PTI February 2012 Blog Hop

I got my new Papertrey Ink (PTI) order in the mail this week.  Included in that order was a TON of new fun interactive dies they call, "Movers & Shakers", so when today's February Blog Hop came out asking us to get interactive, I was happy to give these new dies a test run.

Zipper Die being put to use
 I'm not going to lie.  I have lost sleep waiting for these sweet babies to arrive in the mail.  I was at work when they arrived and I was hoping for a sudden unexpected stomach ache that could send me straight home so I could play with my new toys...... *un*fortunately that didn't happen....none the less, I have finally made some free time to play with them.  They are so much fun!  This one is extra special because.......

Just pull the paper zipper

It doubles as a gift card holder that will entitle the recipient to a nice big delicious cup of latte.  Do you see the fun in this gift card?

A gift card is hidden safely inside.
You just RIP open the fun paper zipper and a gift card comes falling out.  FUN FUN FUN.  The girls in my stamp class are sure to LOVE this one!
