Another Gift Card Holder and Tutorial

I'm back with another gift card holder and tutorial.  

I used to be a total clean freak.  My work space had to be perfectly clean, but as I got older I learned to deal with the messes. LOL!!!  Here's a picture of my messy work space!!  

For the front of the gift card holder, I used the A Muse Studio Cozy Back and Bottle Brush Forest stamp sets.


Starting out with Sugar Cardstock for the base of the card, I layered it with Sky Cardstock.

I hand-cut the snowy hill from a|s Sugar Cardstock.  I stamped a few of the trees from the Bottle Brush Forest stamp set using Sage Ink and cut them out.  The adorable snowman was colored using Copics.  He was then adhered with foam tape.  Finally, added some sequins as snowflakes.

The inside of the card was layered with patterned paper from the Christmas Sweater paper pack.  The sentiment from the Cozy Back set was stamped on Sky Cardstock cut using the Labels 8 Nestabilities.


Here's the tutorial on how to make the gift card holder.

Start out with a piece of 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Sugar Cardstock. Score at every 1 inch mark (the last piece will be 1/2" wide).  Because it's hard to see the score marks on white cardstock, I drew lines where the scores were made.

The places marked with an "x" are where you are going to put the double sided tape.

Next, add layers of the patterned paper to the panels as seen here:

Layer the inside of the card with the patterned paper.

Take the scored piece and adhere the 5th panel to the 4th panel:

Starting with the 1 inch end of the scored piece, adhere it to the bottom part of the top of the inside panel, like so:

Fold over the panels to make the first "box" of the holder.

Adhere the piece that will make the slot for the gift card holder.

Then, fold over the next "box" and adhere to the base of the card.

That's it....super easy, super cute!!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
