Quickie Gift Cards
Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. Today I'm going to share the third project we did at my last workshop. This is a super easy, super fast, but cute little gift card holder. My friend Pinie shared this on her blog back in March. She received one in a Control Freak swap from Erin Blair. Thanks girls!
Okay, so I know it's not SUPER Christmas like, but I don't have any of the new Christmas paper yet. And, even though it's not "Christmas" paper, I'd totally send it as a gift for the holidays. Gift cards are THE BEST thing to give. Man, my kids love getting iTune cards. I love getting Starbucks or Human Bean Coffee cards, heck, doesn't everyone love gift cards?
You could totally dress this up if you wanted to make it really special. Add a main stamped image, run some ribbon under it that ties on the side. The possibilities are limitless. But, this one was super easy ... just think how many you could whip out and be done with your list of gifts to give? Oh yah baby.
Here's how easy they are:
Cut your cardstock 4 1/4 x 11
Score each end in 3 inches
Score in the center at 5.5
Make a W shape with the center (is that a mountain fold?)
Tape that inside portion on the sides only.
Fold the front and back flaps back and insert the center end into your Tabletop paper cutter. Slice off that center fold.
Take the Designer Label punch and insert half way to make a little slot to pull the card in and out.
Decorate.... you are done!
My front image was easy peasy. I took the stripped stamp from the Curly Label Bundle stamp set, stamped it with Riding Hood Red classic ink on Whisper White. Punched it out using the Curly Label punch. Then I grabbed the Merry Christmas stamp, stamped it with Basic Black, then used the Large Oval punch to punch out the center portion. Line them up and stick them together. Attach with brads. This time of the year, you have to appreciate easy. :)
Stamps: Curly Label Bundle, Snowflake Roller Wheel (the inside).
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Bella Rose Designer Paper, Whisper White, Textured Kiwi Kiss.
Ink: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red.
Other: Curly Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, Vintage Brads, Crafter's Tool Kit, Designer Label Punch, Scor-Pal.
Have a great week everyone.... can you believe it's OCTOBER? Can we slow down a bit please? Dang....
