Stocking Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday! Today marks a new challenge week over at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge is to create a Christmas card. I decided to make a gift card holder for the challenge.



This was so much fun to make but also took me quite a bit of trial and error to get the size just right. I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the stocking. I found that the Suberboy boot on page 56 was the perfect shoe for this. I cut it once at 22 3/4" and then flipped the image and cut it out again . I then adhered the two matching sides together and left the top of the boot open for the gift card to slide in and out easily. For the cuff, I cut out a rectangle measuring 3 1/2" by 4" and folded it in half at 2". I adhered the back of the cuff to the stocking and used a piece of velcro for the front so the recipient can easily open up the holder to get the gift card. I just free hand cut the heel and toe pieces. I think it turned out so cute and am so happy with the end result. I hope you can play along with us this week at Paper Therapy. We would love to see what you create. :)
