TLC248 Stocking Gift Card Holder {11/23/09}
 
With the holidays upon us, retailers estimate that roughly $95 billion worth of gift cards will be sold in the US this year. With the simple ease of gift card buying, we all want to make the presentation of those gift cards as special as we can and today's technique will help you do just that. (Look for more gift card holders in the next couple of weeks)

Claire Brennan a/k/a Waltzingmouse has shared such an adorable way to present your gift cards with THIS printable template. Just print this template onto a single piece of cardstock, cut and decorate. No sewing required. :) It couldn't be easier, and with Claire's template, you can whip up these in a hurry. You can even print out the template onto patterned paper that you cut to fit the size capability of your printer.

I'm so excited to see all the various ways you will decorate your stockings...from simple, to country, to feminie and elegant...I know you will WOW and AMAZE me.

To view my sample for today's challenge, just CLICK HERE.

Be sure to include the keyword TLC248 (no spaces) when you upload your projects.

HINT FOR NEXT WEEK: It's time to raid the garage for metal washers. The ones I have are 1-3/4". If you don't have any in the garage, your local hardware or farm store is sure to have these.

Oh Lynn...............what fun this will be to make. Our church support a children's home and this year they've asked that we donate all types of gift cards....so I will use this for my donation. Will make it just a little more festive for whomever receives it.
I LOVE everything that Claire does.........
Off to play !

Lynn in St. Louis 11-23-2009 03:38 AM

I second that...Claire is AMAZING!

Lynn in St. Louis 11-23-2009 05:05 AM

No kidding Theresa...it's crazy busy for everyone. This project takes hardly any time at all. I knew everyone would be short on time, so I wanted to pick something that wouldn't take that long.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
