Gift Card Holder

Fun Fold - Gift Card Holder

I used the super cute, Smitten Mitten set to make this awesome gift card holder for Christmas.

The small mittens hold the flap closed and when opened, it exposes the little pocket inside to hold a special gift card.

I used the Christmas Quilt designer paper from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog as well as a touch of red glimmer paper to make the gift card holder sparkle.

The card is 4 1/4" x 11. I scored the card at 4 1/4" then 9 3/4". The bottom flap folds up and I attached the two die cut mittens with mini dimensionals. The top flap tucks in under the mittens to hold the card closed.

Here's the inside. I used tear tape on the far edges of the bottom flap, so that a gift card can be easily tucked inside.

Did you notice the red rhinestone gems? I colored our basic rhinestone with the Stampin' Blends cherry cobbler marker. These markers are permanent and can be used on non porous surfaces. SO cool!

We made this card at this months Card Class and the ladies loved it!

You should give it a try!

Until the next time...

My Talented Team and their Fabulous Swaps and 3-D Creations

I want to share my teams swaps from our Christmas Party with you. The theme was gift packaging. Some of the girls made boxes and others did gift card holders. They were all very cute!

This adorable little gift box was made by Sue Brennan. She used the "Bella and Friends" stamp set to decorate the front of the box.

This is the coolest gift card holder... Its a "zipper card" made by Lori Wiest. Pull the tab and it unzips the card to reveal a gift card inside. I don't have instructions, but I'm sure it can be "googled."

Christmas Party Favors and Gifts

I had our annual Christmas Party for my #1 Stampers team last night. I'll share lots of photos of the party later this week, but I wanted to share the favors and gifts that each attendee received.

I used the Stampin Up Pizza Boxes to package the party favors and gifts for each team member.

These boxes are small white pizza shaped boxes in the Holiday Catalog. However, I "painted" the boxes red to fit the Christmas theme. I got this idea from a gift I received at the Stampin' Up Convention, from my friend Lynsay Mahon. See Lynsays blog here.

This is the box that Lynsay gave me:

I loved Lynsay's design and especially the fact that she colored the pizza box. Lynsay explained that she filled a Stampin' Up Spritzer with water and added 10-15 drops of re-inker. Then lightly sprayed the boxed before she assembled it, and rubbed in the color with a paper towel. So, I tried it and my boxes came out perfectly! Thanks Lynsay!

IMG_1956

I used a Stampin Blends marker in old olive to color the pearl. Did you know that our Stampin' Blends could color non- porous surfaces?

IMG_1955

I used the Christmas Around the World designer paper to decorate the boxes, as well as the mini tinsel trim in silver. A 2 1/4" circle punch was used to punch the sparkly red glimmer paper on the front of the box.

IMG_1958

Inside, I covered Ghirardelli Chocolates with 3" x 1 1/2" Christmas Around the World designer paper strips.

IMG_1954

But, that's not all- I also created a Christmas shaker magnet for each of the girls as well.

IMG_1953

Keeping with the red and green color scheme, I used the holly and berries from the Tags and Trimmings stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. I added some sparkle with red glimmer paper as well as the Stampin Up Metallic Sequins.

IMG_1951

I used Foam Strips and Acetate Window sheets to create the shaker. I also used the 2 1/4", 1 3/4" and 3/4" punches for all the circles. Then I simply glued a small circular magnet on the back with Multi purpose glue. Its difficult to see, but I also glued a piece of the real red tinsel trim around the circle to cover the foam strip around the outside of the circle.

IMG_1952

I loved making these Christmas magnets for my girls. I hope they loved them too!

Here's a peek inside the box: The ink spots are a new item in the soon to be released Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog!

Gift Card Holder using Merry Little Labels

Last week at my Card Class, we made this unique and fun Christmas gift card holder. The ladies, were loving it!

I also used the darling, Be Merry designer series paper to decorate this cool gift card holder.

This is the card completely closed. I layered the Stitched Shapes Framelit ovals in whisper white and cherry cobbler cardstocks.

IMG_0581

Here's the inside:

IMG_0583

The whisper white cardstock is cut at 4 1/4" x 11". Its folded in half and then scored at 2 1/4" to form the pocket for the gift card.

I used tear tape to adhere the ends of the pocket and a 1" circle punch half way down on the circle, to from the thumb scoop.

I adhered the oval with 2 dimensionals, on the right side so that the left flap could slip underneath.

IMG_0584

The Be Merry designer paper is cut at 3x4, 2x4 and 1x4 inches. The largest piece is adhered to the outside left and the smallest is adhered to the inside pocket of the card.

IMG_0582

Isn't it cool? I can't wait to give a few of these out this Christmas!

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until the next time...
