Hi Everyone! Holly here with an idea or two for giving gift cards this Christmas. I have two styles to share and I believe they can easily be adapted for birthdays and other occasions.
Both gift card holders use the Snowflakes are the Butterflies stamp set. The ornament shaped one also uses the Deck the Halls , Christmas CuddlersRejoice and Hallelujah and Textured Holiday Words   stamp sets. The scalloped square one also uses the Flourishes 1 stamp set.
Both gift card holders use a brad hinge to allow the top to swing aside to show the gift card. This one uses two slots cut into the paper to hold the card.
This card holder has a pocket to hold the card.
Distress Inks were used for all the stamping and sponging around the edges.
There are no limits to the shape you choose as long as it's large enough to hold the card. The pocket requires a larger design, whereas the slot design allows for a smaller shape.
This can be presented as a card or hang it on the tree as an ornament.
Here you see the top 'leg' of the brad rolled with round nose pliers to create a hanging loop.
My next post will be after Christmas, so I'd like to extend my best wishes for a very Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday season. May you stay safe and be happy!

lovely gift tags. What a neat idea to roll one of those brad legs. That will definitely get put into my repertoire.
Have a great day

Wonderful!! Now you're forcing me to do something creative with the Tim's gift cards for my kidlets (although they think I should just auto reload their old ones!). Wonderful use of the brad as a hanger! Very clever. And I like the holly in the middle of the wreath.
