Creative and Charmed Gift Card Holders

Hello! The countdown is definitely on at my house - 4 more days until Christmas! I cannot believe it!!! My little guy is filled with anticipation and excitement as we prepare to celebrate our Savior's birth! Ok, I admit it, he is also looking forward to a visit from the jolly guy in red! :o)

My little guy likes to get gifts but
he loves to give gifts - he has such a big heart and I am thankful for that. He wanted to get his teacher, the principal, the school secretary and his music teacher something for Christmas. After much discussion we settled on gift cards. I told him that since they are all girls and that I had the pleasure of using the beautiful December Kit of the Month - Nouveaux Vintage that I would create some gift card holders for these special women in his school family. Yippee, time to play with my Expression!!!

I created the following 4 different gift card to holders for the previously mentioned ladies and I still have a lot of product left over to continue creating! Order your kit today if you didn't order it yet - you won't be disappointed with all of the creative goodness in this kit!
From left to right:

The first is a little purse that I decorated using a Vintage Poppy with Pearl Brad - VINTAGE BROWN, some Soft Spoken Christmas stickers from my stash and for the purse strap I used Velvet Ric Rac - BROWN from the kit.
The next gift card holder is one that I have been wanting to try to create for a while now and just purchased a perforation blade for my cutter! I tried to make one of the fun zip boxes that you can buy at the card store - they are too fun! I used my expression to cut out a box and used the perforation blade to create the tear off top. I decorated the box using some stickers from my stash, a Vintage Poppy with Pearl Brad - IVORY (I replaced the pearl brad with a Vintage Jewel - LIGHT GREEN) and put a Vintage Jewel on the pull tab. I will have to let you know how it goes after Christmas. Come back to my blog after Christmas for the results!
The last two gift card holders are more of your basic holders but turned out very nice with the products from the kit.I placed some more stickers from my stash and a Vintage Poppy with Pearl Brad - VINTAGE BROWN (I replaced the center with a Gradient Gem Sticker - GREEN and placed one on the flap too - these are not included in the kit) on the white holder on and some stickers and a Vintage Poppy with Pearl Brad - IVORY on the red holder.

Thanks for looking at my December projects!

Wishing you and the ones you love a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
