Seasonal Gift Card Bags

When we think gift card holders, we often think of flat envelopes like I have shared before.  Did you know that you can make a great gift card holder out of a treat bag using the Treat Bag Maker?  If you use the small measurements on a 10 x 5 1/2 strip of paper, it will fit a gift card inside before you tie it up.  Cute and functional! This project was designed for our Christmas is October camps by Cris McCarthy (my mom and fellow demonstrator!)

Punch two banners of red and Holiday Fancy Foil Vellum using the Triple Punch.  You staple those banners to the front of the bag.  Then you stamp the saying from the Oh, What Fun stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink and punch it out with the decorative label.  That is mounted on a 1 1/2 circle of Real Red and layered on the bag using dimensionals.  Tie it closed with a piece of our 1/8 Striped Rea Red ribbon from the holiday catalog and you have a cute bag that was fun to make and fun to give!
