Gift Card Holders

I'm back again after my Christmas break! We had a wonderful Christmas at my daughter Hayley's home, we stayed for a few more days after Christmas too. The weather was a bit cold for the beach, but it was a lovely break for us both. I think my grand-daughter received enough new toys to stock a new store, but it was just priceless seeing her reactions to everything. I hope you all had an amazing Christmas too! We've been home for a few days now, but I've been busy shopping at the post Christmas sales, I usually stock up on Christmas papers, ribbons etc. for next year while they're on, I even bought a couple of gifts for next Christmas too......just hope I don't forget by the time next Christmas comes around.

Here's a few gift card holders that were quick and easy to make. I did find a tutorial on them, but ended up altering them to better suit me anyway. The papers are from Kaisercraft's 'Be Jolly' 6x6 card pad, the greetings are rub-on's by Imaginesce. No stamping on these babies! I totally forgot to take a photo of the card insides!

Edited to add: The link to the tutorial I found these on is HERE at Dawn's Stamping Studio. I did alter the dimensions slightly and used cord/twine for closing 2 of my gift card holders - I adhered the die-cuts to the top flap in those ones.






We're heading into the city tomorrow night to spend New Year's Eve in a hotel so we can go out and see the fireworks up close. We don't usually do anything much for New Year's Eve so this will be something different! Hope you all have a Happy New Year!!

These are so pretty. What die cutter do you use for the background shapes-scallopped edges? Where did you find the tutorial?
Have a wonderful time watching the fireworks! I hope you will give us a full report and maybe even some photos! I hope 2011 is a much kinder year for you as you certainly deserve one. Thoughts and prayers your way from the snow laden Jersey Shore. Janis R

lovely gift card holders; I'd say they look real snazzy :)! The papers make them pop!

Such a great idea to motel nearby for the fireworks; a lovely way to see in the new year together.

Re the pre-purchased Christmas gifts for next year; leave a note in your online calendar (Outlook?) for a couple months ahead, as to where to stacked them!
