Mission: Possible!

My very good friend Beth White has served as the PTO President for our local middle school for the past three years.  During that time, she has asked me to create several thank-you gift items to give to the local business partners and volunteers who have so graciously donated their time and money to the school.  This year, Beth wanted to express her thanks to her fellow PTO board members at their final meeting of the year. 

My mission:  create a beautiful thank-you item that could not only function as a very special heartfelt gift, but also could serve as a gift-card holder.  Below are two photos of what I came up with.

You’ll notice that I slipped the gift card underneath the bow.  Once the recipient removes the gift card, they can replace it with a photograph and then hang the board by the ribbon or place it on a plate stand.  I have a feeling my daughters and I are going to spend some rainy summer days creating lots of these in different sizes and styles!
