Easy Halloween Gift Card Holders

Tomorrow is Halloween and I have a last minute project to share! I am not one to partake in paper crafts but I do watch quite a few Youtube videos on the subject, which is a whole post in-and-of-itself! About a month ago I came across a video for a cute little Paper Wallet demonstrated by Stamping Holly and I was hooked! Never having worked with paper before, I found this particular project so stinking easy that I'm sure ANYONE could throw this together in less than 30 minutes. I made these paper goodies for my daughter and her college friends - I'm a bit sad not to have any little people to help me celebrate Halloween this year. These small wallets are great for holding fun photos, memories of past Halloweens and even gift cards - which is what I added to mine. If you are knowledgeable about the paper crafting world this is I'm sure old news to you, but if you've not tried paper crafting give it a go - these wallets are a great start. All you need is a double sided piece of 12X12 inch scrapbooking paper, I found this cute Halloween print from my local JoAnn's Fabric & Craft store. I will definitely be making my kids and their sweeties Christmas wallets to add in their stockings, loaded with great photos, memos and gifts cards from their favorite haunts. They are a great way to express your creative side in a practical way! ENJOY!

Here's how I decorated my mini-paper wallets. Along with 'tags' for pictures and memos.

As E was headed back to school I threw Halloween candy and goodies - socks, spider rings, wax vampire teeth & lips.....etc. - into orange bags I just happen to have on hand. They look a bit sad but somehow I'm thinking she and her friends didn't care what the bags looked like! 

Don't forget to check out Holly's Youtube video at Stamping Holly.
Get busy and have a safe and fun Halloween with your little ones! Or BIG ONES!
