Little Reminders Gift Card
It's just the season for gift cards... well, it's always a good time for gift cards right? This very cool fold was shown at a regional by Linda Hamilton and shared with me by my dear friend Kendra last December. Kendra is an AWESBOMB stamper.. click on her name to check out her blog. I totally forgot about saving her instructions, but I'm SO happy I ran across her samples. These are PERFECT with the new Petals and Paisleys double sided designer papers from the Spring Mini. And, it just so happens that they also coordinate with the Little Reminder Tin. If you need a quick but nice little gift card holder, this is the ticket baby! The only stamp sets I used were Small Sayings and the All in a Row stamp sets from Stampin'Up! Beate is the genius who came up with using that criss cross stamp as faux stitching from the All in a Row set. She is so brilliant! BRILLIANT! Thanks for sharing with us girlfriend. :)
I used the Round Tab Punch, made a little tab and then added one of the die cuts from the Little Reminder Tin over the top, stamped thanks and added a flower too. That is my little "card" part, where I will write a note. It also pulls out.
These are SO easy and totally folded from one piece of 8 x 8 designer paper. I'm working on a tutorial and will post it tonight.
This is a view of the back. I used the slot punch to make a little slot for the ribbon. Because it is just folded, you can tweak it many different ways.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Small Sayings, All in a Row
Paper: Petals and Paisley DS paper, Shimmery White, Old Olive
Other: Grosgrain Ribbon (Apricot), Crafter's Tool Kit, Accents & Elements Little Reminder Tin, Slot Punch, Round Tab Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig.
Be right back after dinner with the tutorial. Thanks for visiting!
