Crafty Little Christmas Tutorial: Gift Card Holder

Here it is!  The first of this month's Crafty Little Christmas Tutorials!  Today's will be a little Gift Card Holder!  This beautiful little folded piece of cardstock perfectly tucks away a special little gift that any recipient will be joyful to open!  These were a huge hit and a best seller at my Holiday Craft Fairs this season!  Now, you, at home, can make your own for your gift card gifting!


Before we begin, I have to tell you that Stampin' Up!'s thick cardstock is truly the best foundation for these holders.  Because of the weight of our cardstock (80# weight) scoring and folding is crisp and clean and your gift card fits so snug inside; there's no worries that it may fall out or damaged before your receiver gets it.  And because of the beautiful coordination between all of Stampin' Up!'s colors, pairing Designer Series Paper and inked sentiments is super easy---there's hardly any thinking involved!  I was able to whip up these 10 featured above in about two hours.  And I didn't even have anything to copy! 

So here's how you make this little Gift Card Holder:

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Cardstock (6" x 3-3/4"; scored at 1" and 3-1/2")
  • Designer Series Paper (3-1/2" x 2-1/4")
Directions:
  • Once you've chosen which color Cardstock you're going to use for the holder, score it along the long edge (6" side) at 1" and 3-1/2".  Use a bit of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the outside edges of the 1" section (see diagram below).
  • Fold where scored and stick the bottom edge to the middle section to form a pocket.  The top flap will be loose.
  • Use the desired Designer Series Paper, Stamped Sentiments, and Embellishments to finish off your Gift Card Holder.  You can secure your top flap using a Mini Velcro Dot, or make a belly band (a band of cardstock that goes around the entire holder), if desired.
Take a peek at this diagram for clarity:

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Lent 2020: Day Two

Today's post is brought to you by...COFFEE.  I'm not going to lie, I really did consider giving up coffee for Lent, but when I mentioned it to one of my best friends, his response was "well, I'll see you in 40 days!"  I was kind of shocked at his lack of support, but then I read a post that was shared with me regarding Lent and some "food for thought" and one of the bullet points read "Don't give up coffee. Jesus will forgive you, but your family might not."  Well---I heard God loud and clear on that one.  Don't give up coffee.  And I'm so very glad I did not. See today, I had a TON of things to accomplish.  We're gearing up for a big weekend and I had quite the laundry list to do.  Not only was my laundry list (and my laundry basket) huge, but I didn't sleep well last night.  I had a very restless husband, so I put myself out on the couch.  Which wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly great, either.  So I already

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee
