A Cute Gift Card Holder

To start off this new year I thought I'd share with you a project that I made to help me keep one of my New Year's resolutions ...to use up some of my papercrafting scraps! I really want to try to make my "scrap box" the first place I go to when making a new project. My "scrap box" is filled with bits and pieces of the most wonderful cardstock, designer papers, buttons, ribbons, etc., all of which I loved enough to keep, so why not use them up! In fact, I think I'm going to change the name of my "scrap box" to "My Treasure Chest", because that is exactly what it holds, pretty {and oh so useful} little treasures! 
So on to my project! A gift card holder.
 
 
These little things come in handy any time of the year and are an excellent way to use some of those pretty treasures found in our "Treasure Boxes". I used Melissa's sweet little image "Ice Skating Mouse", which you can find right here  on the tag. Isn't she the cutest little mouse ever! And she coloured up so quick and easy too! This gift card holder actually comes together quite easily...I even got my hubby to make one! {That's another story for another day, giggle}.
 
As you can see I was able to use up a lot of different co-ordinating pieces of card stock and designer papers. The "top" of the gift card holder slips into the "envelope-like bottom", creating the look of a gift-wrapped box. Here is a close up of the tag.

Well, I hope I've brought a bit of inspiration into your day. Remember, we love to see your projects using Meljen's images and don't forget our "Anything Goes" challenge happening this week.
Until next time.
hugs,
Nancy
