Back in the Saddle with Strawberries

Hello there Blogland!  Sorry for the long absence.  Our family went on vacation to California and although I retuned home and starting crafting right away, it's taken me some time to get back into the swing of blogging.  But here I am on this very sunny Tuesday, ready for my first post in over a month.  So let's get right to it.

This project is one of my favorite gifts to give and I made this explosion box gift card holder for my dear friend Kelli's birthday.  She has a thing for strawberries so I based the theme of the box on this cheery fruit.  I love the impact that the mechanics of box makes but it's even better when you see the four gift cards.  Now who wouldn't want four gift cards, right?!  Four gift cards takes this present over the top, but if you don't want to give someone four gift cards, you can fill some of the pockets with tags instead.

Also, I was asked about instructions to my last post (coloring the polar bear with Distress Inks) so here's a link that might be helpful.

Glad to be back and check in again soon - I have lots more in store for the rest of the week.
