Christmas Gift Certificate Holder - Criss Cross Card

Hi everyone! Are you all ready for the holidays?!? Only 9 more days - aaaah! I had an order for some gift certificates for Christmas, so I wanted to make a nice little presentation piece for the gift certificates. I used Beate's Criss Cross Card Tutorial found here on SCS. They went together really fast, but I did learn that you MUST use double sided paper for these or else you'll need to cut 2 DP squares. Once you cut the DP in half, it needs to be flipped over in order to fit the other side. (yes, I know that doesn't make ANY sense, but if you try it, you'll see). Instead of lots of extra bulk on the band, I went for a single piece of DP with a rub-on sentiment. I printed the inside pull out piece with the Gift Certificate info and taped it (with repositionable tape) over a piece of computer paper I had already run through the printer so I knew where the printing would line up. Thanks for stopping in and Happy HO Ho HOlidays!

very nice, Michele! I need to use rub-ons more- I forget I have them!
