FRIDAY AT LAST

My computer is driving me nuts!  It takes me forever to load a picture and get it into a folder.  Something has changed.  Don't know if I did it or the computer. Arggg!

But here I am finally.  Today's post is a picture of some gift card holders I have been working on for the Festival on Saturday and a craft show in Nov.  I have many different patterns for gift card holders, but saw this one on Pinterest and thought I would try it.  It was done by Becky Roberts and she has a video.

You start by cutting a piece of card stock at 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 and a 1 x 9 strip for the belly band.
  • Lay the long edge at the top of your Simply Scored and score at 2 and 6.
Fold up the larger section and adhere with Fast Fuse on each side.  This will be forming the pocket to hold your gift card.

Round the corners of the smaller section.  I also stamped a message from a retired set to the inside of this section.

Cut two pieces of DSP - one at 3 1/4 x 1 7/8 and one at 3 1/2 x 2 1/4.  Round the corners of the smaller piece on one long side. Then attach both pieces to the front sections of the holder.

I wrapped the belly band around the holder and creased it to fit securely.  Attach the band to itself with Fast Fuse.  I actually kept this attached part on the front of the holder because it is going to be covered up with the circles so you won't see where it is attached.  That will also make the back of your holder look more finished.

Punch out a 2" circle and a 1 3/4" circle from whatever color cardstock you choose and attach them to the belly band.

Stamp your teddy bear and punch it out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Stamp and punch or just punch out a bow from the same punch. Attach both to the circles with Dimensionals.

Tie some twine or cotton thread around the band for decoration.  I also stamped "hello baby" from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I attached it to the belly band with a Dimensional.

Many of the things I used are retired items.  I was trying to use up some old things.  The Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch are definitely new and they are awesome!  So many things you can do with them.

I hope you all have a great weekend.  Our wonderful, unexpected warm temps are going to be leaving and we will be getting cool air, wind and rain.  Well, it IS fall after all. 

Thanks for visiting.
