Make cute canning jar gift card holders-and $1,000,000 gift card

Hey everyone, thanks for coming by. I made these for my nieces a couple of years ago. We have 12 teenagers who are now in their 20's, and we give them a small Starbucks gift card.

They are small canning jars, with fake snow, a cute Santa hat in pink that you can make and then gift card of your choice. I however printed out cute little cards that said $1,000,000 on them just for giggles.
I decided to do pink, I bought pink felt, and white fur trim at Joann's I think...
Any color of felt would do...
You put a salad plate down on the felt, cut out the circle, then you cut a line from the outside circle to the inside point.  Overlap the felt till it makes a hat shape.  Glue together.
After it dries, glue the fur trim, sprinkle some snow on the hat.
I sprinkled fake snow inside the canning jar, put the gift card in the snow, added the lid, then added the finished Santa hat...I even cut out some little snowflakes with the scrapbook punch below out of sparkly paper and added that to the snow as well.
I chose pink font on my computer and printed out these cards on cardstock...actually I printed it out on one big piece and then cut them out afterwards.
Next I found these cute gingerbread girl tags at the link below. There were several cute tags and Christmas printables at this site....

there were boy tags as well at this site.
Playing along with these FUN parties today! Be sure to check out all their blog goodness!
