Christmas Gift Card Holders

Happy Monday, Stampers! Today I will show you just a few really neat gift card holders. The first one isn’t so Christmas like but it’s for my friend who loves yellow.

This card and the next two were made using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits. This is another one of those super handy die sets that you must have. You may notice that I also used the new Stitched Framelits. Love those! I forgot to mention that I also used them on some of my gift tags on Friday.

I used This Christmas Specialty DSP on this one. Love the music notes! I also used the Stitched Framelits with Oh, What Fun Stamp Set.

Again I used This Christmas Specialty DSP and then Cherry Cobbler Cardstock for the poinsettia. The flower was made with the Festive Flower Builder Punch. That is another MUST HAVE punch. I used Gold Glimmer Paper for the center.

This card holder is a bit different – here it is on the front…

Now open it up…

Really cool, huh! Once again I used that wonderful Candy Cane Lane DSP with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set. Some bright Silver Glimmer Paper stars to add to the falling snow. 🙂

Directions for Gift Card Holder:

Cut paper 4 1/4″ x 11″;  Score at 3″, 5 1/2″, 8″;  Do Not fold on score lines yet!  Using your Stampin’ Trimmer cut 3/8″ from top of center score line (that would be the 5 1/2″ line) to 3/8″ from bottom of that line. Now fold on your score lines so that the slit score is in the center. Using Tear and Tape adhere the two center pieces – careful to put the tape only on the edges and not the slit side. (Ha, ha…you laugh!) Use a 1″ circle punch to make a place to pull the gift card out (see photo). Now you are ready to decorate to your hearts content!

You can tie the booklet together (as shown) or use a belly band and incorporate it into your design. We tried both Baker’s Twine and ribbon. I think I’d rather incorporate a belly band next time.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these gift card creations. I sure enjoyed making them!

I’ll have a non-Christmas post on Friday. I’m sneaking in a wedding card. 🙂

Have a great week and I’ll see you on Friday…until then…Happy Stamping!
