A nifty gift card holder!

holiday thyme gift walletBeing that Christmas is almost upon us, and being a fan of the gift card at the best of times, I am always on the lookout for ideas that could incorporate a store gift card. Well I have found a GREAT one, and happily, the Holiday Thyme designer paper promotion that is happening at the moment is perfect for the job!

This is the outside of the little gift wallet - the base is Cranberry Crisp covered in one of the designs of DP and using a different design for the belly band.

The 'Merry' stamp is from the Level 2 hostess set A is for Adorable and is stamped in Cranberry Crisp onto Cranberry Crisp cardstock then matted onto Old Olive.

The belly band is just able to slide off and the little wallet opens up to reveal the gift card tucked neatly inside:

The post where I got the instructions for this idea can be found here, along with some other ideas for "Christmas Giftables" as they are so sweetly dubbed!

Obviously it is a very adaptable project for all sorts of occasions requiring a "giftable" and it is certainly one that I can imagine putting a different spin on.

Especially with some DELIGHTFUL new papers coming out in the Summer mini in a few days time...........
