Christmas Giftcard Holder

December 22, 2009 at 10:00 am 3 comments

We exchanged gifts with my side of the family in Perth before we left for NZ, so I was busy making lots of cards and packages in the week before we left. I wanted a gift card holder to package a giftcard for my brother-in-law, and set about making up a little holder similar to this design I had seen on Claire Daly’s blog.

Here’s the front of the giftcard holder, all folded up. It has the snowflake from Season of Joy stamped in VersaMark in the background on an Old Olive base. I made a belly band that wraps around the holder using some I Wish DSP on some Real Red card and with the sentiment from Best Yet (are you sick of this one yet…?! I do have some other Christmas sentiments, but this just seemed to match perfectly with everything!!)

When you take the belly band off and open it up, it looks like this:

The bottom section is doubled over and holds the giftcard (you can see it poking out there!). I punched a 1″ Circle partway into the edge so you can pull out the giftcard easily. I also used some I Wish die cuts and DSP to decorate the middle and address it to my brother-in-law Matt.

It wasn’t until I finished making the project, looking at Claire’s design carefully online and measuring it up to fit my giftcard, that I realised that this was the giftcard holder featured in our Impressions newsletter this past month, and I had the template right there ready for me to use!! Oh well! If anyone wants me to email them the template, let me know!

Thanks for the inspiration, Claire!
