I love this month’s Stamp of the Month Progressive Challenge Image Gift Stack Teddy BearSOTM Dec CloseI have him printed in a few sizes and plan to play some more, but for today, I have created a gift card holder on a giant tag. And I think I love it!

I wanted a short but cute sentiment for this project, and I decided that one form the new Bird Brain – Jingle Bell Birdbrain Chick fit perfectly.

You can’t see it from the picture, but the gifts have Wink of Stella on some and Glossy Accents on the bottom gold one (to look like gold foil) so it is pretty shimmery.FTHS DEC SOTM Front copyI am sending a fun gift card to my little guy in Rhode Island (formally in England for those of you who have heard me talk about him and know his dad is in the AF) and I wanted to have a fun “package” for it.  I created the gift card holder with some cardstock then attached it the back of the tag with ribbon behind it. By creating a circle to coordinate with the front and punching a couple of holes (like button holes), I was able to thread the ribbon and tie a bow so the card holder stays shut. Once it is untied and pulled through the bottom hole, it will open that flap up to reveal the prize!FTHS DEC SOTM Back copy

I am definitely going to try this again as it makes for pretty cool holder.
