Halloween Countdown - Day 5 1/2

So my darling daughter went to bed extra early tonight which actually gave me the opportunity to complete more than one project...yeah!!

Here's a little Halloween project for those times when you might want to give a little something to celebrate the holiday, but you just don't want to give candy... Maybe you have a co-worker without a sweet tooth (I'm sure they exist). Maybe you have a family member who's diabetic.

Anyway, here is a little gift card holder - great place to put a five dollar coffee card or a movie card to go see the latest and greatest horror flick just in time for Halloween!

The sleeve slips right over the holder so you can decorate it as you like and it just comes right off - no need to break or tear anything to get at the "treat" inside. Decorate it however you like. I've used a 2" strip of Halloween print paper to form the band and then added a purple ribbon and a tag with a stamped image. A little bat brad adds a finishing touch to the tab.

If you would like pdf of the template for the gift card holder send me an email at graphixgirlliluAThotmailDOTcom. Two will fit on an 8.5x11-inch size piece of cardstock.

Supplies: Cardstock, Patterned paper (Carolee's Creations), Stamp (SU! Batty for You), Punches (SU! and Paper Shapers), ribbon, brad (Making Memories), Ink (SU!).
