Christmas HOME Gift Card Snowman

I've been Makin' a List, and Checkin' it twice== and I am thinking there are alot  of people on my list this year who will LOVE picking out their own gifts using a GIFT CARD!  Sometimes, I feel like it's a cop-out-- but this project was a way to give them something I made them, but also get their gift card.  I hope you enjoy seeing this little goodie!

This gift card holder is made by  Creative Imaginations and Is a part of their Bare Elements line.   The front cover measures 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" .  It opens like a book and includes a plastic cover over the place it holds the gift card, so you could easily replace it with a photo after the card has been spent!!  
This little gift card holder will last long after the holidays to enjoy your photos.

Here is the inside of the "book".  I loved the little doillie with the Stamp on it, but you could also handwrite your message or journal on he doillie.
In this next photo, you see I added a photo of my own with the cute little clothespin.

Here is my decorated Back!

The 6X6 mini pad papers where awesome for this project.  There are so many coordinating choices and it was fun to put them together. 
The snowman is very simple to make with a clock at the bottom, a 1 1/2" circle punched for the center, and the metal rim tag as the top.   I used a marker to color the eyes, and also the carrot nose.  The stickles adds the perfect "Sparkle" to the nose! 
I hope you will try making some of these for the People on your Gift Card List-- they will enjoy getting a beautiful and EASY creation with their card.

Wishing you lots of Christmas Crafting.......
