Snowflake ornament as gift card holder

Man ! It started to be difficult to find new idea everyday until Christmas' eve !
Yet I still had another one...

I made a hang-able 3D snowflake where you could slip a gift card into it...

I use once again my Cricut with the Winter Lace cartridge for the design. I cut 4 identical snowflakes and 4 shadows at size 5 1/2" into Christmas papers (Recollections). After gluing every snowflake with its shadow, I fold them in half and glue first two half of two snowflakes together and did the same with the other two snowflakes. I glued then only the edges to create a 3D object, but I let an opening on the top large enough for a gift card...
You could attach a little name tag on it if you plan to decorate your tree with a bunch of them...

For now I have no idea of what I would create for tomorrow ! So stay tune to see if I will fullfil my personal challenge... and don't forget to comment and follow to enter the giveaway !


  1. this is lovely with the red. it would be fun on the tree too.

  2. Love that you can use this for an ornament and a gift card holder! I can't believe how creative you've been with all these designs!

  3. Great idea - to late for this year, but next year I am going to do this and put the either a tree or some object that lends itself to hanging items on it and use your name tag idea. We have several grandchildren and great grandchildren that we always give gift cards and this will be a great way to display them and let them find theirs.

  4. WOW! This is so original! So far I'm lovong all your creations.
