Your Presents

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are featuring Christmas GIFT CARD HOLDERS!

I went with a fun and easy holder made from a TREAT BAG.

The vellum polka dot bag is perfect for Christmas!  I just added a belly band and embellishments.

First, score the bag 3″ up from the bottom.  Fold the bag over and now you have two pockets!  I added a belly band in place of adhesive to the bag.  You want your gift card to fit in the pocket created by folding the bag over.

I embellished the belly band with a fun gift using YOUR PRESENTS and the BOW BUILDER PUNCH.  Cucumber Crush was the perfect green to pair with Real Red for Christmas!

The card insert for the holder was just as simple!  The Real Red was cut 4″ x 4 1/2″ to fit into the top of the bag.  I added a present to it as well.  I wanted the sentiment to be just as bold as the present, so I went with the “Merry Christmas” from MERRY EVERYTHING.  I also added in a little extra sentiment “wishing you” from HOLLY JOLLY GREETINGS.
