Our current challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central is to create a Gift Card Holder. Hmm…….I’ve never created one of those before!! So, I did what any crafter in need would do! I went in search of some ideas via YouTube. I found THIS tutorial from ChickNScratch that was both easy and cute! Also, in my search, I found THIS tutorial that I just HAD to make to go with my gift card holder. Both extremely easy!! Here are some photos of the items I made:
Isn’t Sleeping Baby Tilda just to-die-for cute!!!
A photo of the front of the brag book and the opened gift card holder. The gift card slides into that middle section. It was soooo easy to make!!
Sorry for the dark photo! My camera didn’t want to flash on this one! ha!
This is the back of the gift card holder and brag book. I guess it really doesn’t matter which way you open the gift card holder. I made it so that whichever way you open it, the papers are the correct orientation and both outside sections have a piece of patterned paper pop-dotted onto it.
- Image – Sleeping Baby Tilda
- Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Seven
- Copics – E000, E0000, E21, Y11, Y00, Y000, C00
- Clear A2 Envelopes
Doesn’t that image just make you melt?? Babies are so cuddly and cute! *sigh*
I also cut my image out and layered her on the Labels Seven set to make it look like she’s sleeping on the book. After all, this is a nursery rhyme theme brag book. :o)
The patterned paper I used on the inside cover of the brag book and the embellishments and papers on the gift card holder are from the store “Hey Diddle, Diddle”. Cute, glittered and glazed cardstock!!
If you would like to see the tutorial on how to make the brag book, please visit my blog. I have written directions there.
I hope you’ll join us in our challenge to create a gift card holder! There is a prize involved for the winner!!!! ;o)
