Gift Holder- Christmas

All of my Christmas posts are a bit late because I took the month of December off. Here is a gift holder I made at my husbands request. The secretary at his work had bought the gift from the employees for their boss for Christmas. It wasn't an actual gift that could be wrapped but a paper gift card and pictures of what they were going to receive. The secretary asked if I could make something that they could use to present the gift. Since there were just papers and pictures wrapping it like a regular gift didn't work. But the papers were bigger than a gift card so the Cricut gift card holders wouldn't work either. When I looked thru the Cricut handbook I really liked the cuts on this mini album. I decided I could use adhesive to glue the edges together so it made pockets instead of album pages using the Pear and Partridge papers.

 Each edge has a different Cricut cut and makes the opening of the pocket. I used red tape to close the long edges of the pocket. I was then able to put the certificate, pictures and other info in each of the pockets. I used Close To My Heart hook and loop tape for the closure.
I cut the poinsettia with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and worked the petals with a stylus to add some dimension. I really wanted to add some bling to the center of the poinsettia but it was for my husbands boss who is a man I went for a pearl in the center instead. He and his wife really liked the gift and the gift holder so I was pleased.

  Happy Scrapping,
