Pink $1,000,000.00l Giftcard idea! Fake of course!

Hey everyone! I've been having so much fun sewing and
creating! I wanted to show you this craft in case you didn't see it last year...wink wink!
This is what I did for all the cousins and nieces and nephews. All 18 of them!
I bought small canning jars (of course I had hundreds of the large size but no small ones!)
bought inexpensive fake snow, felt for the Santa hats and a little fake fur.
Next I made on my computer fake $ 1,000,000.00 gift cards and had the real gift cards to Walmart or wherever taped on the other side. I also found the cute gingerbread graphics on
a site that I show you below. I used the puncher to punch some cute little pink snowflakes and
to glue them closed on one side. Next I glued a white pom pom to the top of the hat to finish it off.
Of course this has to be Pink Saturday! How fun
to play along with all the other sites that are celebrating.
Be sure to visit Beverly @ HOWSWEETTHESOUND
I can't tell you how cute these turned out in real life.
You could always do traditional red and white and green as well.
My fake million dollar gift cards were just typed no special graphics on them.
The little ones just loved these. The teenagers wished they were real!
Hahahaha....you and me both!
This year I'm making fake stimulus gift cards! you know to help with the economy!
