Day 8 Christmas Post

Today I made a Christmas gift card holder. It's perfect for those last minute gift card purchases to give them a "homemade" feel.

The base is made from Real Red card stock, cut 4-1/4"x6-5/8". Score it along the 6-5/8" side at 2-3/8" and 4-7/8". Fold along the score lines. The 1-3/4" section if the top flap. Punch the center of the 2-3/8" section with the 1" circle punch half-way down, then attach along the right and left sides using Sticky Strip.

The "a gift for you ...Merry Christmas" image is from the Christmas Punch stamp set and was colored using Real Red and Glorious Green markers on Whisper White card stock. This was punched out using the Large Oval punch, then layered onto a piece of Glorious Green card stock that was punched using the Scallop Oval punch. Attach this along the top half to the upper flap.

To finish it off and keep it closed, tie a piece of 1/2" Real Red striped ribbon around the top of the gift card holder.

Here is a picture of the gift card holder open:

Come back tomorrow to see what day 9 has in store.
