Gift Card Holders

The season is quickly approaching and soon you will be looking for cute gift card holders and great packaging ideas, right?!  I love to give my little gifts in totally cute packaging!  Giving a gift card as a gift may feel like your cheating but, the recipient will love that they can go get exactly what they want.
You can create cute gift card holders with the time you will save by not having to spend trying to pick out the perfect gift!


For today’s project you will have to forgive me for using products that are retired through Stampin’ Up! but, I am busy creating for an upcoming craft show so, I am using up some great papers in my collection!  The Stocking Die was offered last year through Stampin’ Up!.  You can create your own template if you do not have this die.

I used designer paper for the front, Very Vanilla cardstock for the backs (which I just used my liquid glue to attach), and a very sparkly piece of the Silver Glimmer Paper for the tops of all of the stockings.

Sponging a bit of Soft Suede ink around all of my bits and pieces really helps to make it “pop”.  I used some brown felt ribbon for my hanger.  Using a crop-a-dial I punched a hole through the ribbon and the top of the stocking and used a brad to attach to the stocking.  I also hot glued retired felt pieces over the brads for adding decoration.


I hope that you enjoyed today’s project and you are beginning to think of ways to create your own cute packages this holiday season!  Let me know if I can help you!

Ok, now that you have that taken care of…..I have another quick and easy idea for Halloween!
Who would not like a little something cute on top of their cupcakes?  I think that I will make these for the Halloween party that I am planning for my son’s class.  Of course, I will have to buy store made cupcakes (NO fun).  I understand why they do this but, that will not stop me from embellishing them to MY hearts content!  🙂


Won’t these look adorable poking into some great cupcakes?  I think so.  🙂


Here they are all packaged up!  These cuties are going into MY ETSY STORE too!
