It's an Ornament, No Wait, It's a Gift Card Holder...Maybe it's Both!

Happy Thursday!
Today I have a fun little tree ornament that doubles as a gift card holder, so I guess you can say it's two gifts in one! I used my Cricut Winter Woodlands and George cartridges, my Gypsy machine and my large circle and scalloped circle Nesties to create it.
I started out with one of those paper coasters you get in restaurants, cut out circles with my largest circle and scalloped circle Nesties to cover the front and back then proceeded to decorate it. The snowman and snowflake are from the Winter Woodlands cartridge and the heart is from George. I love that heart!
To create the pocket for the gift card, I just cut one scalloped circle in half and glued only the scallops together and tah-day.....a gift card holder! LOL!
I sandwiched the hanging ribbon in between the layers for sturdiness. Lastly I centered the snowflake with a vintage button and used an old Stampin Up stamp set for the "to and from". I had this for sale in my Etsy shop, but it didn't stay there long! LOL!
THANK YOU for dropping by to see me today! And as always thanks for the kind words you leave for me to read! See you tomorrow for another fun card! HUGS!

Pin It!

I so love the country feel to this ornament! The colors are so perfect for this and the cutouts too! I love that it is a gift card too. Great way to hide a gift on the tree! Best, Curt
