Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - Create A Gift Card Holder

I am really enjoying all the Christmas in July themes this month!  Today Pixie Dust Studio has an exciting challenge for you, "Create A Gift Card Holder".   After wracking my brain, I really had a lot of fun with this one.  I could not choose between Claire and the Nutcracker so I used both!   My gift card holder also doubles as an ornament.   Gee, I could give everyone gift cards this year and decorate my tree at the same time!

I'll bet you're wondering, "how this can be a gift card holder"?  Here is a view of the back of my "ornaments":
I also had an opportunity to recycle all the old coasters I've collected from restaurants, I knew they would come in handy one day.

About my "cards":

I hope you will join us and play along with the challenge this week here!  For more inspiration, please visit the other Pixie's blogs listed on my sidebar.

Thanks for visiting!
