Gift Card Holders

Here's a great way to present those boring, ho-hum gift cards that you're planning on giving this year. Make a unique Gift Card Sleeve!

This one is for my mom , whose special indulgence is stopping by her local Starbucks . . . .I bet alot of you can relate to that!

A simple, folded strip of cardstock is all that you need to make a pocket. Then secure a layered, co-ordinating wrap around it. Add a block on top showcasing your theme and make sure to ink the edges.
This is a great opportunity to use those decorative scissors that have been collecting dust!

I used Cricut's "Graphically Speaking" for the mug, steam, & the "Mmmmm"

And then dressed up the Slide-Out Tag with some rhinestones . . .

Here's another one that cutely (is that a word?) keeps a gift card to Blockbuster safe . . .
After all ~ what's a movie without the popcorn?

This time I added some doodly penwork around the edges for a fun feeling and also embossed the "popcorn" & top of the pull-out tag with my QuicKutz embossing die . . .

So give these guys a try . . . They're easy, quick, & inexpensive ~ A great way to use up the scraps you've got sitting around.

And it's so much more fun to give a blah gift card this way. . . .The recipient sure will remember it!
