creating: a fun way to gift green backs

Gifts cards are a wonderful thing - except when you leave purchasing them until the last minute and you can't find one in the amount you want for the store you want and it's T-minus 1.5 hours until 75% of your children depart for their friend's birthday party.

I could have simply tucked some bills in a card, but came up with this idea instead (and thank the Creator for the inspiration ;) and providing the picture frame at the garage sale we were at this morning):
 Here's what you need...

(I measured the inset of the picture frame and sized a box in Publisher to the exact dimensions. Then I cut and pasted the logo from the website and added the text. Print, cut, done.)

Insert gift message. Insert gift o' green.


I also whipped up a simple bag from red homespun cloth I had on hand, but didn't get a picture of the final presentation since I finished as Brie, Reese and Luke were heading out the door. I'm hoping that, at some point, God will give me the ability to plan much further ahead than is my current pattern.

cute idea and really great if the child was maybe saving for a bigger toy that was at a different store. Great idea!

Fabulous idea! They get a picture frame and money for future spending. Cute presentation!
