It's July 25th. The Christmas in July day. Shops offer sales, etc. Can you believe just 5 months from now, it's Christmas time? Forget swimming pools and humidex readings, we'll be talking snow and wind chill!
So, in honour of Christmas in July, here's a little Christmassy item for you to check out:
Papercrafters are always looking for ways to pretty up a gift card, and I learned this gift card technique a few years ago.
It's a cute little wallet - style gift card holder.
This is what it looks like when the ribbon is unfolded and it is opened.
I couldn't find a gift card, new or used, so I put a copy card in the slot just to show you the wallet.
In the right pocket, I put a tag.
Here's a close up of this simple tag.
The patterned papers are a Christmas line from Best Creation - love the glittery ornaments!
This wallet style gift-card holder is created through origami. Yes, just simple folds and 1 cut to make it. I am working on a tutorial for it, and will post it later this week.
Meantime, if you are living somewhere where the heat is sweltering, like almost everywhere in North America right now, maybe thinking about Christmas can help you cool down!
Thanks for dropping by!
