Hi!! Here is a Christmas in July project for Sweet Sassy Diva! I discovered this tag pocket from Going Places when I first got my Gypsy and did not have a ton of carts and figured out how to size it to fit a gift card. Lucky for me I save everything!! I still had the file from 18 months ago!
I sized the tag pocket at 7.03w x 3.53h. I am able to fit four of them on a 12 x 12 mat.
I used this paper from the Deja Views Fair Isle Christmas Pad from 2010. I like this paper because the pattern is subtle and doesn't take away from my little elf, and at the same time has some Christmas details in it.
I scored on the tic marks and used my ATG gun to glue it together. The first time I made one, I glued the flaps to the outside ~ oops!
I found this cute little elf pulling a wagon from Jolly Holidays and sized him to 2 inches tall (2.70w x 2.0h). I put him and his layers (copied 3 times) onto my mat. It wasn't until later I realized that I cut out 4 tag pockets and only 3 elves!!
I loaded my paper (regular old cardstock)...
and cut them out.
I did not have skin colored paper so I cut out white paper and inked it with Stampin' Up Blush ink.
I put a PK face on!
I assembled all the pieces
I added some stickles to jazz him up a bit!
I cut out the "for you" from Doodletype at 2.29w x 2.05h.
Here is a cute little gift card holder for that special someone next Christmas!!
