Robot & Princess Gift Card Holders

Thanks Kristina for the great instructions and template for these gift card holders! Like Kristina, I started my gift card holders with kraft paper. I love kraft paper. This project is also for the Verve "Gettin' Krafty" challenge (VVPP06). Kristina's instructions didn't call for Velcro closures, but I added them.

I made these gift card holders, because we were invited to a birthday party today at my friend
Rebecca's house. Her son and daughter were celebrating their 7th and 5th birthdays. My sweet hubby started getting a sore throat the other day. I started getting a sore throat last night. I didn't sleep well, either. Kalino had been looking forward to the party because it was a pirate/costume party. He had his pirate costume ready. He was an upset little "Jack Sparrow" when I told him we weren't going to the party, because we didn't want to spread our virus around. Rebecca was going to have crafts for the kids and she was serving Hawaiian food. Rebecca and her husband are like my Sweetie and I...we love Hawaii!
