[St Patrick's Day] Lucky No. 7
Is there a number luckier than seven?
How about when you add it to eleven? I'm not talking eighteen. I'm talking 7-eleven! Nothing is luckier than that. Especially when it involves Slurpees!
And a gift card.
My boy is in California. He is a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is riding his bike in the California heat. All day long. This just might be the perfect way for him to stay cool this summer. I'm thinking every high school and college student I know could put this to good use. Cut two pieces of white card stock to measure 5 3/4 inches square. Measure in 1 1/4 inches from one of the sides and fold. Repeat with the other piece. This little flap will eventually make the pocket for the gift card. Click here for the "Lucky no. 7" printable. Cut out the card front and glue it to one of the card stock pieces. Line up the card stock so the flaps meet in the middle. Glue carefully around the sides and the back of the flap. Leave the front open. That's where the gift card slides in! I used some green patterned paper to embellish the pocket and the back of the card. I wanted to leave the inside of my card white so I could write a little letter. But whatever tickles your fancy. Go crazy if you want. Have fun.
Write a sentiment or two. Send your love. Then slip the gift card into the pocket. Slide the card into an envelope and send that fun-mail on it's way!
Happy St Patrick's Day!
