My Time To Create Challenge

This week the theme for Lauren's My Time To Create TEMPLATE challenge is to use a back to school theme.

I had a busy week and did not get a chance to make something new using this fun theme. But I did use the Milk Maid Timeless Template not too long ago to make a quick gift card holder.

It was the night before I was meeting a friend for lunch and had gift cards for her daughters for their birthday. I wanted something cool to put it in so off I went to print the template and get crackin. Of course it was late (I know no excuses) so I didn't have much time and decided to keep it really simple.

Sorry my picture is not that great, remember I was in a rush with this one. Normally I would take alot more time with something like this. But I thought it was fun to post because it shows how simple these templates can be. Piece them together had some pattern paper and an embellishment and you have something cool to present your gift in. I didn't use the milk maid holder because I had 2 gift cards for 2 girls so I just went with the containers.

So be sure to hop on over to the other gals on the DT as I am sure they followed the rules and did something super awesome with the Back To School theme!

This just goes to show that simple is sometimes a GREAT thing! These turned out super cute, especially considering your limited time. I'm so jealous!! LOL I'm sure the girls loved their gift card holders :O) What a great idea.
