Cool Holder thingy

Ok I had to mail a few things today and I needed to make a little folder of sorts to put some pictures and stuff in, so I got my scorpal out and made two scores & walla I had my folder.  So I needed to make/alter a gift for someone & I don't really have time to do that right now, so I decided to make another folder, dress it up pretty and make a note set to go inside.  
I stamped that big flourish stamp in versamark & then put clear embossing powder over it, got my handy dandy heat gun & heat set the powder.  In real life this technique looks really cool & makes your project look so yummy!  That was the fancy part of this gift, the rest is easy peasy, just simple stamping.  I did put some red sticky tape under the ribbon so that when the folder opens the ribbon doesn't fall out.
I think I am going to make a ton of these for Christmas presents.  The cards I put inside are super simple post office friendly cards, only one stamp needed.
