Today's idea is a Christmas Stocking Gift Card/Money Holder

Stocking Recipe

Stamps - Darcies Clear Stamp Set POL13 Santa Baby
Papers - My Mind's Eye (I Believe)
Gold Jingle bell and ribbon
Marvey punched scalloped oval
Border punch EK Success
Colored with Copic Markers

I added a loop of cardstock before gluing the front to the back.
I wrapped my gift card in foil wrapping paper, added a gold ribbon, and left the card peeking out of the stocking.

Right click on stocking, then click on Print Target

Cut out pattern for the stocking.
Cut two pieces of card stock from the pattern. You will need to cut them so they go together with the decorated side of the cardstock is on the outside
Lay the gift card on the inside center of the back piece of the stocking, gift card even with the top.
Trace the gift card in pencil.
Use a strong tape adhesive, run a line along both sides and the bottom of the traced lines.
This will prevent the gift card from going down into the stocking.
Glue the rest of the stocking back, and adhere the front to the back.
Round the corners on the top of the stocking.
Cut a strip of contrasting paper 8" x 2 1/2". Using a border punch, punch a border on the bottom of the strip.
Center the strip on the front of the stocking, fold at edges of stocking on either side to the back.
Before attaching, round the corners at the side folds.
Adhere to the top of the stocking.
Have fun decorating this fun gift card/Money holder.
You can put gift card/money right in the slot you created or leave it sticking out.

Despite the long step by step instructions, these go together fast with really cute results.
With the holidays only weeks away, these handy gift card holders could come in handy and can be decorated for anyone.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great Monday.
