OCC Challenge - Gift Card Holder & Giveaway

Hello and thanks for stopping by! :) Today's card is for this weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner. The challenge is to make a gift card holder. There are a all sorts of fabulous tutorials on making a gift card holder but I got mine from a wonderful challenge "TLC196" on Splitcoast a few week's ago.

We hope you play along and remember there is no time limit on our challenges, feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here is a close-up by the gift card, I even sprinkled some glitter onto the snowflake.

Check out this wonderful video tutorial on how to make one of these gift card holders for someone special this Christmas.









Note: I did not create this video and do not take credit for it. I am sharing this video from the Hero Arts Blog.

Another fun idea for a gift card holder, you read this fun tutorial from this week's OCC guest designer, Tori Wild. She has created this simple gift card holder template on her blog.
If you would like to win this gift card holder, please leave me a comment. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, December 16th.

I would love to win this card holder. I have just one gift card this year and those little envelopes Walmart gives you just leave me heaving. No creativity. However, the gift card is really cute. It is for a 7 yr old girl and it is a little CHristmas tree and it has stickers right on the card to peel off and decorate the tree before they turn it in for gifts from Walmart. Maybe they will let her keep her gift card, too, after she uses it up. So this gift card holder will be just the thing to keep it in and give it to her in. Thanks for the chance. I love your blog!
