December Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello everyone! Today is Lori Whitlock's December Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site because she has a sale and an awesome freebie for you!

For my project today, I created two Christmas gift card holders using a few of Lori's cutting files. They're called A2 Hugger Gift Card Holder, Elf and Santa (links below) and the file includes the envelopes too!  

What a great way to present someone with a gift card. These are cute and so much fun to make. The envelopes are 4.25" x 5.5" and I love the metallic bows.

I added a small magnet under the Elf's collar and Santa's beard and a second one under the gold metallic ribbon. These secure everything and keep the gift cards from sliding around. Tilt the head back and ...

... the front of the card flips down to reveal the gift!! There's plenty of blank space inside so you could write a thoughtful message, add embellishments, or add a photo.  

There's even a pretty scalloped tag on the backside for the To and From. I've add a quick video below to show you more ...

There are more inspiring projects to see today so be sure to hop to each blog for lots of great ideas!
