Gift Card Holders

Although my craft week is over, I still have so many projects on my plate right now. :) I plan on sharing them with you...hope you're ready. lol

My rule for gifts at Christmas is keep it simple & cheap. lol Especially this year, who knew a new house would suck you dry egh!? There's paint, door knobs, moving trucks & NOT to mention all those fees for breathing in the lender's office...haha!
So, I decided any child over the age of 10 will receive a gift card from us. It allows me to enjoy my holiday season-stress free and it also allows the pre-teen to choose their own gift. Oh, Bah-humbug, where's the spirit!? lol I find that most kids that age prefer money or gift cards anyway!
I decided to spruce up the four cards I plan on giving. These ideas are perfect for birthdays too! Here are 4 quick and easy ways to do so.
Supplies:
pattern paper or fabric
cardstock
ribbon/twine
sewing (optional)
embellishments (tags from our December Daily Album Kit)

I find that I am better with visuals than reading so I created a short video on the tips and tricks to these 4 card holders in case you want to know more.

Have fun creating your own!
