New Catalog Sneak Peek Project #2…A Little Gift for You

Standard

Welcome to day two of New Catalog Sneak Peek projects. Today I have for you an easy gift card to make.

This is perhaps one of my favorite projects I have made thus far. I have never made a gift card holder quite like this before. I once used a template I didn’t end up liking, throwing away all the gift card holders I had made. This one, I love. It was easy to make and decorate. I used the Affectionately Yours DSP again, my favorite from the new collection of papers. The stamped saying is from the Love and Affection stamp set. I broke up the stamp, by just inking one word “sending” then inking “a smile your way”after I cleaned the stamp from the first use. It was really simple to do. If you are unsure of free handing the inking, you can cover the words you don’t want with a piece of paper; this allows you to stamp the word or words you want.

YOU CAN MAKE IT:

*Measure and cut

*Score both sides at 1/2 inches.

*Score the center fold.

*Glue the bottom fold sides, then fold at the halfway point, meeting up top.

*Punch in the center, using a 1 inch circle punch, about 1/4 to half way in.

*Ta da! You have a fancy new gift card holder. Don’t forget to decorate the front.

Stay crafty!
