The base of the GC holder is from the CM Art Philosophy Cart. I think it was meant to be a card tag but since I wanted to use it to hold a GC I had to weld two rectangles from the George and Basic Shapes cart to serve as flaps to make the pocket to hold a GC. I used my Gypsy to accomplish this task.
Before I glued the flaps to form the pocket, I attached a printed cardstock cut from George and Basic Shapes cart to the front. Then I stitched the edges of the cardstock using my new toy, the Janome Sew Mini sewing machine I mentioned yesterday. I'm still getting used to this machine especially the corners, but I'm happy to report that I'm loving it!
After I glued the flaps I then added a doily from the CM Art Philosophy cart, cut in gold shimmery cardstock and embossed with the Textile CB folder. The tag is from the Cake Basics cart, stamped in white with sentiment and snowman from Studio G. I added a homemade stick pin to one side of the tag. I also used homemade crinkle ribbon, twine from The Twinery and a gold mini bell.
Here's another pic of the GC tag holder with a Coldstone GC to give you an idea how big this GC holder is.
