Christmas Gift Card Holders


I made gift card holders last June for my Son’s end of school gifts for his teachers, and they were so easy to make, I thought i would make them for Christmas as well.  These will be great for any gift cards I decide to give anyone on my list this year.  I already have directions on how to make these in my Tutorials.   So fast and easy and they are simple to embellish to suit any time of the year.

I used my So Many Scallops set for the circle sentiments on the top and bottom card holders. I simply punched the centers out with a 1 1/4″ punch and matted them with 1 1/2″ punched circles.

The other two card holders are embellished with a scallop punch square. I punched the little deer and tree first out of  the cardstock, then I lined up my scallop square punch over it, to get it centered.

All the papers are  Basic Grey Figgy decorative papers.

I also wanted to show you this card that I made for a new challenge I found called Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.  This week’s inspiration came from the movie Miracle on 34th Street.  Now, I much prefer the original version made in 1947, over the newer 1994 version.  So I went with a bit of a, days gone by, look.  The Santa is acually a crop of a larger stamp. I liked the focus being on this merry old Santa’s face. I used vintage photo distress ink to stamp him, and outlined the circle with a gold sakura stardust pen.  The sentiment is from the Flourishes Sleigh Ride set.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I so appreciate all your kind comments!

Thanks for visiting! I have always needed to express my creativity, and I am the happiest when I do so. My blog is a way to challenge myself creatively, keep me motivated and inspired, to explore new ideas, and to share them with others! I feel the need to express myself in new ways...I hope you'll join me!


  1. Oh, thanks so much! What a lovely idea to make these for the cancer clinic patients!I think your idea for an apple cider pouch is wonderful and especially sweet to be making them with friends for such a deserving group of people! Have fun, big hugs, Deena x

    Big hugs

    I really like your gift card holders. I have been making some myself as well and have discovered that they also fit a tea bag. I have been using mine for tea bag holders. My plan is to get a group of friends together next month to make about 100 of them to fit a apple cider pouch and give them to the patients at the cancer clinic who come for their chemo. Each of the ladies will make one for a patient and one for someone they know that could use a little “lift”. Thanks for sharing!
