I have been having so much fun creating things with the goodies in my “Classic Christmas Vintage Kit”. “Real” Vintage goodies, well that’s extra fun! I decided to use some of the things in my kit to create some special gift card holders .
I cut the little stocking below out of some red felt and did a little stitching, before starting the fun part… embellishing with the vintage goodness from the kit.
For this card holder I reached in to my “to alter” bin in my storage closet. There are a number of different shapes and sizes of these tins out there, and many of them would work perfectly for gift card holders. I used one of the vintage book pages for the front of mine. I *LOVE* this image, don’t you?
Using these vintage treasures, certainly tends to make one feel nostalgic. ( well, it certainly does me). Nostalgic enough that it got me started looking through photos of Christmas’s past. I had to share this photo with you. It’s our boys when they were little, and it makes me smile!! Weston ( red head on the left) is now 29, Jarad ( the little guy) is now 25.
Here’s to another year of wonderful Christmas memories to cherish.
