Santa Gift Card Holder

Add Santa flair to your gift cards this holiday by making this fun and easy gift card holder.

Materials:
Teabag Envelope Cut It
Buckle Cut It Simple Shapes
Cardstock

Directions:

I used the Teabag Envelope Cut It from the Love you A Latte Cut It Bundle, however I did have to resize to fit the card. You can do this in Make-The-Cut or a vector manipulation program like Illustrator, or the free version, Inkscape. You will want to size it to 9.5" by 3.5" inches.  I then sized the Buckle down to 1.5" wide. I cut both out. I then created a stripe of paper 8 inches long by .6968" for my belt.

Fold your card and glue tabs into place, wrap belt around. I secured the back with glue and left the front of belt free. Insert your gift card and secure belt with the buckle.

The Buckle is also available in our amazing Simple Shapes Super Plus Bundle on sale now!  Save an additional 25% on any purchase $15 or more with coupon code: Merry25.

We used the santa head from Little Ho-ho-ho-ligans and a small plastic jar filled with red Sixlets.  Get Little Ho-ho-holigans now in "The Littles" bundles...either a cutset bundle or graphics bundle...doesn't matter because they are both 75% off!

Do you want to build a snowman?

We've got some great gift and card ideas for you made with the new "Melting For You" Product!




For a cute and easy gift make some white playdough for your "snowman" gift.  If you want to really add a little magic, you can mix in some white glitter.  Here is our favorite playdough recipe:

Playdough
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp. cream of tarter
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil
  • optional: food coloring
  • optional:  peppermint oil or other flavoring
Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium size saucepan and mix.  Add the water and oil (and peppermint oil if you wanted to add that).  Turn the stove on medium/low and stir.  It's really lumpy at first.  Keep stirring until it gets thick.  Make sure you scrape the bottom of the pan as you stir.   As soon as the dough doesn't look "wet" anymore, take it off the burner.  Dump the dough out on wax paper or plastic wrap and let it cool down.  Come back about 30 minutes later and knead the dough for a few minutes until it feels smooth.  You can add  food coloring if you want at this point.  Make sure you store it in an air-proof container!



For your gift, you can either put the "snowman" dough in a baggy or a jar.  Cut your "snowman" pieces out of the "Melting For You" Product and attach to your gift w/ a little baggy.  



If you don't want to give playdough, think about giving the snowman pieces on a darling card because really... who doesn't want to build a snowman?  And this snowman won't make you wet, messy, or cold!

As you can see from all the photos, there are many ways to go about making your snowmen cards.
