Last Minute Gift Card Holders ~ Scrapbook Pal

Christmas day is coming fast upon us!  Are you ready? 

If you’ve run out of time to shop, gift cards always fit the bill.

 Today’s project for making gift card holders is quick and easy using basic supplies from your stash and the Tim Holtz Thinlits “Collector” die set

The papers I used are from the Sweet Peppermint collection from Prima.  They truly are sweet in the vintage style that I love. 

The Collector die set includes 45 dies that allow you to create these adorable mini file folders and all the embellishments you can possibly think of. These little envelopes can be used for so many things. Think of sharing seeds with your friends, tucking love notes inside to put in your loved ones lunch box or add them to a card to make it interactive.

I die cut the tags out of patterned paper from the Sweet Peppermint collection and sponged on some Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink.  I'll add the names of the recipients here.

I love that Tim Holtz even thought of the disc closures.  I simply glued them on from the center, being careful not to get glue on the outside edge of the discs, so I could add the string to close up these cute envelopes.  A brad would work here as well.

My shopping is done, so now I can enjoy the beauty of this wonderful celebration of Jesus' birth.  The most precious gift of all!


Here is a list of links to the following products I used that can be found at Scrapbookpal.

Oh these are all just lovely, such pretty papers you used for them, decorated so pretty on front and back. How clever to have just glued the centers, I didn't think of that, I used brads on mine and it was a little tricky but I was able to do it :)
I am done with everything too, so good to be able to concentrate on what really is important.
