January Challenge - Sara L

This wonderful project for our January "NEW" challenge is from Sara L...

Sara's words:
Here is my altered Starbucks Coffee sleeve turned into a gift card holder!

This is a NEW technique that I am trying out. I had a lot of fun playing around with this and also love that it is a green project! I drink copious amounts of coffee and have been collecting the sleeves for weeks now so that I can do a few fun things with them and I have tons of them!

I used all scrap paper and things that I had in my stash! I didn't have to go out and buy anything at all (well except for the coffee and gift card) to make this with and I love how it came out!

What better way to give someone a Starbucks gift card than with a handmade themed gift card holder, all while being green!

The January Challenge is to do a NEW project. This can be a layout, card, or any kind of project having to do with NEW. You may want to use the word new in your title, this could be about a new year's resolution - or could be a new technique or tool you used to complete your project.
