With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to share a super easy project perfect for when you are giving a gift card or money. This time of the year I know I don’t have a lot of extra time, but this can be made in minutes. You can also decorate mini bags throughout the year for birthdays, weddings graduations and other special occasions.
To create the outside of the gift card/money holder:
Cut 3 different sizes of snowflakes from the patterned paper. Be sure to use sharp, small scissors so that you have nice clean lines. I recommend the Cutterbee scissors. I own 3 pairs because I am always temporarily misplacing a pair or two and I don’t like to use anything else.
Adhere largest snowflake to the bag using a Glue Dot. Add the next smallest snowflake to the center of the large snowflake using Pop Dots for dimension. Add the smallest snowflake to the top using a Glue Dot. Add a rhinestone to the center of the smallest snowflake.
Add the sentiment sticker or rub-on to the bag. On my project I used a clear sentiment sticker, but rub-ons work just as well.
To create the inside of the gift card/money holder:
Cut a rectangle from the same snowflake paper to fit snugly in the bag.
Cut a small rectangle of black cardstock and adhere to the top.
Add rhinestones to the black cardstock.
Use Glue Dots to adhere your money or gift card to the snowflake paper.
