Gift Card Holder Swap and Tutorial

Recently I took part in a gift card holder swap with my group of Stampin' Up ladies called The Little Debbies!!! Here is what I created! To open the card, the ribbon slides off.

This is a quick and easy way to jazz up a gift card for that someone special! To make this gift card you start with a 4 x 11 inch sheet of card stock. You then score the paper at 3, 5 1/2 and 8 inches. You then fold it into a "W" shape. You then punch out a slot in the folded middle section large enough for a gift card or cash with any punch you like. Then you glue or tape that middle section together. But make sure that the adhesive you use is right at the edge of the card stock. This is where the card goes and you want to make sure you have enough room for it. I found that sticky tape worked the best for me. The rest is up to you!

The stamp sets I used were Cute & Curly and Priceless. I used kraft, whisper white, pink pirouette, and baja breeze card stock. I used Versamark and baja breeze ink. I used the curly label punch for the main tag. Then I used the boho blossom punch and a silver brad for the flower in the tag. I attached it to the ribbon with sticky tape. I tied the Baja Breeze Striped grosgrain ribbon with linen thread. For the inside I used my word window punch and the 1 3/8 circle punch. I added whisper white card stock stamped in baja breeze.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
