Christmas Gift Card Holder


This is NOT the project I had planned; I actually sat down to make a gift tag or a mini note card.   But I came across this half made gift card holder I had started last year and decided to finish it.  It's a super cute gift card holder but I just thought it lacked something.  So in an effort to dress it up, I decided to use Mini Christmas Tree from Your Next Stamp's November release and created a mini tag/charm for it. Since it is hanging from string and not glued down you could flip it over to write the recipients name on the back too.   Oh and for those of you wondering....the template I used is from Papertrey Ink's Timeless Templates by Lauren Meader (Cash or Charge).  Here you can see it open.



You do not even want to know how long it took me to finish this project!!!   LOL
Sadly, my mojo has left me :(  I'm certain it ran away after I made my huge list of Christmas Things To Do.  Hopefully after knocking some of those things off my list this weekend it will return.   Keep your fingers crossed.  :)  


Thanks for stopping by!
Wendy

I think this is cute Wendy! Especially for a male, or for those that love the simple and clean look, like myself. The little tree is adorable and great idea to make it into a charm. Quit being so hard on yourself!!!

Have a great weekend,

Oh my gosh, SUPER cute! I love that the tree can spin and you can write on the back. I just picked up a couple gift cards for Christmas gifts...so I need to get crackin' on making gift card holders, too!

...cuz, I don't know, doesn't feel right to NOT paper craft a gift card, lol!

Great project, even if you didn't mean to do it! LOL! The little tree on the tag is a great idea...it's the whole gift in one little package. Very nice.

Love the greens & trees belong to my list of favourite images - Christmas trees & snowflakes I seem to collect somehow! Love the way this matches the green of your blog design & the pink bits too but it was the green that caught my eye.

Take care - this is just an odd time of year for getting things done.

This is wonderful, I love it! Yes, I would believe how long it took you. Sometimes it takes me a week or more to finish a project, then I have to clean up after myself . . . sigh.

Very cute gift card holder. I love that little Christms tree tag...so cute! I hope your mojo returns soon Wendy :)

Kate said...

As I love all things green, I really like this gift card holder - and LOVE that ribbon!! I really like the way you've added two sets of holes top and bottom for the ribbon as well.
My list is very long too - and it can be quite daunting. Just take one thing at a time and you'll get there!

Hope your mojo comes back soon.
