Every year at the holidays, I give gift cards to my daughter's teachers and a few other people in our community. I know they appreciate them, but to me, the gift cards always feels a little impersonal. That's why I was excited when Target asked me to come up with a gift card holder DIY to find a way to make giving a Target GiftCard® more meaningful.

Virginie, from That Cute Little Cake with a "sweet" way to decorate your Valentine's Day cake. How adorable is this!
I saw a tutorial on Corrina Wraps on how to make washi tape twist ties and had to try it. Turns they are super easy, you can finish them in minutes, and what a great way to tie up gift and favors. I will definitely be doing this in the future.
TIP 1 -- I had to start with the most mouth-watering dish... pulled pork sandwiches with Asian slaw. Since our grill still isn't hooked up, I wanted to come up with an alternative to typical July 4th BBQ food that was equally fun and equally delicious. That's why I thought of pulled pork! Who doesn't like pulled pork?! :)
You will find the recipes at the end of the post. The pork and slaw are both very easy to make, but the pork does take 6-8 hours to cook, so plan ahead if you're considering it.
