A Gift Card Holder

Happy Aloha Friday!! I have a quick project to share with you today...maybe you can whip some up over the weekend (it's always good to have some made up before the busy-ness begins!!). It's a simple matchbook gift card holder:

I cut a piece of card stock to 3" x 9-1/4"...then scored it at 4-1/4" and 8-3/4". I stamped and decorated the cover with stamps #922 (Merry Christmas), #A154 (Peppermint Flowers) and #A155 (Candy Cane Chick). Staple a 12" piece of ribbon in the center of the 1/2" tab, as shown below:

Tie the ribbon into a bow. Cut two pieces of 1/2" x 1-1/2" card stock (these will be like photo corners to hold the gift card in place)...and fold as shown below:

Wrap the corners around the gift card, and apply double stick tape to the back of each corner...then stick to card:

Hope you have a great weekend and can find some stamping time!!!

I love the little duck holding the candy cane . . . it is nice to see animals other than penguins and reindeer on a Christmas card
