Hi Stampers. Today I’m showing you a gift card holder. It starts out with a piece of Soft Suede card stock 4″ x 10″. It was then scored at 3″, 4″, 5″ and 8″. The 3-4″ and 4-5″ sections get folded into a mountain fold and I used a piece of sticky strip at the very bottom to adhered those two bottoms of the mountain fold together and then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to trim off the very tip of the mountain fold. (Sticky strip was important to use here because it has a stronger hold.) This will be the section that hold the gift card – between those two pieced of card stock that were the mountain fold.
For the outside of the gift card holder, I cut two pieces of designer series paper (I used the some retired DSP I had – but you could use any DSP) one at 1.75″ x 3.75″ and one at 2.75″ x 3.75″. Two of the corners on the long side of each of these pieces gets corner rounded (I used the project life corner rounder for this).
For the inside of the gift card holder, I cut four pieces of designer series paper one at 1.75″ x 3.75″, one at 2.75″ x 3.75″ and two at 3.75″ x .75″. On the 1.75″ x 3.75″ piece of DSP gets corner rounded on the long side.
I then used a 2.75″ x 3.75″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock and rounded two corners on the long side. This will be where I write my message.
I adhered the DSP (and the Very Vanilla piece) to the gift card holder with snail adhesive.
I finished it off with a belly band. It is a strip of Soft Suede card stock 7″ x .5″. When wrapping this around and adhering it, I made sure the band was a little bit roomy, so that it will slide off and on easily – even when the gift card is included (which will make it thicker). I finished that off with a piece of Cajun Craze card stock punched out with the 1.25″ scallop circle punch and a piece of Very Vanilla card stock punched out with the 1″ circle punch. In the middle of that circle I stamped “Sending Many Thanks” from the Stampin’ Up! Petite Pairs stamp set in Soft Suede ink.
