Gift Card Holder- Great Christmas Idea

I have been trying to think of how to present a gift card I have for a special someone's birthday that is coming up. So, imagine my surprise when I was blog-surfing this morning to come across Jules' Gift Card holder! I went and had a look at the tutorial that she had followed, from Lauren Meader and figured it out fairly quickly. I made the gift card holder below.

Now, I didn't want the recipient knowing what gift card I have for them, so I popped my university ID card in to show you how it works. To make the flap stay closed, I went to our fridge and pulled down an advertising magnet that we got in the mail... I cut a small piece off and adhered it with SU! Sticky Strip. The magnets aren't particularly strong, just enough to keep it closed. The card stocks I used are Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake and Vanilla, the DSP is Elegant Soiree, and the stamp set is a retired hostess set called the best is yet to come.
I don't tend to give many gift cards to people during Christmas, or for their birthdays, I generally search for the perfect gift for ages before finding something, but when it is something that has everything, it makes it a bit more difficult. If you have a lot of gift cards to give this year, why not whip up some of these, they are super quick to make!
Are you as surprised as I am that this wasn't for any challenges?
