Christmas Gift Card Holder

This year I have a LOT of gift cards to give to the people I'm shopping for.  It makes me a little sad that my nieces and nephews have grown up so much that they want gift cards instead of presents. Oh well.... I saw a blog post by Paul - which you can see HERE.  He made a treat holder.  I really liked the look of it and wanted to try it but I made mine to hold a gift card instead of a treat.  He has easy step by step instructions on an older post that you can see over here.   If I can follow them, then anyone can follow them!  LOL.

So here's what my first attempt looks like:

The only alteration I made to his instructions was instead of an oval punch,  I just cut a slit using my paper trimmer. So that way I could put in a gift card instead of a treat.

I plan to add something on the inside to sign our names and wish him a Merry Christmas but other than that this project is done. It was really easy and I plan to make at least a few more of them. 

Pattern Paper is My Minds Eye Holiday Glitter Book
The Snowflake is from Tags, Bags Boxes & More 2 cartridge, page 47
The gem in the center of the snowflake is from Recollections
I used Stickles Glitter Glue
I inked all the edges with Color Box ink. 

Thanks so much for taking a look. 
Hope your Christmas season is off to a wonderful start. 

God bless.
