Hello. I have to confess that I’ve been loving the unusually lovely weather we’ve had in Edinburgh & East Lothian in the last week. I had a lovely weekend with friends watching the Royal Wedding and with family just having fun together. As a result, I’ve not spent a huge amount of time in my craft room recently.
So, I’ll be sharing a few less projects this week – I hope you forgive me!
Today’s project is this bright and cheerful gift card holder…
I love the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper and will miss it once it retires on 31st May 2018. It’s been so much fun to use in all sorts of projects.
This is a departure from my usual gift card holders as I’ve not used my envelope punch board, but instead used my Simply Scored board.
My paper measured 5 and 3/4 inches by 5 inches.
On the long side I scored at
- 2 and 1/4 inches
- 2 and 3/8ths inches
- 4 and 5/8ths inches
- 4 and 3/4 inches
On the short side I scored at
- 58ths of an inch
- 3/4 of an inch
- 4 and 1/4 inches
- 4 and 3/8ths inches
This gives the holder a 1/8th of an inch side
I essentially cut away the top and bottom side panels, just leaving the middle one…
And I rounded all of the corners. The side and bottom flaps fold in to keep the gift card in place and the top flap covers them all. I then just used some of the lovely organza whisper white ribbon to keep it closed.
I think this is much more fun that the boring cards you normally get with gift cards.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project. Just let me know if you have any questions about it, or any of the products I’ve used. I’ve listed the products below and you can click on them to visit my online Stampin’ Up! store.
