Even a $10 gift can get us 3 movies Upon receiving such a gift I thought about a fun way to GIVE a gift like that, and make it all the more special.
So this recent gift card (as seen here) being my inspiration point-here we go!
My newest Take Long Tote © template is the PERFECT presentation for a movie night at home!
Being inspired by the gift card packaging, I designed my front & back pockets to look just like a popcorn box! Of course both my pockets each hold a bag of microwave popcorn! You each need your own bag Heck they are only 110 calories, so eat up! The yellow filler adds to the design a bit.
Now to decorate my “popcorn box” pockets-I added strips of poppy cardstock, and made a scallop border.
I wanted to add to the popcorn pockets so-I did!
I used the stars from the 2008 Holiday Celebrations and cut them out. the “party time” is from Limitless Labels. I also used these for my candy bars (keep reading).
Now the close up-
I used the solid flower from the Remember set, and embossed it with white EP to make is look like a piece of popcorn! I then embossed a spare piece of cardstock, punched out a 3/4 circle, and covered a dimensional for the popcorn center-for a more realistic look! This was a proud moment for me! LOL! I was pretty happy with the outcome! From a flower to a piece of popcorn
Now a view from the side :
Drumroll…………opening it up-
Inside we have a gift card to the movies or video store, and 2 wrapped candy bars to match.
You can’t “go to” the movies without popcorn and candy bars right?
Here is a close up of my candy bars-
I just created a cute wrapper for them. Nothing fancy.
