Gift Card on CHRISTmas Card

Hi Bloggers - well, this was not TOTALLY my idea - I lifted the TP gift card idea from Karen Letchworth's posting at The Kraft Journal and then expanded it to have a hidden message, gift card, and CHRISTmas card all-in-one. I am liking this idea - it works perfect for a gift and card combination, don't ya think?  I will be making more! :)

Thank you for stopping by today

Be blessed!

Empty Toilet Paper Roll
White First Aid Tape to close the bottom of the TP roll
