Paper Maniac Decoration a Day ~ Holiday Ornament

Hi everyone!! This month at Paper Maniac we are providing you with daily Holiday Inspiration. Today, I am showing you these great gift card/money ornaments. I buy a ton of gift cards during the holidays and I usually end up placing the envelopes on the tree until I see the recipients. These little ornaments will look so much better decorating the tree and the recipients will have a nice keepsake for their own tree.

I used Nestabilities to cut all the Scallops and Circles for this ornament. I cut the red cardstock with a large scallop and used a large circle for the Eskimo Kisses (Basic Grey) DSP. I stamped the image using JustRite Something Sweet Borders & Centers Round 2-3/8 and used a medium circle to cut it out. I mounted that on green cardstock cut with a medium scallop. and centered this on the the larger scallop. I cut another large scallop and cut that in half, used score tape along the edge and put that on the back to hold the gift card or money.
