Well, a few days ago I told you that I would show you the gift card holders that I made for my friend’s birthday, so here we go!
This first one I sort of made up as I went along
I started with a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″
Then score 3″ in from each end, and also in the middle (at 5 1/2″)
Fold at the score lines, so you get a ‘W’ shape.
Put adhesive along the bottom 2 outside pieces , adhering them all together (I used our red line sticky tape – no worry about it falling apart!)
Using your small circle punch, punch a 1/2 circle at the top of the middle section (to pull the gift card out). You’ll have to punch hard – going through 2 layers of cardstock!
Then, slit open the centre fold, and insert the gift card.
Finally – decorate as you like – I used some pretty paper and ribbon left over our Sale-a-bration!.
Here, you can see how the ribbon unties, and there’s the gift card in the centre!
For this next gift card holder, I used a tutorial made by the talented SU! demonstrator Lorri Heiling; the tutorial can be found here http://stampingaddict.blogspot.ca/search/label/SWAK
It’s a super cute holder, especially since I tucked a Starbucks gift card inside 🙂
I used Whisper White cardstock as the base, embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. For the ‘sleeve’ in the middle, I used Close to Cocoa card stock, embossed with the Stripes embossing folder. I used the NEW Layered Labels stamp set with the matching Apothecary Accents Framelits die, popped up with dimensionals on top over the super cute 1/2″ Scallop Dots Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler.
These were such fun to make, I will definitely be making more!
