Tie It On! Challenge #11

Hi everyone! It's challenge time over at My Craft Spot. This weeks challenge *tie it on*. Let's add some ribbon or twine to your project. The winner from this weeks challenge will win 3 colors of beautiful crinkle ribbon-YOU PICK the colors. Awesome prize. Check out the inspiration for this weeks challenge over at My Craft Spot and be sure to like up your finished project. :)

I needed some gift card holders for all of my end of year thank you cards. I sewed a little pocket to the front of my card, to hold the gift card-easy! A seafood restaurant themed gift needed a little crab *holding* the card. Perfect!
I wrapped the caribbean colored twine and attached the tag
stamped with the Enjoy! sentiment from the
Sweet Sentiments set #2. I added a little stitching around
the edge and dusted the edges with a little chalk ink. I sewed
the pocket on to the front of the card before I attached the top
layer to the card base-leaving a nice clean look to the inside
of the card as well. This is an easy design to change for any
theme. The twine adds the cutest touch. Love it!
