Winter Hat Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone, thanks for hopping from A Card A Day Blog.  The theme this week is gift card holders and my is a winter hat.  Just in time as we are suppose to be getting out first snow.  These are really quick and easy to put together.

For the hat part cut a 5" circle.  I cut one out of white cardstock and one out of pattern paper (my pattern paper is flimsy that is why I use the cardstock). Cut each circle in half.
For the bank cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/8" x 2 and a piece of designer paper 5 1/8" x 1 7/8".  Glue these two together and fold in half.  The bank will support the gift card on the bottom.

Line all three pieces up on the left hand side and punch a through the band (front of card only) both of the half circles.  You can use wither an eyelet or a brad to hold everything together.  For my holder I used a cute snowflake eyelet.  With the front of the hat up add a strip of adhesive to the back of hat and attach to the back of the band. 

Since my hat is in boy colors I just added a blue pom pom to the to top.  You can add anything - flowers, buttons, feathers.  This is a really easy pattern to use anytime of the year.

This is what it would look like open with the a gift card inside. (I add a small bit of adhesive on the inside when I place my gift card to hold it inside.)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget that Lucy Kelleher will be back to inspire you.
