More Gift Card Holders

A very happy new year to you!  Hope you're off to a great start to 2013.  I'm afraid to type this for fear it will turn out to not be true, but I think we are all finally healthy (for the most part.)  One of the 5 of us has been sick since Thanksgiving.  I'm one exhausted Mama. From what I've seen from everyone's posts on Facebook, it's been a rough time for sickness all over the country. So here's to a HEALTHY new year.

In my last post I shared a gift card holder that I made following a step by step instruction from another blog.  I needed a few more card holders at the last minute and was trying to think what I could do and I came up with these.

I made each of these really big... I fit them to fill a 12x12 cutting mat on my Cricut.  I cut each image normal and then one flipped for the backside. I figured out that if you score the back side that it allows your image to stand up when opened and doesn't mess up your image on the front.  I just glued the top portion together to leave enough room to add the gift card and sentiment on the inside.  Because I didn't want my gift recipient to peek or really to know that there was anything inside the "Tag", I added velcro to keep it closed.  That worked out really really well.  The Reindeer one turned out to be my favorite as I made it stronger and with more decoration than the others and it can be used as a decoration next year.  These were a huge hit and I share them with you now because you can use any image and do them for any occasion. 

I really had fun with them. 

Thanks for looking and have a blessed craft-filled day.
