Christmas Gift Cards

I wanted to make some shaker gift/money holders that didn't involve cutting foam pieces with the Sizzix. I discovered that I could make simple holders using cardstock and cutting the window out with a Coluzzle template. On the back of the holder I taped on vellum paper with Merikan tape to make a pocket for the money or card. Inside the window I glued acetate and put a rubber-stamped card over the loose snowflakes. I will write up the project and include a template on our website ( sometime this week. The second photo shows the back of the two holders plus the inside of a previously shown card holder. Notice the MS snowflake punched border that was used to hold the card. If you are like me and clueless as to what to give nieces and nephews, make some of these holders and include money or gift cards. You'll save yourself some major headaches.
