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.
