Gift Card Holder Tutorial


Good Friends stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog (email me for your copy.)

card stocks: Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White

classic ink colors: Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, and Chocolate Chip.

1.3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Bone Folder or Score Blade

Begin with a piece of card stock measuring 2.3/4 x 8.1/2". (You can get four of these cards from one sheet of 8.1/2 x 11" card stock.) Stamp entire sheet on one side with leaf image.

Score at 3.3/4 and 7.3/4". (inside image shown here)

Trim a strip of card stock to 1 x 9" for the belly band. Score at 2 and 6.1/8".

Using Sticky Strip (this is a MUST,) adhere belly band together.

Using a stip of card stock measuring 1.1/2 x 4", punch with the scallop edge punch.

Apply Sticky Strip to the BOTTOM of the scallop punched card stock.

Place the scallop punched piece onto the inside portion of the prestamped larger piece of card stock.

Adhere a piece of Whisper White, measuring 1.1/4 x 3.1/4", BEHIND the scalloped piece to the inside of the card. (This step can be done before applying the scallop piece. I do it after just to be sure my scallop piece is going to cover my neutral piece.)

Stamp butterfly image from "Great Friend" and cut out. Adhere it with a Pop-Up Glue Dot to the circle punched piece of So Saffron. Decorate band and slip it around card holder.

Here is a sample I received from a
secret sister of mine.
Thanks Shellie!
