Gift Card Holder from Paper

Gift Card Holder from Paper

I love giving gift cards and/or money as gifts. I found this fun way to make a gift card holder.

You can use Designer Series Paper (use double sided for a fun look) or make your own. Yes, make your own with your stamps. You can practice stamping designs, color combinations and it is just fun and creative. Very relaxing. You will use those stamps you have always wanted to use but did not know how to make for a card…this is beyond the card.

You begin with a 12″ by 12″ piece of paper. You will stamp both sides in colors you choose, I used Timeless Tulips stamp set from Stampin’ Up!. Pear Pizzaz was used in green stems, the pink I used was Blushing Bride. This stamp set has a matching punch.

Positive Thoughts stamp set, has a beautiful Fern that Used. This set has matching dies, I did not use the dies in this project. Check back again, you will see them later.

Measurements: 8-5/8″ x 9-7/8″ for paper. I cut with a paper cutter.

The long (Tall) way, fold this in half. You than will bring the bottom up to fold line and the top to the fold line…. You have four sections. Burnish well with bone folder.

Open up, fold in corners as shown in video.

You than fold in the end to meet in the middle

Now we are going to flip this over (see video) and bring up the ends at the points.

than have both end folded up. Keeping sides straight when folding over

We than are taking the ends and bending them into each other.

Fold in half to create gift card.

March…Spring is Coming

I have been under the weather. The season is changing…so thankful. I am moving slow but push myself to get out everyday walking. I always walk the dog but now I walk more when the weather is nice. Yesterday, it snowed here, but I still walked. I do a extra walk.

Creating new cards, need sympathy cards, thank you cards, get well card. I thought I had extra, I do not, wow, they are going out fast. I am behind on Birthday cards, too.

The above card is a mish match. A little of this and a little of that. I do it often. Save those scraps of paper….be it DSP (Designer series paper or plain cardstock that I have stamped. You stack ontop of each other, creates something unique. I also like vellum and I cut that out with punches or dies. I have them ready and pick them here and there. You can see I used a punch of a circle. I add embellishments, the bird I found in some embellishments I bought at dollar store. I have to stay away from dollar store, I purchase to much.

The happy Birthday is from a stamp set I truly love, Botanical Bliss Cling-Mount Stamp Set. It has matching dies.

This is a book mark using the dies. They have so many uses. I used the Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight. University of Michigan Colors. I love Stampin Up paper, you can find your school colors and create lasting memories. The bookmark has been used, so it is a little ratty, a memory I made to celebrate a special occasion.
