Hi everyone! How is Tuesday treating you so far? Good I hope.
I wanted to share with you a gift card holder that I made all by myself, no tutorial, no template. Probably not the most difficult of tasks, but I was pretty pleased with it.
It came about because I recently ordered the Scallop Envelope Sizzix Die, which I knew was only small, but I was disappointed to find that is was only a few millimeters short of fitting a gift card :o( I should have checked this out before ordering it maybe!
So, time to sort one out for myself.
I cut a piece of textured Concord Crush card to 23cm by 9cm, then scored at 1cm and 12cm along the longest side. Fold and run the Bone Folder over these, then run a length of Sticky Strip along the 1cm tab and fold round and stick down. I enclosed the bottom by popping in two Eyelets with my Crop-o-dile, and then tied some 1/2" Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon through the holes. I used the 1" punch on the top edge to make a grab hole. I used Pear Pizzazz cut 10cm by 7.5cm for the insert, and using the gift card as a guide cut two slits at opposite corners to hold the gift card in place. I topped it off with one of the Four Frames stamped images with a sentiment from So Happy For You, a retired SAB set, and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.
A pretty quick and useful make. It adds a nice personal touch to something which can sometimes be seen as a non-personal gift, though sometimes gift cards are the only way to go :o)
I hope you find this item and my (hopefully understandable) instructions of use to you.
Let me know what you think of my creation by leaving a comment below - and if you'd like to have a workshop in your home, then this is one of the projects we can make along with some cards. Just email me for information at firstname.lastname@example.org
