Ho Ho Ho!

When my grandson gets a gift of money or a gift card his reaction is always, "oh, yeah....!" Even at the age of 5, he has figured out that this means he can get something he picks out himself!  Pretty fantastic.
So when I saw the challenge at Crafty Creations was a Gift Card Holder and over at There She Goes the challenge was "KIDS", I knew I could easily combine the challenges!

I used, yes, once again, SEI Glitzmas paper. The two-sided heavy patterned paper worked perfectly for this project.  I tri-folded it and cut the pocket for the inside card holder. I ran ribbon through and around the front of the pocket to hold the metal buckle.
Ont he outside, I used an old image I had of the snowman (sorry, no idea where it came from) and colored it with Copics markers. Added a bit of dimension with white fluffy paint, and gave him a star cookie button.
My grandson will understand the sentiment, for sure!
