Punch-Art Santa Gift-Card Holder

Here's a great way to use an envelope. Fold the envelope in half. Cut the flap where the crease is from the fold. Seal the left-side flap, but leave the right-side flap unsealed to slide your gift-card into. Isn't he a cutey? Man, he looks real and I can hear him saying HO HO HO! All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up! The recipe is below. To order these great products, visit my 24/7 online store at and click on "Shop Now."
