Cute Gift Card Holder DIY

by Jillian Leslie on

Gift card holder DIY | CatchMyParty.com

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.

My first goal was to incorporate this rule: candy + gift card = awesome! Then I wanted to make sure it was easy to do, cute and festive, and inexpensive.

Recipes and Tips for Throwing a Fantastic July 4th!

by Jillian Leslie on

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.

If you see my blog posts or read my Facebook and Twitter posts, you know I'm a huge fan of creative cakes. I think if you're going to splurge on one item for your party in terms of money or time, a cake is a great way to go.

I've noticed some new cake trends (in addition to all the beautiful rainbow cakes and ruffle cakes) on our main site that I wanted to share. Take a look (and click on the photo to see what party it's from)...
