May Arts & Scor-Pal Mini backpack gift card holder

HELLO paper and ribbon lovers!
The May Arts Ribbonistas and Scor-Pal team are getting together for a massive inspiration hop.
You should have hop to my blog from Jennie Harper's blog.  Need a hop list?  Then head on over to the May Arts blog and check it all out.
Alright everyone, here's what I got for you.

A gift card holder/card in a little paper backpack
Tomorrow will be the last day of this school year for my babies.  I have listen to the many teachers online and decided to go the gift card route.  BUT the scrapper in me had to make something.  So here is a cute little way to give your gift card.

The Backpack

So super cute!! I think gift cards get a bad rap because we think they're unpersonal or no fun to receive. Obviously your teachers won't be able to think that. Pinning your other post right now
