Christmas Gift Card Holders

Here's what I've been up to this week

I made these quick and easy gift card holders

I needed something fast so I looked on Pinterest and there  
were several of  these ideas out there.  
basically , the present bottom is a piece of paper cut 7 1/2 x 4 1/4 then 
score at 3 3/4
The top is 4 1/4 x 3 folded in half
and it's held together by a brad.  I also used ribbon to finish it off  by tying a bow.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting :)
