Congratulations, Grad!

With graduations upon us now, I wanted to share with you a super easy gift card holder that I made for my nephew Jake!  I also made one last year for my daughter’s BFF’s sister, click here.

Here are the measurements and a quick instruction:

  • cardstock (base): 7- 3/4″ x 5″ and score at 2-1/2″ and 6″
  • cardstock (inside stamped piece): 2-1/4″ x 4-3/4″
  • cardstock (belly band): 1″ x 7-3/4″
  • DSP (top): 2- 1/4″ x 4-3/4″
  • DSP (bottom): 1-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

Just adhere the sides of the small flap with Tear & Tape (placed on the very edge) so it will hold money or a gift card.  Wrap the belly band around the holder and adhere closed with a piece (or two) of Tear & Tape.  I used various sizes of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies to hide the end pieces.  It comes together in a matter of minutes.  Enjoy!

In case you are wondering where the graduation hat came from, I used the March 2016 Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love receiving the kits monthly and continue to use the stamps in other projects that arrive.  It is like a gift that keeps on giving!  Why not sign up for your own monthly subscription?  Click here to find out more or to sign up.

Gift Card Holder

Since graduations are upon us, they are the go-to gift for the recent grad, right?  Here I created a fun gift card holder using the Merry Moments DSP.  This DSP can be used for anything, not just Christmas!  With the flat end of the bag, insert it into your Stampin’ Trimmer and score at 3″.  Then cut a piece of DSP to measure 10-1/2″ x 2″.  Place Fast Fuse Adhesive to the front left of the Kraft Bag and wrap the DSP around.  The seam will be hidden by the scallop circle and you will not have a seam on the backside.  Nice, huh?

Here is a look at the cards that are pulled out just a bit in their pockets.

Gift Card Holder

Do you give gift cards at the holidays (even birthdays)?  How about a fun little packaging for them instead of just placing it inside of a boring card!  This is an old but tried and true technique using a medium envelope to create this fun gift card holder! Check this out!

Bomb’s Away Gift Card

I forgot to share this fun gift card holder that I made.  My daughter’s friend had a birthday party (a boy) and I needed to make him a gift card holder that would be appropriate for a 13 year old.  I think this is perfect, don’t you think?

Lauren asked me to add another panel to the inside so that she could write him a birthday greeting.
