Hi there, this is what you get when you start out trying to give someone a simple gift and your mind runs away with you, lol!! I have a Starbucks Card for a dear friend of mine and while I was getting it, my gaze wandered over the cardboard cozy holders that you get at both Starbucks and I found out later, Panera Bread. At first I was going to decorate one of the cozy holders and put the gift card inside but then it grew into a book :-) For the decoration I settled on the wonderful Scripture Sets (Set 1, Set 2, Set 3, Set 4 and Series 1) from Our Daily Bread Designs. Below you can see the brown from my gift card peeking out from the first page.
To finish up, I took one of the cozies for a cover. I hid the Panera logo and added a ribbon just to make it a little bit dressy! It was not a complicated project at all and once done I was a little bit proud of my recycling effort. I hope my friend likes it.
