Christmas Gift Card Holder

Busy, busy, busy….

Yep!  You and me both.   I had three classes this week but I did get my Christmas cards addressed!  Now to remember to put them in the mail!  🙂

003 004On Sunday we had our team Holiday Party.  Make-n-Takes, food and a gift exchange.  It’s always fun to see the gifts, especially the homemade ones.  I like to try to come up with something wonderful but this year time and imagination weren’t on my side.  I bought the ever-popular Starbucks Gift Card.  Since my gift was so lame I had to come up with a cute idea for the packaging.  I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die.  I will admit that I CASEd the design but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!

Instead of folding and adhering all the sides to make an actual envelope I left one side open then slipped the gift card in with a ribbon wrapped around it to make it easier to pull out.  Clever idea.  I wish I knew who to give the credit to.  Hmmm…..

008Of course I couldn’t just give the gift card as is.  I needed to wrap it so I came up with this simple and fun idea using the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags.  Love those things!  To jazz it up I added a banner, a label and the GORGEOUS new White Jute Ribbon that will be in the new Occasions Catalog in January.  This ribbon is beautiful and I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

Now, it’s time to get ready to hit the mall.  YIKES!  I hate to do it at this late date but when you’re behind in your shopping…….

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
