The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends. You should have arrived here from Joanne's blog.

This is the first blog hop I have ever participated in. I hope you enjoyed yesterday's stop at Joanne's blog. Today I am going to show you some gift card holder ideas.

My holders are made from left over patterned paper and cardstock that I have in my scrap paper folders. For the holder below I used a Spellbinder die cut and a cute little stamp that I embossed and then pen stitched around the edge.

On this one I used stretchy gold cord that wraps around the back to help keep the holder closed and the scalloped circle is cut with my Cricut.

This one has many folds to give it a 3D look!

My favourite is this one.

I hope my gift card holders give you some inspiration to create some of your own. Go to your scrap folders and bins and pull out some of your scraps or stop into Two Scrapbook Friends and pick up some of the great Christmas papers and embellishments they have. Either way, have fun!

Your second secret word is YEAR and tomorrow you will visit Avril's blog for the third day of the hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs you visit in order to qualify for a prize. I hope you enjoy the next 10 days of the hop!

Thank you for checking out my blog on The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.

Merry Christmas

    Looking good. Quick, and hopefuly easy, ideas, especially for those last minute gifts. I think they can also be used to share small photos of your favorite pet! Nicely done!
