To the great relief of many of you, I'm sure, I will now present my LAST experiment with the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit.

For this project, I cut one of the snowflake card bases in half, using only one of the halves to create a unique gift card holder. By adding Sticky Strip to the short sides, it was easy to form the perfect-sized pocket in which to slip a gift card for the Holidays.

To add lots of bling to this project, I faced the front underneath the diecut snowflake with a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Both the top and bottom of the pocket sport strips of the Washi Tape that came with the kit. I cut one of the kit's silvery diecut snowflakes in half and adhered it to the blue half snowflake. Then I added three of the Basic Rhinestones from the kit to the tips of each of the snowflake arms. Glue Dots, that also came with the kit, were added under each of the arms to fasten them to the Glimmer Paper.

See how cute the gift card fits into this darling EASY gift card holder? 
Very little effort, but lots of impact.

For the Holidays, did you create any special gift card holders? Or do you just depend on the ones you can purchase at the store? Anyone else use this Paper Pumpkin kit in other ways to make a gift card holder?

Did I happen to mention that I simply adored the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit? Now, I know the December kit is on its way, and can't wait to see what wonders that one holds. Stay tuned!
