Christmas time! Busy days! I give lots of gift cards at Christmas. Our grandchildren are always excited to have money to spend after Christmas and we give them lots of gift cards..... large and small. From the six year old to the 17 year old, they love it! Well, even the adults love it! LOL I measured a gift card and decided how much paper to cut for total length and where to make the folds. I had seen a die to cut these out but decided I could make my own pattern. It turned out really well.
I gathered as many "Christmasy" papers as I could find and started cutting and folding. I decided to put a contrasting color on the flap. I also had these wonderful little labels from Jenni Bowlin that I used for the front. That allows me a place to write the name of the recipient. After the gift cards go in, I have little gold-seal stickers to hold the envelope closed. Needless to say, I'm very excited and pleased with this project! (Now, on to tags for our "over-flow" buckets. We all have stockings but we usually end up with little piles of goodies that wouldn't fit into the stockings. So this year we have little red, green and blue buckets to put the over-flow into. I'm making tags for the buckets. Happy times!)
