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.Product List
