Ok, here's my game...

I've made two gift card holders.
Leave me a comment guessing which one you think actually holds a gift card inside....and on Thursday morning I'll announced the winner along with pics of the insides of each and you'll see which one has the gift card in it!

First up...

I followed a fabulous tutorial by our very own Ryann!
I did change up my measurements some to make it a little larger.

I started off with the Twinkly Tidings Chilly Willy paper by TaDa.
And, because it's double sided, the inside of the gift card holder also has a lovely print.

I used Christmas List by Unity stamped in Not Quite Navy.
And added Ice Blue rhinestones inside the snowflakes for some sparkle.
I finished it off with white polka dot sheer ribbon!

Next up is a little tin:

This is one of the gift card tins from Michael's, they have them up near the cash registers.
After Christmas last year...I grabbed a bag full for .10 each! (I hope to do that again this year ~ they are perfect for gift cards, candy, jewelry, etc.)

This uses Fashionable from the Basic Grey Sultry Collection.
The pink scalloped piece is from the Sultry 6x6 pad.
I used mod podge to adhere the paper and to make a thin top coat sealant.

Next I used the super fun Olive/Sage Fuzzy/Center Dot Ribbon to go around the side of the lid. I used red line tape to ahere the fuzzy dot ribbon.

I used the Dangling Dazzlers stamp by TaDa. I used markers (Green Galore and Pink Passion) to color the stamp.
I used a quickie glue pen to adhere Pixee Stix Raspberry and Stampendous Melon glitters.
Each ornament is 'hanging' from rhinestones, either Hot Pink or Yellow (which is a yellow-green color).

So, there are the two options for your comment.
You can put #1 or #2.......... 'paper' gift card holder or tin......
I'll draw a winner from all of the correct guesses and post it sometime Thursday morning!

Here's what you could WIN!!

Clearsnap Sparkling Amethyst glitter AND a JenMarie's Cupcake Owl stamp!
Yep, that's a little owl I drew and Johanna of Odd Bird Planet turned it into a stamp!
Be sure to check in tomorrow...I'll show you are FABU card that Tiffany made with this little cutie!
