here's the really cute part....

Tag open w gift cardthis is where you can write your message along side that perfect tree shaped greeting!

So, you purchase a nice mug, wrap, beribbon, add this tag & pop in a gift card--not only does the recipient have something fun to open --they also have a gift card for spending...AND, they think you're a genius for creating this tag/gift card holder combo! Does it get any better?

This design is really 2 pieces--the backing & then the smaller piece scored in the middle & slicing off a diagonal piece. Looks like a million bucks but very simple.

The trick is to adhere the smaller piece to the backing with Tear & Tape around the sides & bottom edge so there's plenty of room to insert the gift card without it sticking to the tape.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by next week--we're taking a one-week break from our 6 Weeks of Christmas for something special...come check it out on Tuesday.
