Quick and Easy Gift Card Holder

With it being so close to Christmas, some of you may still have some last minute shopping gifts to purchase. Gift cards seem to be crowd pleasers. I like to personalize them with a special holder. They are the perfect way to let your friends and family know that you spent a little extra time on their gift. Steps:

1. Cut 2 identical ornament diecuts. I used my QuicKutz Silhouette to cut mine. You could make your own pattern or just use circles. Cut one of the ornaments in half. You will also need to cut a small white strip to go across the top of the cut ornament.2. Adhere the cut ornament and the strip of white paper on top of the whole ornament. Be sure to just adhere around the edges so the gift card will fit in. I put the gift card in while the adhesive was drying so it would easily fit afterwards. 3. Using the Rubber Romance stamp "Kiss Me You Fool," stamp her on a white piece of cardstock. Punch the image into a circle. 4. Color the stamped image with markers or colored pencil. Ink around the edges and adhere to the ornament center.
5. Add stickles to the furry part of the hat on the stamped image.
6. Add stickles on the ornament top and the white strip across the middle. Attach a ribbon hanger. Hang on the Tree and wait for Christmas Day! HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
