Tis the Season Gift Card Holder

Today over on Catherine & Cathy Create, the new monthly challenge is Tis the Season, which means anything Christmas! Sometimes it is difficult to find the perfect gift for someone, so you get a gift card to their favorite store. Then, you have to package the gift card to make it extra special! So, I made a gift card holder using the Circle Card Thinlit Die.

For this gift card color, I wanted to use traditional red and green. So I reached for the Season of Style Designer Series Paper. The Old Olive polka dots are so much fun! Then, I used some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine to help keep the holder closed. The Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set has lots of fun Christmas gift phrases that I used for this project!

To make the gift card holder, I cut the Circle Card Thinlit with an extra flap (just bring the end over top of the die). Then, I cut 1/4" off of each end of the card. The pockets are made using an envelope. Just seal the envelope, fold it in half, and cut a 1/2" off the non-fold end. I just used a small piece of sticky strip to hold the pockets together in the middle and to hold them to the card in the front and back.

The tabs on the cards are cut using the banner die that is included with the Circle Card Thinlit Die. The "Open Me" card is perfect for writing a message to the recipient! The "For You" card is for the gift card, which is held in place with some Baker's Twine. I love how this gift card holder turned out!
