Holiday crafts are so much fun! I know a lot of us give gift cards at the holidays and I’m always looking for new ways to present them. For my project today, I made a tag with a gift card holder. These are great to hang on the Christmas Tree or even hanging on to a package.
I cut out the tag from the Mars and Ice Gold cardstocks. I wanted to use a background die, and I had this slimline background die that will work perfectly for this tag. I cut the tag first and then used the background die on that tag so it would fit perfectly on top of the other.
I did not want to cover the entire tag with the Ice Gold, so I used my paper trimmer and just trimmed it down on a diagonal and then adhered it to the red tag base with liquid glue.
Now, to the back side of the tag! I turned the tag over to put our gift card holder piece on. For this piece, I cut out another tag using the same die, but with the green glitter cardstock and then cut it on the diagonal with my paper trimmer. I used 1/8″ double sided tape on the back of the green piece – but only the sides and bottom. The top should not be adhered down because this is where the gift card will slide in.
For the last piece on the back, I cut a piece of the Mars metallic cardstock the width of the tag and just big enough to put “to:” and “from:” on it, so I would have a place to write names. I white embossed this on that piece and then used liquid glue to put that onto the green glitter.
I added some ribbon, twine, and sequins and our project is done!
