Gift Card Holder
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!
Today is my first official day as LateNightStampers Design Team Member, I was the guest designer last month and Mary Jo asked me to stay on and I happily accepted. This weeks LateNightStampers Challenge is Gift Card Holders. I spent alot of time last week messing around and looking at alot of gift card holders and I finally just winged it and made this one. I didn't follow any written tutorial but for this "Present Gift Card Holder". It was super simple, here is a pic of the inside:
I first used a piece of card stock 4 by 8 inches folded in half for the base. I used a circle punch to out a small opening at the top of one side. I then added a piece of DSP and some ribbon down the middle. I sealed the sides with some sticky tape. The top piece is a piece of card stock, 3 by 4-1/4 inch, folded in half. I attached it to the base just in the back with more sticky tape.
I added some DSP to the front of the flap and used some Velcro dots to hold it closed.
I made the "bow" with my small and large oval punches. I first punched three small ovals out of some red and baja card stock. I used the negative piece and punched the large oval out, giving me the pieces you see. I then layered them together. spreading them out and alternating them and used a small brad at the base to hold together. I slipped it under the edge of the DSP and glued.
I decorated the outside with a snowflake, a button and the sentiment is from the "Four Holidays" stamp set.
The gift card can just slide down inside or you can make a small "holder" for it like I did with some card stock and a slit punch. I think it turned out kinda cute!
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for coming by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
