Gift card holders!

Oh those last minute crafty items. The last two evenings I've been working on making gift card-ish holders for J & his parents. We're big on gift cards in our family.. just so. much. easier. There are real gifts too, but they've already been wrapped.

For my MIL: a skinny silver tin that opens to hold a purty old olive gift card holder. I (finally!) used my scallop edge punch, and I love the look. Somehow I ended up with the scallops un-aligned, but eh, it looks fine. The gift card is tension-held in place, and I've ended up taking the ribbon off the sides. The fit is tight enough to hold the card until Thursday. Next time I'll emboss the tin or fancy it up a bit more, but I do like it as is.

For my FIL: A matchbook-esque holder using fun Frosty Day paper to hold his gc.
I have a few gift certificate-ish things for J. I love using the Top Note Bigz Die, so I made this for one of his stocking stuffers:
For J's gift from my parents (can you tell I'm on a Close to Cocoa color kick? :D)

And finally, to hold some hockey (not NHL, boo) tickets:
