Gift Card Holder

Good evening!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Mine was very busy between holiday parties and trying to get various projects wrapped up.  My Christmas cards are nearly done and just about ready to put out in the mail, and I also managed to get a gift card created.

I knew I wanted to participate in the challenge this week over at Fantabulous Cricut - Bells are Ringing.  I got some inspiration from a number of gift card holders I've seen on blogs and Pinterest recently, and also from one of the FCCB Design Team Members, Missy.

I folded a piece of 6.5" x 4.5" cardstock in half and glued the two side together, leaving the top open.

I used the Book feature of the Elegant Edges cartridge to cut the tag and punched a hole in the top, tying a bow with crinkle ribbon.  I tied a jingle bell to the bow - thanks for the idea of using an actual bell Missy!  There you go, gift card holder complete - just decorate as you wish!
