Funky lil gift card holder




With the mad rush of last minute gifts to make, packages to wrap, boxes to mail, baking that didn't get done, I still have a couple of projects that I wanted to share.

If you look closely at this funky 6"x6" card, you will see that it is actually a pocket containing a gift card. The best part is that 3-D stocking. I shaded it a bit then used my finger to poof it up. I didn't want it to collapse so I cut two slender strips of packing foam and glued in the center prior to adhering it to the card front.

WOW! Fantastic project! Never would of thought about using packing foam. Isn't it amazing what we find to recycle for our cards. It is very stunning!
