Gift Card Holders (With MTC files shared)

This is another old post from my old blog that was seasonal that I wanted to share here.

One of the challenges on the MTC forum Christmas Challenges (back in 2010) was to create some gift card holders.  Well, I had quite a few different gift card holders already on my old blog at that time.  However, when I started looking, it didn't look like I had any or very few using MTC so I decided to take on that Challenge.

The Challenge was to make 3 different gift card holders.  I did the traditonal standby Christmas Stocking, a "gift bag" that I turned into a "santa bag" and a simple tri-fold gift card holder.  The "bag" or "Santa belly bag" can be used as a simple shopping bag.  It is also big enough to hold the bigger Itunes gift cards - especially if you use something like the fur that I used at the top of the bag. I shared the files I created on the MTC forums before Christmas 2010 so, if you are a member there, you may have already downloaded my files.  If you aren't a member or were not back then you may not have gotten these files so I am putting them here for your use.

They are .mtc files only as I haven't converted them into any other format.  So little time and so much to do!!  LOL  Hopefully, someone can find a use for some of them.  As always, I would love to see what you do with them should you choose to use them for a gift!  Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. Thank you very much! I'm new to MTC, so this helps me a lot.

  2. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Hands Cricut Freebies Search List, under the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa post on Jan. 15, 2011. Thanks again.

  3. Thanks but 2 of your links don't work,Great ideas x

  4. Hi Christine - Thanks for stopping by and letting me know that you had problems with my links. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. However, I have double checked the links and have been able to download the files I shared just fine. I even had another person check and they had no problems either. Finally, they have each been downloaded almost 50 times or more already and no other problems were reported so I think the problem may have been on your end or a glitch with cyberspace at the time you tried to download them. You might try to download again. Thanks.
