Hello there! Here's the final project that you'll be able to make with this month's CLASS OF THE MONTH:B.Y.O.P.*, and I think it's my favorite:) I've been looking for a template like this for awhile but couldn't find one, so I came up with my own. Unfortunately I don't really have any measurements for you, but I'll share some photos of the process. I started with a Very Vanilla base, and it takes pretty much a full sheet.

For the template, I started with a piece of SU! Grid Paper and mapped out a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" rectangle in the center and worked out from there. I angled the 2 bottom corners and used the grid lines to make this shape. You'll get this template included with the purchase of the Class or Kit.

I ran the sides through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand and added 2 Sweet Dreams Buttons with Glue Dots. I finished it off with a sweet bow made with Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon. I attached the bow with Glue Dots as well.

I used the gift card as a guide to stamp the sentiment, in Sahara Sand ink as well. I attached the gift card with Glue Dots and folded on the score lines. I added a pair of velcro dots(not very evenly) to close it.

I was really happy with how this turned out and can't wait to have an occasion to make one:) Remember, the deadline to order this class or kit is April 10th. Email me at if you're interested:)

Here's the project me & my little buddy worked on yesterday. I needed to make some to take to church Sunday, otherwise I wouldn't have tackled it. It was torture making these as I couldn't eat any of them:( My hubby and me are in the middle of a Whole 30 Challenge~nothing but whole foods for 30 days. No gluten, no grains, no dairy, no alcohol & no sugar for 30 days! They're not kidding when they say challenge! I also have a huge bowl of Easter candy that I haven't been able to get into:( It's like a house of horrors around here! Oh well, I'm surprised of the will power I've had and only 2 more weeks to go! It helps that we're going to Florida in 2 weeks and I need to wear a swimsuit:) Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed and happy Easter tomorrow:)


  1. I just found this on Pinterest and I think it's so cute! Great baby gift card idea.
