TLC251 Beanie Gift Card Holder {12/14/09}
1 Attachment(s)
Baby it's cold outside...at least it has been in my neck of the woods. Nothing makes me feel warmer than a beanie cap - and when that beanie cap contains a gift card, I get all warm and fuzzy ALL over.

Today's TLC is another innovative and creative way to showcase those giftcards. When I saw THIS project, I knew that you all would love to get in on the fun especially this time of year when we are all scrambling for that perfect little gift card holder. I have another design that I want to share with you. Carolina a/k/a craftycaro has an awesome video tutorial on her blog which can be found HERE.

Carolina was even so nice as to write out a written tutorial for those who have problems viewing videos, which is attached at the bottom of this post. Big thanks goes out to Carolina for her creativity and willingness to share with all of us!

You can find my sample project HERE.

Don't forget to add the keyword TLC251 when you upload your projects.

Umm - I really do not need another gift card holder, but I just love the look of this, so maybe I can just make it into a regular card...it's so cute!

Cook22 12-14-2009 09:06 AM

I'll turn this into a thank-you later on...busy busy, but too cute not to play along.

Here's mine! I kind of like it without the little pom pom so this one doesn't have one.....


bound4london 12-14-2009 12:28 PM

Haven't been downstairs to play yet---but wanted to say Thank You for the great tutorial and the great ideas shown. Sorry I haven't written on every card but they are true works of art with different twists. Love them all! I have some gift cards for my husbands employees that I need to get ready and this will be a perfect way to present them! Thanks again for sharing!!

Here is my Beanie Gift Card holder that I made 2 days before this Challenge was posted, but thought it would be appropriate to add it here anyway. You will see in the deets that I had emailed Carolina to ask her permission to CASE it with a link back to her original design - I hope that this is OK to put my links here (?). I haven't edited my pics to add TLC251 to the keywords - should I do that even if the Technique was posted a day or so after my posting? There are 2 photos - one of the front and the other of the inside:

Thanks for peeking!

OMGosh, this is positively adorable. That Carolina ... leave it to her to come up with something as adorable as this. What a fun challenge, Lynn. Thanks
