Jolly Holiday Gift Card Holder
December 13, 2010
It is amazing what you can achieve when the man of the house is away and the most serious cooking you have to do is to put something between 2 slices of bread .
I wanted to make a couple of gift card holders and was inspired by this one from Sue Bayliss that looks like a gift box and the faux bow is cute. I have kept the same gift box look, but I have constructed the inside differently as I wanted to have somewhere to write as well. The Jolly Holiday DSP and matching Cherry Cobbler cardstock give a really bold look, so I kept the decoration simple. Here is the closed up view - the finished dimensions (excluding the faux bow) are 5" x 4 1/2".
This is the magnetic closing - they are really thin - not more than the thickness of a dimensional when closed and they open really easily, so there is no pressure on the cardstock.
Here is the gift card holder when it is open. There is a plenty of room to decorate and write your greeting and the gift card pops out when you open it up.
|Card stock & Papers||Cherry Cobbler Textured, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Jolly Holiday DSP|
|Accessories||Old Olive Satin ribbon, Filagree Brad, Green Rhinestone brad, Fine Galaxy Glitter (on tree), Magnetic catch (not SU)|
|Tools||Scallop Trim Corner punch, Large Oval and Oval punches, Wide Oval punch, Word Window punch, Tree Tops Combo Die (not SU), Lots of Tags die, Big Shot, Dimensionals, sponge daubers, Sticky strip, Anywhere glue stick|
Enjoy your week.
Wow that's so cool - love the little magnet closure too - fantastic

This is so clever, and rather ornate, in true Judy style! I love how the filigree brad looks on the Old Olive strip. Beautiful project, Judy.
