Santa Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share a quick and simple project for this month using some of my favorite Altered Pages supplies and I got to try my creativity with some of the printable film from this month's sponsor Craft Attitude.

I'm going to show you how to create a gift card holder from a tag so lets get started.

The base of this gift card holder is created from a #10 tag (4 1/8"x8 1/2") and all you need to do is fold as shown below. Also ink all edges of the tag in red.

I cut cardstock to fit the inside and then adhered to the tag. I didn't cover the inside of the "pocket" since it won't be seen.

I did the outside of the tag the same as inside.

Next I punched a tiny hole in the center of the flap and threaded the twine through and tied off on the backside. Then I adhered the flap down and used cloths pins to keep everything in place while it dried.

Then I ran a small line of adhesive down each side of the fold to create a pocket and I used cloths pin to hold it together while it dried.

Next I printed Santa from the Altered Pages Collage Sheet Very Vintage Santa onto the Craft Attitude film, adhered to a piece of white cardstock and once dry I then fussy cut the image out.

I adhered the image to the back of the gift card holder and added a little Stickles here and there to give Santa a little sparkle.

Next I used three buttons, two small and one large to create the button closure. In this order I glued the larger button and  then the two smaller ones to the top of the flap. Which I finished off with a dew drop.

There you have it an easy and simple gift card holder. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
