Birthday Tag Gift Card Holder - Thrifty Thursday "Circles" with My Creative Time

Good Morning!  Today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time and the theme is "Circles".  Thrifty Thursday is when the design team makes a project with their scraps.  I picked through my scraps and I chose to make a gift card holder out of the Scallopped tag from Emma's Tag Dies.

 I layered the patterned paper on top of the bottom half of the tag and sewed up the sides with my machine.   A little bit of glue along the bottom insures the gift card will not slip out.   The picture on the left is the back of the tag.  The Sentiment is from It's All About You stamp set and the Arrow is from the Capture Frame die set.

 I used two of the dies from the Build A Banner set for the "mini tag" and the cupcake is from Anyday Bingo and Crossword.

I cut circles with several size punches and glued them on before I did my sewing.  The Sentiment is from Celebrate Good Times stamp set.
