Christmas chaos day 2 Catch the bug / Gift Wrapped ABC

Monday December 2, 2013
 
Welcome to day 2 of the Christmas Chaos at Catch the bug  today's challenge is
Gift Wrapped ABC (Anything But a Card) 
Whip us some sort of Holiday Gift wrap, could be a gift tag, gift bag, treat tin or alternative gift wrap. Show us your wrap. 
 
I made a gift card holder. I have the MK envelope maker and thought why not make a gift card holder. I am pleased with the way it came out.  I think I need to make more of these. Looks like it will be a gift card Christmas this year.
I used the mini tag set from Bugaboo I did not want to size it too small so I cut the wording off the outer edge and used a portion of those words on the corner of the gift card. This envelope has a flap on the back like a regular envelope but I just placed the Applebee's card behind the envelope so you'd know what this envelope is and how big it is.
