Christmas Gift Cards and on the 9th day of Christmas

Flowers may vary to the photo

Reminder: all paid orders placed today will go in the draw to win a 200 bulk mulberry flower pack


Some people don't like to give gift cards at Christmas time, as it may appear not much thought or time has been put into the gift. However, for the receiver it gives them the opportunity to choose something for themselves that they really want and will use. And, they can also take advantage of the Boxing Day and January Sales!

Why not create a tag or envelope to hang from the Christmas Tree, that you can insert the gift card into! The result is personalised and unique that will look fabulous hanging on the tree and won’t get lost amongst the wrapping paper and mayhem of Christmas morning!

Materials Used:
Rose Moka Mec Charmant
Blue Rhinestone Stars
Double Star Charm (Timber Brown Stazon Ink to stain it)
Chocolate Brown Organza Ribbon

Kaiser Christmas Spirit Cheerful Pattern Paper
Doilie sprayed with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist
White Organza Ribbon (sprayed with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist)
Silver Jump Rings
Christmas Tree Charm
Trees downloaded from clipart with a little kindy glitz

Materials Used:
Making Memories Mistletoe Pattern Papers
Christmas Stocking Charm
Poinsettia Flower
Red Glitter Ribbon
String and Clipart

Here are the templates I used - just right click them and save image as

and I have included a photo where I have taped the fold as you don't want to tape too close to your circle/star or the gift card won't be able to slide in. I used the 3mm width tape for the skinny part.

See you tomorrow with some gift wrapping ideas "in a different way"

Another wonderful idea Tracy. I give gift cards to some people at christmas and I will be giving them in one of these gorgeous designs this year rather than the ugly folder they give you at the shops! These are a nice idea to add a little love to a gift that other wise says you didn't bother lol.
