One thing I worked on this week was fulfilling some orders I received at a craft show. I made gift tags, candy holders and gift card holders. The gift card holders were so much fun. I made lots of different kinds as you can see. I used Scentsational Seasons, Watercolor Winter and Jolly Bingo Bits from Stampin' Up! for the gift card holders pictured here.

I even made my own designer series cardstock. I needed the thickness of the cardstock but wanted the look of Designer Series Paper so I just went ahead and made my own. Sooooo much fun. You can do 'random stamping' like I did on the Christmas Tree or pointsettia cardstock, or you can so a specific pattern like I did on the candy cane, gingerbread man and hot cocoa cardstock. So, which one is your favorite? Oh, if you're trying to copy mine exactly, keep in mind that in this photo my cardstock is already cut to the size I needed for this project.

Here is a photo of the inside of the project. I attached a folded envelope (which created two pockets) to the inside of my hand stamped designer series cardstock. In the pockets I placed two little decorated blank cards where you could write a note and attach a gift card. I finished it off with a belly band to keep everything inside.
