Seed Packet Holiday Gift Card Holders

Hello! How have you all been doing? Have you been able to get all of your holiday shopping finished? I sure have not, but there are a few more days left, right?! I’m making holiday cards today…finally! I’ll share them with you hopefully on Christmas Eve! I was able to get my gift card holders finished and here they are…

I made 16 gift card holders! Yeah, we give a lot of gift cards. It’s super easy and everyone is please to be able to shop for those items they really want. It may not be as personable to give money or gift cards, but the cards or money adds up allowing the recipient to get those big ticket items on their lists. Well, that’s how I like to think of it! So, here are a few of the designs I made…

Here, I used Holiday Lights, Background Basics: Chevron Stripes, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Simply Chartreuse cardstock, Pure Poppy cardstock, Seed Packet die, Limitless Layers (pinking circle die), and a small tag. Everything was stamped with True Black ink.

For this design, I used Happy Day, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Stylish Sentiments: Holiday, Damask Snowflake die, Happy Day die, Christmas Baker’s Twine, Seed Packet die, True Black ink, White cardstock and a shipping tag. The patterned paper is by Webster’s Pages (Sweet Season collection).

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Limitless Layers dies, True Black ink Lemon Tart, White cardstock, Bermuda Bay ink (Stampin’ Up!), and small shipping tag. Patterned paper is by Webster’s Pages.

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Pure Poppy cardstock, Fine Linen cardstock, Limitless Layers dies, True Black ink, and small shipping tag.

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Pure Poppy cardstock, True Black ink, Signature Greetings, Wreath for All Seasons, and small shipping tag.

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, Simply Chartreuse cardstock, True Black ink, Pure Poppy ink, and the small shipping tag is on the flap of the seed packet die!

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag CollectionTrue Black ink, Christmas Baker’s Twine, and a small shipping tag. The vellum (that’s right it’s vellum) is by Webster’s Pages (Sweet season collection).

Seed Packet die, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, True Black ink, small shipping tag, and some red tinsel. The patterned paper is by Webster’s Pages.

All of the tags were easy to assemble and create. The seed packet dies are a perfect size to add gift cards or even tri-folded cash! So, if you still need a last minute gift, a gift card is perfect along with a handmade gift card holder! Hopefully, I’ll be back on Saturday with a post to share my super easy, one-layer, holiday cards! I’m making about 30 cards, so wish me luck! I’m hoping to finish them within 1-2 hours!

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season! I’m being a UPS stalker today waiting for a gift to be delivered. I’m not sure if the box is going to arrive with all of the marketing material on the outside so it’s a huge giveaway of what could possibly be inside. Don’t you hate that?! Anyway, I’m off to make my cards. Take care!

Gorgeous! Thanks for this year full of awesome tips.
A big wish from Italy: have a very Merry Christmas and a New Year of peace and health

CristinaDecember 22, 2011 - 2:09 pm

Gawwwgeous. I still have a few of these to make myself, so this is perfect inspiration. And yes on the boxes! Stores should have an option that you can get things shipped in blank boxes, especially at this time of year! Hope you have a wonderful holiday, Ashley.

Exceptionally nice gift card holders! Love all the combos of papers and embellishments you used. Good luck on your 30 cards. I was feeling anxious cause I had four to make this afternoon. Hee! :)

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE these card holders! You ROCKED these! I was late to the party on the seed packet. You know, sometimes you like somehing, but wonder if you would use it. What was I thinking? I did put it on my December order, which is on its way, but not in time for Christmas :-(
I LOVE your amazing idea!
Thanks for sharing
Merry Christmas to you and McArthur and you whole family

Those are seriously beautiful! Puts my store bought ones to absolute shame! :-)

Ashley, these gift card holders are so cute. You know, they really are the perfect gift. What’s worse than getting an ugly sweater that you will never wear? And that money was wasted. People of all ages love to shop for themselves and get something they really want . I’m try so hard not to have to have the seed envelope die! LOL Merry Christmas!
