Bugaboo Christmas Chaos Day 6

It's that time of year again...Catch the Bug (Bugaboo's) Christmas Chaos
A set of week-long Christmas challenges
to help you get your butt in gear for the holidays.

I made this gift card holder for my nephew's gift card

Here you can see the inside of it (with the gift card attached)

Day #6
Whip up some sort of holiday gift wrap - could be a gift tag, bag or treat tin...
Show us your wrap!

I used this cute WINTER PENGUIN TRIO mage from Bugaboo which can be found here.
All Christmas digis are on sale for 50% off 
until December 31st here in the Bugaboo shop

I used a 10" x 4" piece of cardstock as the base
Scored it at 3", 4" 5" and 8"
cut patterned paper smaller to leave an 1/8" border around
Cut a slit in the small folded piece in centre to allow gift card to slip in, and glue edges and bottom to hold it (so it doesn't all out)
You can also put a band around the holder to keep it closed (but since I have an image on the front I'm using velcro closure (which I have to dig out of my craft room, thank goodness there's still a couple of weeks before Christmas for me to find that)

Come on back to my blog each day this week as I play along.

If you play along with all 7 challenges you have chance 
to win some great prizes, 
and I've been quite lucky in the past, and hope this year is no exception.

Check out the Catch the Bug blog for all the details.
