A quick Christmas gift card holder

Well, it's the last full week before Christmas and the chaos has begun LOL!!  For the next couple of days I'll be sharing a few quick Christmas projects with you, just in case you need to whip up some last minute items.

Let's start things off with a gift card holder.  I like to jazz up my gift cards a little so I created this holder in less than 10 minutes (minus the glitter glue drying time) and here's how:

Stamp the Noteblock stamp (from Purple Onion Designs) in red ink and heat emboss with clear glitter powder.  Cover front and back of die cut gift card holder (you could also easily make your own in a few minutes using a strip of 4" x 12" paper) with patterned paper.  Adhere ribbon tie around middle of holder.  Trim and mat Noteblock onto die cut scalloped rectangle (edges were covered in Stickles)  and adhere to front of holder.  Add a large ribbon bow at edge of stamped block, add snowflake accent and add stamping to the inside as desired. 

See you tomorrow with a tag and treat bag......
