Gift Giving.....

You know when you are giving your friend/relative a gift voucher or money and it seems a bit common to just hand it to them or put it inside a card to fall out then they open the card? I like to make a small pouch or box for the voucher or cash as this shows a bit more thought.

Over at Unstampabelles, there is a challenge currently running for June whereby you are asked to make a male card, page, tag, object, gift...... WITHOUT using STAMPS! I had just received a parcel of papers and bits from the UK containing amid other things some decoupage sheets that just popped out - no fussy cutting! As they were for a male, I immediately started to think about how I could use them for the challenge.

I used my SU gift pouch die set to make the pouch and then added some extra decoration. It was quick, easy and came out well. The shark is the third layer!

Nice and sparkly!

You can tuck the cash down to hide it or leave it poking out the top. I borrowed this note from hubby - he was loath to hand it over - and just tucked it into the top. For those who don't know what our currency looks like - Wikipedia has some info and you can guess the note's denomination (and perhaps understand why hubby was loath to hand it over, even for a few minutes)!

You can enter your own interpretation for the Unstampabelles Challenge

#69: To the men in our lives..... 
TWIST add an animal

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Great Impressions:  masculine
Allsorts: use 2 dies at least - the gift bag is a die as is the sentiment; plus the deco line of circles
