Matchbook Gift Card Holder...I'm in Love!

Oh, how I love my google reader and the awesome projects I come across while on there. While blurfing the other night I came across this fabulous tutorial from Andrea Walford for a Matchbook gift card holder. I'm in love with this tutorial, it's so darn cute!

My boss had asked me to make something like this down the road for her brother who loves coffee and when I saw this tutorial I knew I had to try it. I twas so easy and perfect I made 2!! I think it turned out well and very masculine, I think it would be a perfect gift to make up a few of these and package them up nicely.

I tried to keep it fairly simple, but added some Crystal Effects to the middle coffee mug to give it a little dimension. On the inside I decided to do some masking to stack the coffee cups and may go back and small sentiment somewhere saying "Happy Birthday".
