Gift Giving Ideas {winner & a giveaway}

Hey there May Arts blog readers. It’s Latrice and I’m here to share a video with you on how to create a fun card set and altered can for gift giving. I’m already thinking about end of the school year and teacher gifts. I know “WHAT!” When I got my Creative Imaginations goodies for this blog week I let it sit on my desk until something good popped into my head. I wasn’t sure whether to use it for a scrapbook page, altered project or cards. I think I walked by it so many times trying to think of something. Then I got it! Here is what I came up with.

Then I thought I could do more and I have tons of baby formula cans sitting around waiting for fun projects. This is what made from that can.

The video is kind of long, but lots of good information. Please don’t forget to leave a comment below this post to be entered into our prize drawings for this week. I love reading the comments here. Also please check me out over on my blog and my You tube channels. Feel free to follow me.

Enjoy today’s video!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember to comment and to check out what the CI design team has come up with. Talk about a talented group.
