Gift Card Holders

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! It's only 8:30 and I've made cookie dough, a pumpkin pie, and peanut butter fudge. AND my kitchen is clean. Who's impressed? No one? Oh. Well. Maybe you'll like my handy dandy gift card holders!

 Left: Sticker by K and Company. Right: Felt sticker from Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.

Left: Vintage cut by Crafty Secrets. Right: Stamp by Crafty Secrets, Vintage Christmas (I think).

I got this idea from Cardmaker magazine last year and I still can't get enough of them. They are so cute and so handy. I made seven yesterday! I cut the hinges with my Expression, Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The papers are My Mind's Eye. I used some Basic Grey ribbon and some Christmas ribbon from Michael's (dirt cheap right now! Go get some!). I do love to make bows but I was pressed for tie so I settled for putting a simple knot in the ribbon trim and topped with a brad. I believe the brads are HOTP. I picked them up super cheap at a convention last summer. 

I used stickers and vintage cuts to avoid the complication of stamping. However, that Santa stamp is simply perfect with Memento ink. No chalking, no inking, no coloring and I do like the simplicity! WHEW!
