Gift Card Holders - Part 2
One Sunday morning while we were having breakfast at Cracker Barrell I found these little fidget toys that I thought might make a nice stocking stuffer for the kids and that it might be cute to incorporate them on a gift card holder.
But then as time got tight and the deadline for getting things in the mail was upon me, I had to think of a Plan B. Remembered these gift bags I made earlier in the year. It was from this pattern for a "2-5-7-10 Box" on the Splitcoaststampers Resource page.
So I used a couple of sheets of embossed, glittered Christmas paper from a Debbie Mumm pack I bought at JoAnn's years ago and made a few more. I tucked the fidget toy down inside with the gift card and a couple of pieces of candy. In this picture the ribbon is still kind of long as I took the picture before I trimmed it up. I think they turned out pretty cute.
I have to say this pattern is really nice to have. It takes about 5 minutes to make and is a nice little project for those times when you want just a little papercrafted something for someone special.
