Last Minute Gift Card Holder
Hi everyone. Welcome to Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin'. So last year I posted a last minute gift card holder so I thought it was only appropriate to post one again this year. Let's face it... we all have those last minute gifts that we forgot to get or wrap... or misplaced until the last minute. This one is a cute, simple way to give those gift cards.
I saw this design on Dawn Griffith's site and just had to make one (or 20 lol). I did change mine up a bit, which you will see and i will explain a little later on. I thought that since it wasn't Friday and I didn't really have time to do a video i would do a picture tutorial for you today. So, here we go...
First what you are going to need is a piece of card stock or DSP cut at 11" x 4".
You are then going to need 3 pieces of card stock. The largest cut at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" (Basic Black), the middle piece cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" (Old Olive), and then the smallest piece cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" (Lost Lagoon).
Now this is where i changed mine up a bit... i added 2 more pieces. I added a backing piece that my entire gift card holder is going to adhere to. This is cut at 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" (Basic Gray) and then i added an inside piece. This is cut at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" (White White).
To Begin making your gift card holder you are going to need to score your base piece (the 11" x 4" piece) at 4" and 8".
Next you are going to need to line up the top score mark to the bottom point on your farthest right flap... and then you are going to cut.
Now take your Red Sticky and place at the bottom of your triangle that you just made so that it makes the pouch to place your gift card. Make sure to only put it on the bottom though.
Then fold over and close.
Assemble your top layering pieces and place on the front of your gift card holder. Then place your entire holder on your backing piece. I suggest doing this if you are doing DSP as your base... it gives it a little bit more stability. Then place your extra Whisper White piece on the inside left panel of your holder.
Pretty simple huh? Here is a look at the finished product that i made while doing the picture tutorial:)
Well that is all for today my friends. Sure hope you enjoyed and if i don't see you again until after the holiday, I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!!!! Until next time...
