Gift Card Holders & Gift Tags

I found a tutorial to make these gift card holders on the Hero Arts Stamps blog. They are very simple to make. I made them for 5 of our teen granddaughters.

This is what the inside looks like. Behind the ivory circle, I cut a slit in the folded piece of cardstock and then inserted the gift card in the slit. I wrote their names on the round circle.
We gave one of our grandsons a check so I made this holder for it. It's very simple, just measured the check and then cut a piece of cardstock and folded it to make a pocket. It can't be seen, I used one of my small round punches and punched a half circle in the middle of the top layer so the check could easily be taken out of the holder.
These are gift tags that I made for the presents of our younger grandchildren. I made several more, however, forgot to take pictures of them. They were made using 2 different sizes of oval scalloped punches. I used stamps from an A Muse Christmas stamp set, punched a hole at the top and used some gold cord for the tie on. Very simple and super fast to make. I had intended to make up some sets to sell, however, did not get that accomplished. Maybe next year.

This tag I used a stamp from a Stampin' Up set. The snowflakes are a Memory Box stamp.

I used Copic markers to color the stamps.

The girls loved the gift card holders as much as the gift cards. I'm wondering where my gift card is....

I don't know. You have to ask your father. :)
