Present Gift Card holder Using DoodleCharms

I wanted to make a gift card holder, but not the traditional square one, so after a few experiments and a couple of cuts I came up with this:

Once all the measuring was done, it was really easy!
I used the present from page 109 from the DoodleCharms Cricut Cartridge.
All sizes are 5 3/4.
My first cut was on purple card stock I used the black out feature
Second cut was the Present pattern paper which I cut the regular icon button.
Third cut was using the circle pattern paper which I cut using the shift plus the icon button which cut the bow and the tag, and then I cut it again on the purple card stock because I wanted my tag puprle.

I snipped the top of the present box and the bow off the tops and adhered the present top down, then I used the other bow and glued that down. When gluing the bottom of the present down, only glue the sides leaving a pocket for the gift card. Next stamp the tag, add your ribbon and your done!

Check out how it is really made!
