Handmade holiday gift card holders

I am back to show you my design for some handmade holiday gift card holders I'll be selling at some upcoming holiday marts.

I designed these using the Kraft Scallop Edge cards.
I trimmed them and glued them until they were in this fun pocket shape.  I used Liquid glass to stick the card edges together to form the pockets.

I used the Believe Level 2 paper packet, our striped ribbon (which was way too wide- I cut it down the middle line and sealed the edges with liquid glass... yes this was tedious and way more work than a sane person would attempt... but I wanted thinner  I sprayed the entire project with our spray pens filled with desert sand ink and water, plus edged my papers with chocolate, giving it  more of a "distressed" look so that if some of my ribbon unravels... it looks like it's supposed to be like that.
I also used some of our pins to hold the "christmas cheer" sentiment.  some cranberry waxy flax tied through a bling button from our Bling Assortment pack ties it all together.  I cut the tag using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
I have about 11-12 of these put together.
Thanks for looking!
