Gift card purses

Guess what we did today? You'd be right if you answered, shopping.
I think we are finally done now. I just have to get hubby a few things. I am going to go shopping with Sharon tomorrow. I will pick up a few stocking staffer's, because we know we can't leave every thing to Santa ;)

Talk about Stockings. Kristy and her friends exchanged gifts today. Her girlfriend gave Kristy a huge stocking. So our stocking prank continues.
When we were out today hubby found a 6' tall stocking. He so wanted to get it and put it with the others and then tell the girls that they had to fill it for him. Such a joker.I got in a bit of crafting today, Yeahhhh. Every year I make gift card holders. You can check them out on my YouTube channel Here. Well this year I found these ones. They are adorable. I changed it up a bit, I added ribbon for the handle as I liked it better. These have quite a bit of room inside. You could probably fit some treats in here as well.

Here is the first one I made. They called for paper handles. I didn't like them as much as they look funky. Plus my trimmer is dull, can you tell? I also did a manly gift card holder. I made these for father's day. I had one left over, but not completely finished. So I just added the insides and put the sentiment on it.
Here is the inside. There is even a place to hold money, like in a real wallet. I told my daughters I should put some fake money in it. Fake wallet....fake money, teehee.
So onto my day:

Shopped again. I was so tired today. When we came home I took 2 naps. I keep feeling like I am getting a cold and then the next day nothing. It has been like this for weeks now. I don't mind as long as I don't get a cold. That would suck, just at Christmas.

I was hopping to get my Christmas cards and parcels in the mail, but that didn't happen today. I have one more thing to get done and off they go. I don't know why but this year I am not stressing about it. That is so not like me. I stress about everything.

Hope everyone had a creative Wednesday, I did ;)

  8. Tracy,
    Love the little gift card holders. Especially the wallet.
    I am the one with the Christmas time cold--hopefully on the mend finally.
    I need to run out and get a few stocking stuffers.
    Can hardly wait to see my baby--her dad is off to Seattle tomorrow to pick her up and bring her and all her stuff home, since she heads to Vienna, Austria for a semester in Jan.
    Hope you are having a great week.


  9. Love the gift card purses, too cute! I hope you don't sick for Christmas either. Last year when Ty, my 10 yr. old, woke up Christmas morning and ended up in the bathroom every 1/2 hour throwing up. He tried all day to act like he was okay, he was such a trooper though. Crossing my fingers that doesn't happen again this year, three of them have colds at the moment.
