Krazy Crafting Crew - Gift Card Holder Blog Hop, Sunday 11/3

It is that time of year again when Santa is looking for the perfect gift. And how often do you hear (or wish you heard!?) "gift cards, please." Gift cards sure make shopping easy -- but what do you do if you want to make the gift a little more personalized?

Well, if you were a member of the Krazy Crafting Crew or if you'd like to follow our lead, you will have made some gift card holders to have on hand to make your gift giving all the more special this holiday season.

On this very special Hop hosted by Janet Royer, you'll find crafters' ideas to make your own VSGC's (*Very Special Gift Card) Holders.  Be sure to hop on through and leave comments to be eligible for blog candy sponsored by our hostess. 

My project:
For my project, I made this adorable "library card jacket" stuffed with a sweet reindeer that holds a gift card. The cut is by Silhouette's Online Store. I added the googly wobble eyes, the small pom-poms at the holly and the sparkly pom for the nose.  The holly is punched using a Martha Stewart punch. I tied on baker's twine and a darling jingle bell.
 
Your Next Stop:
 
Don't miss it! Your next stop is with MIRANDA at Nana's Scrap Spot.
 
Blog candy:
 
You'll be eligible to win a Close To My Heart stamp set (MSRP $17.95), donated by our Hostess, if you'll comment on every post in this Hop, so don't miss any. Here is the full line up:
 
 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please come back to join the Krazy Craftin' Crew on December 1st when the plan is to show off a Desk Set of some sort that we've made.
