Merry Monday Hat Challenge

The challenge at Merry Monday this week is to use a funky hat on your Christmas card. I decided to make my entire card a hat. It's a gift card holder and super easy to make. I can't remember where I first found the directions for making these. I have them printed out and in a binder, but there's no reference to where it came from. Here's my hat.


To create the hat you need a circle about 5 inches in diameter, cut in half. A punched strip is added to one half circle, then the other half circle is attached to just the border piece with a brad. I added the snowflake medallion along with the brad. Some glittery stars were added to the hat part. Here's the inside.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a couple of stars. The gift card slides in between the white strip and the blue part. When the top part is closed, the gift card is hidden.

You can see details of the Merry Monday challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by,
