Christmas Gift Card Holder for Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers and good luck to all of you who have joined from the WW Challenges with the blog candy.
This weeks challenge at Winter Wonderland is by Danielle and she has chosen to get us all thinking.  The challenge to create a Christmas Gift Card holder.  Having never actually needed to make one of these, Danielle was very kind and located us some tutorials and ideas.  So being surrounded by so many ideas it was really difficult to choose just one.  So I made two.  One for a child and one for an adult.  

Our Sponsor this week is the Stamp Barn, so pop on over and check out the other DT inspiration.  Don't forget the DT candy on offer, some linked to this challenge also and mine here

The little boot was just a case of using a template and then decorating, where as the square one was a little bit more technical.

I did not think that these would fit into any other challenges but surprisingly enough the little boot fits into

Cupcake Craft Challenge 88 - Don't be square and this definitely is not square

Here is the little boot
The flowers and the bauble's are in the kit I got from the Hobby House, so cute.

Here is the inside

Here is the adult one
The ribbon from another present recycled, the little tag is an MSE sentiment, backed with some red paper and I used some really thin wire to tie it on and then twirled the wire around a ground peg.  The large scallop circle is cut four times and then folded and attached to the back, the front folds overlapping and held together with the ribbon.

The inside
and a close up of the little tag

This will post again whilst I am at work, well it did work last week so fingers crossed it did this week too.  I will again link this evening to the challenges.

Have fun crafting

These are both fab Kate. I love the boot and the way the square one opens. Much more complex than mine and a lovely pressy. Marianne x
