So why not spruce it up a little bit!! These cute little gift card holders were made for a coworker. Easy peasy to do. Take an envelope and fold it in half. I prefer SU! Whisper White Envies...because they have a flat flap, not pointed. Cut the flap along the fold. Seal the left side. The right side remains open for you to tuck a gift card or money into the envelope. Wrap a ribbon length around the envelope and place stamped image over ribbon. Tie at the side. Super fun and super easy!!
I used the Merry Christmas Wheel on both the front and the back of the envelope. I made a mask for the unsealed flap so I could stamp a sentiment. I suppose I could take a picture.
I have to say...this is my very first Penny Black Stamp...Lana don't send me to the corner!!! I purchased this from the ever wonderful Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie. I noticed the other day that eP loaded more Penny Black stamps to their store!! I might as well send them my paycheck. Images were colored with Copic markers, also available at eP!!
