Harvesting Memories Blog Hop

Welcome to Harvesting Memories Blog Hop today, hosted by Lisa at Honeybearz Designs. That is our first stop on the blog, so you can hop over there to start. 
Lisa asked us to make something Harvest/ Autumn themed, soooo....
For my project, I used the video tutorial challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club, you can click HERE to see the challenge and for the card instructions.

Here are Twisted Gift Holder Cards that I made for each of the kiddos' teachers. Inside is a Panera Gift card and a little note saying, 
"Thanks for all you do. I am so happy you are my teacher. Here is a bagel and coffee on me.... ( I like chocolate milk though!)"  Sam (Emily or Jessica)
 I was able to make all three card folds in 5 min and then the fun starts... embellishing!!!  For this card, the sentiment was embossed using white powder and heating gun. Also used was 3D sticker embellishment and scallop/circle punches. I think this on is my favorite and will definitely be going to my son's teacher. She has been just wonderful with him.

Here are the other two...

Teachers make many memories, and we are blessed that we have three kind and caring teachers this year. 
 Thank you so much for hopping over. Your next stop is Pam.  Until next time!!!
