Christmas Gift Card Holder


I am so in love with this paper from Doodlebug Designs! It is the new Milk and Cookies line and I picked it up at the Craft Warehouse when I was in Idaho a couple of weeks ago. I always give lots of gift cards at Christmas time so this paper was perfect to make a fun and cute holder for one.


Defelcto flexible pouches
Deflecto Flexible Pouches come in two sizes and they are great for all kinds of projects! I used the smaller size for this gift card holder. These pouches are also great for storing paint samples and color combos; they are super handy to carry in your purse when you are shopping.   You can also use the large size pouches to create a mini album - check it out here.

Creating a custom gift card holder
I started by covering both sides of the pouch with patterned paper. I used the new Milk and Cookies line from Doodlebug Designs - it is so cute! On the back side of the pouch where the plastic overlaps, I adhered a smaller piece of paper to slip inside.

Here comes Santa Claus
I adorned the front of the pouch with more paper from the Milk and Cookies line. I love to add faux stitching to my projects - it just adds so much visual depth to a piece! I layered die cut stickers, paper accents, and some amazingly cute Shape Sprinkles to embellish this side.  My last step was to outline the sticker shape with a thin black pen - it just makes the shape pop off the page. I am in LOVE with the Stabilo Point 88 Thin Line pens. Those things are amazing an give the best thin line!

Ho Ho Ho
On the reverse side I added more paper accents. The sentiment is created with Joy Embroidered Letters. These two colors were perfect for this paper line and this font is so fun and playful.  I cut a matching piece of card stock to fit inside the pouch and adhered the gift card using temporary tape. Punch a hole in the end of the card stock and tie on lots of ribbons to finish it off.
