We have super-wonderful ideas for you this week at Create with Connie & Mary for our challenge. How about some Gift Card Holders! And just in time for Christmas!

I held a class using the Envelope Punch Board a few months ago, and I know my girls will love adding this to their list of projects (Hi Girls!):

It's a mini file-folder Gift Card Holder!

I added a little bit of shine with the Champagne Glimmer Paper stars cut with the Star Punch:

And a bunch of different sized trees using the Tree Punch. There's also a pocket on the inside to slide the gift card in and a separate white layer to add a little bit of hand-writing:

If you would like to create one of my gift card holders, here's how:
  • Melon Mambo Cardstock measuring 6" x 5". Score on the 6" side at 3".
  • Using your Envelope Punch Board, punch on the very edge of the 5" side of your cardstock by lining up with the edge of the hole where shown below:

  • Slide the cardstock to the 2" mark and punch again. Turn your cardstock clock-wise to the other 5" side and repeat.
  • Use your Paper Cutter to cut and remove the non-tabbed strip on each side where you punched.
  • Use the Corner Round portion of the Envelope Punch Board to round the corner on each tabbed end.
  • Trim The Tree Designer Paper measuring 2" x 4" for the front. Round the same top corner with the Corner Punch.
  • Trees cut with the Tree Punch, Whisper White & Melon Mambo Cardstocks. I embossed one with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.
  • Add a few Glimmer Paper stars.
  • Stamp your chosen sentiment and cut with the Modern Label Punch and glue with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The ribbon is glued to the back with Sticky Strip and you wrap it towards the front and tie into a bow.
  • For the inside, the pocket measures 4 3/4" x 1 1/2" using Melon Mambo Cardstock. Add Sticky Strip to the two short sides and the bottom, glue in place.
  • Add a designer paper layer to pocket measuring 4 1/2" x 1 1/4".
  • Add the signature layer using Whisper White Cardstock measuring 2 1/4" x 4 3/4". Glue one tree cut with Early Espresso Cardstock and the Tree Punch. Add one Glimmer Paper star.
  • Oh....and add one Gift Card!
I hope you enjoy my project. Visit Create with Connie & Mary to see what other type of gift holders my teammates created!
