Gift card holders.

Hello Wednesday, oh how I wish you were Friday.  I hope your week is going by quickly.  I'm having a  good week, I just have SO much that I'm excited about, the holidays, the basement, our upcoming trip, that I can barely contain myself!  I hate to wish away my time, but I'm so looking forward to the things to come in just the next few weeks.  Do you find yourself doing that?

Today I wanted to share with you my gift card holders for this year.  I use the same template every year, 4x6 and score at 1 1/2 and 4".  I almost always round my edges and then decorate that puppy up!

I'm using the 12x12 Theresa Collins *I think* paper pad and my $1.50 Michaels stamp.

Loving my baker's twine this year.  I would be LOST without it!

I found those stick pins at Michaels.  Recollections *I think* 40% *for sure* I LOVE them!  Could I have made them?  Probably.  Would I have, maybe?  Would these gift cards be finished now?  No way!  I'm all about streamlining this year and being honest with myself :)

Thanks for popping in today for a minute!  I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and I'll be back on Friday with a new project!! 


  1. Cute! You have lots of fun to look forward to!

  2. oh these are so pretty! love the stick pins and i too would be lost without my twine! LOL!! just finished a layout last night and broke out my twine!!!

  3. These turned and great and it sounds like they were really simple.....always a plus in my book!!! I am guilty of wishing time away when I have something exciting to look forward to - I think it is just natural. Enjoy your exciting holiday!

  4. I am loving that stamp that you got from Michael's!

    I am so with you on trying not to wish away time. Just this weekend, I told AJ I couldn't wait until it was dark so I could see my Christmas lights that I'd just put up. He reminded me not to wish the weekend away!

    Enjoy the next few weeks - I have a feeling Christmas is going to come faster than ever this year!

  5. I love it! I just bought myself two rolls of bakers twine. They had it in the Target Dollar spot. :) I was very happy because I love that stuff!

  6. Love your gift card holders and those stick pins.
    I am trying to be realistic and keeping things, how did you put it "Streamline and keeping it honest".
    That is why I kept all my Christmas cards the same and simple :)
    Heres to us keeping it real this year ;)

  7. Cute, cute, cute!

    I kind of do the same thing with the teacher's cards I make to keep it simple. Follow a certain formula.

  8. These are awesome. Sounds like you have a lot to look forward to! :)

  9. What a great gift card holder! That stamp is fabulous ...I just love it all!
