Gift Card holder

Here's another gift card holder I made this year.  I used it for cards from a local coffee shop.  I used acetate embossed with a swirly pattern for the inside, card holder part...pretty cute!

Gift Card Holders for Christmas

I made some changes to my original Christmas stocking gift card holder because the recipient of the original thought it was a Christmas ornament and hung it on the tree!  It would have been a shame if she never found the gift card inside.  I added a "Pull Here" tab and a ribbon to dress it up and I like the results.  I switched out the little ornament to favorites of the two little guys I gave these to.  

The snowflake die I used is from The Cat's Pajamas!  It's Snowflake Cutups (Die 010)

Hero Arts Tutorial

Uh oh...I'm in trouble.  I found this tutorial and LOVED it!!  Problem is to reproduce it, I'm going to need a  Silhouette machine and I don't have room for anymore machines!  I have to admit, this is amazing.  The video includes a very good lesson on how to blend with Copics, too.  Enjoy!!!

Gift Card Holders for Christmas

I'm beginning to really love gift card holders.  There are so many things you can make that can incorporate a gift card.  I was at a local craft fair with a friend and we saw some adorable little stocking gift card holders in school colors that she loved.  It was disappointing that the colors she needed weren't among those for sale so I decided to see what I could come up with.  I started searching on line and found an adorable idea on Kelly Acheson's blog.  It inspired me and this is what I came up with.
