Inside of a card, before you put in the envelope you spinning center piece, so who get a card see center piece spinning when opened." ~Yumi

Next, we love this gift card idea from Keri. What a gorgeous idea using just two tags and Times Nouveau. Amazing!

"With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to come up with an inexpensive, but still personal way to give a gift card.

It’s as easy as taking to 2 Graphic 45 Tags and adhering them one on top of each other by just gluing the edges. This forms a little pocket that is just the right size for a gift card!

Now all you have to do it decorate it however you want!"~Keri
