easy gift card holder...

Happy Monday!!
I had time to get a little crafty this weekend *woot*
I always try to do a little something for the peeps on the Hospitality Team at my church, and with Valentine's day coming up, I whipped up these cute little gift card holders. 

I purchased some gift cards at Orange Leaf (because not everyone drinks coffee~gasp!!!) & Starbucks.  I pulled out some of my retired SU! paper (this series goes way back!!), and my nestability circle/scallop dies and these came together pretty fast!!

Here are the directions:
1.  Cut a piece of patterned paper 8 x 4 inches (score at 4 inches; fold).  
2.  Use circle punch or nestability die to cut half circle on the top.  
3.  I added a small clear bag to hold the gift card inside (purchased at Michael's in the cake decorating section); add a dot of adhesive to the bag to hold in place, adhere on the inside.
4.  use adhesive to glue sides together; fold.  
5.  Insert gift card into clear bag, trim bag (if needed), fold and tape closed.  
6.  Tie ribbon around the base.
7.  Cut out sentiment/scallop with nestabilities; adhere to gift card holder with a pop dot.  Viola!!!

I made the tags in Photoshop; and of course I will share!!

Enjoy Today!!
