Gift Card Beanie

I've had a very busy day (week, month...). It's crunch time and I'm trying to get all those nagging little projects done. Speaking of nagging, this one is for my MIL, lol!
This is a beanie gift card holder. The top swivels up to reveal the gift card underneath. It was a recent challenge at a stamping site I visit. I started with a 5" circle cut with my circle scissors plus. Then cut that circle in half, adhere one half to the back of the white scalloped strip (5 x 1.5), then use a brad to attach the second half-circle on. Decorate and insert a gift card. This design was inspired by the pretty, velvety gift card from wal-mart. When DH saw it, he said... "cool, did you make it". I love that he thinks I'm THAT talented :) The ribbon got a little messed up as I attempted to reposition it and it frayed a bit, but tough luck - I'm sure she won't even notice anyway! If I don't get a change to get back on before Christmas, please have a wonderful, safe and happy holiday with your family and friends!
