Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder

Are you having a fabulous week?  I am.  I worked Monday through Wednesday, so now I have a few days off!  I'm so excited.  I've been relaxing today and doing a few things around the house while the kids are at school.

I love the Cricut Lite Love You A Latte cartridge (maybe because I love coffee so much).  When I was looking at the images, I got inspired to make a gift card holder using the to go cup cut.  It's really a very simple project and you could apply the same technique to many different shapes to make the perfect gift card holder for any occasion.

I have a video below walking you through the entire process, but I'll give you a quick run-down on the recipe.
