12 Days of Christmas: Day 3

Gift Card Holders are always a popular item at craft fairs for me. This year I used the Holiday Stocking Die for the Big Shot to make gift card holders with the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper and the Winter Wishes stitched felt embellishments.

These are a great size to also hold pencils, candy canes, stick candy or pixie sticks. To make the stocking nice and sturdy I cut two pieces in the coordinating cardstock color and then adhered a piece of Designer Series Paper to only the front. I embossed my cuff, heel and toes with embossing folders and the Big Shot.

I did use sticky strip to attach my cuffs, but otherwise I used green glue on these projects. The trick with green glue is you only need to use a little bit and it will go a long way! When I say green glue I mean the Multipurpose Liquid glue that comes in a green & white little bottle.

To add the ribbon hanger I just punched a hole with my Cropadile and threaded a some ribbon through then tied in a knot. The felt embellishments are adhered with glue dots.

I will be taking some of these to work with me to dress up my cubicle a little bit. You can also hang this from a tree as an ornament.

You can find all the items to make this project in my Online Store.
