Stocking Gift Card Holders



Hi everyone! I can't believe Christmas is next week already! Are you all finishing up on your Christmas shopping? I'm just about finished with mine so I'm now moving onto wrapping....I just do a little each day so it's not so overwhelming. Anyway, two of the items that needed *wrapping* are gift cards for my uncle and brother. I saw my good friend Silke posted one of these CUTE stocking gift card holders on her blog last week and just HAD to try it out. So fun! The template from Claire can be found HERE on SCS.


This first one is for my uncle's Home Depot gift card (I won't be with him when he opens it, so I made sure to write a little note on the tag so he knows to take off the raffia and look inside).


The next one is for my brother's Sears gift card.

Thanks for stopping by!
