Holiday Gift Card Holders

Hi Everyone!
I don't have a 'card' to share with you today ... instead, I'm working
on items for a show coming up on the 21st and another show in November.
Today I'm creating Gift Card Holders  ...

With the holidays right around the corner (oh! smack my mouth!)
there are those folks who you just can't seem to come up
with a gift idea for so, if you're anything like me, you'll turn to giving a gift card!  
And, of course, you'll  need a pretty 'holder' to put it in.
How about one of these?

 You can create TWO gift card holders from ONE sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.

CARD SIZE:   8 1/2 x 5
SCORE AT:  3 1/2" and 7"
Fold and decorate
Front Flap and Card Holding Flap decorative panels:  3 1/4 x 5 and 1 1/4 x 5
Inside card holding panel is attached at each end
with narrow double sided tape to create a 'pocket' for the gift card.

Once completed, I package with a 5 1/8 x 3 5/8 envelope inside
a 4x6 zip topped bag (bags typically found in the candy making isle
of your local crafting store).

 These are quick, easy and great sellers at the shows!
I also have several made up for birthdays which are decorated in everyday designs.

Well, that's all I have for you today.

Decorating the 16 tissue box covers I have sitting here naked & waiting!  LOL



Onward to PHASE 3 ... pretty decorations & packaging!

Challenges to share in:
 Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - More than One Fold
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Anything Goes with Die Cuts

Thanks for stopping by today
and I hope you find inspiration from my creations.

Till next time and as always . . .

Oh, my word, so busy! But what a wonderful craft space you have for these jumbo-size projects. I love the card with pocket idea and do those often when I send gift cards. These are decorated up so cute with the awesome papers and dies. And look at all those tissue boxes! I love those so much and they're such a useful gift. Totally need to make some of those. I've had the directions forever, and they're really so easy. Can't wait to see how you finish these off. Fantastic!
