino about now. My favorite is mocha frappucino with a shot of raspberry... yummm! :-) I hope you're enjoying your weekend - thanks for stopping by today!
