Well two pieces of velcro, to hold the flap close, was the true finishing piece! And I think that's all the holiday projects and/or cards I have to share in 2009...Can you believe 2010 is just around the corner? Amazing how quickly (and not so quickly) this year has gone by! Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

Gift Card Holder
Is it too far past Christmas to post a Christmas gift idea? :-) I couldn't post this before the holidays as this was for my in-laws and my MIL reads my blog each day (hi Mom!) Speaking of holidays, did everyone have a lovely time? We enjoyed a house full of relatives on Christmas Eve and then had a quiet day at home with just our kids and my 90-something year old Grandmother on Christmas morning. It was a wonderful few days of celebrating! So onto the gift card holder!! I got this idea from SCS, which is a wonderful source of inspiration for anyone looking for ideas. In the forum section there is a search option and I just put in "gift card holder" to look for some ideas on how folks packaged gift cards. This is a super easy project, made out of just two pieces of patterned paper. I had a few pieces of this lovely holiday paper in my stash from a year or so ago. I love the colors and patterns! To create the holder I just measured around the card and scored the paper to fold around it. I then added a coordinating piece of cardstock to the front flap. (This paper is double sided so it was easy to get the pattern on both sides). As for my flap image, this is from a Just Rite holiday stamp set that has yet to see ink so how could I resist using it for this project! A big 'ol bow was the finishing touch!
