Gift Card Purse

Hello.  This is going to be a short posting.

For those last minute gift if you can't think of what to get her/him, a gift card might be just the thing.  So much easier and actually much preferred so she/he can so buy whatever she/he wants--rather than what you think she wants...tee hee.  I tried to make this gift card holder to look like a purse (so this is for a 'her'...tee hee).

This gift card holder is based on the double-tag card style that you can find the tutorial HERE at Marianne's blog.  I used a smaller circle, 9 inches in diameter, to reduce the card to 4½" x 5½", a better proportion for a gift card holder than the original size.  This is easy to make--the trick is to use a double-sided designer cardstock.  Also I only bothered to make one tag.

This Magnolia image I'm featuring is from an older Magnolia collection:

- Tilda Goes Shopping from the Bon Voyage Collection 2010.

The stamp for this image is currently out of stock at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, although the mini version is available there.  Magnolia-licious has other equally adorable images, both full-size and minis.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies and other craft supplies.
