Christmas Wishes wallets

Well, she's done it again... Gina of StampTV has created the easiest gift card holder and the tutorial is on StampTV's website for all to see and be inspired to create! I normally create my own designs, but I did use Gina's base gift card holder design. I love them - I created four little wallets in about 30 minutes! Gina gives the measurements of all the pieces and once they are cut, it's a breeze assembling them! What fun! I'm going to give my kids and their significant others cash in these adorable little treasures and used the cutest Ho Ho Ho paper (with matching/coordinating plaid paper) - two in red and two in green - from my stash along with a digital "Christmas Wishes" sentiment I created on my computer and cut out with a Spellbinders die. And they don't have to be just for the holidays... they can be for any occasion!

I'm entering my Christmas Wishes wallets in the following challenges:
