And if you just wandered in, well, welcome to the hop! Here's your chance to get some great inspiration, and maybe even to win some new scrappy goodies!
Now, what do I have in store for you today? This is a project I saw in the June issue of Scrapbooks, Etc., and knew immediately that I wanted to adapt it to our Spring into Summer theme. In my family, there are weddings, graduations, dance recitals, and all sorts of other fun things happening this time of year. It's always a good idea to have a few nifty gift card holders on hand for those times when such an invitation appears in the mail.
This gift card holder can actually be designed to hold up to six gift cards and/or tags, letters, messages, etc. I chose to make it with two pockets for two different gift cards. The first version is a wedding-themed one, and I think it turned out so delicate and pretty! It uses the Road Show line from Fancy Pants. So flirty, feminine, and fun!
Here's how it appears from the front:
Here's the back. There's room for a personal written message, a stamped sentiment, or even some photos:
The second is a graduation version of the same concept. It uses the Mama-razzi line from BoBunny.
Front. The quote on the front is actually a cut-out from the Mama-razzi goodies.
And back. The graduation cap is a Make the Cut file. Download the SVG here: Grad Hat. The quotes are just some I printed onto white cardstock, then inked with Distress Inks to give that aged feel.
So, the details:
First, cut your base cardstock into a 4" x 9" strip. Accordian fold at 3" and 6." Use patterned paper to create the pockets, cutting it to 2 1/2" x 3." Glue along three sides, leaving the top open for your gift card to slip into. Decorate with border punches, ribbon, or strips of coordinating patterned paper. Embellish and enjoy!
Now, if you've read this far, enter for your chance to win some Prima goodies! Leave a comment on this post before 5:00 PM on Sunday telling me your favorite thing about this time of year. I'll choose a winner randomly and you will receive a package of assorted Prima flowers. How cool is that!
