If you have a lot of gift cards you're giving this Christmas and want to add a handmade touch, I have just the answer for you: Handmade Gift Card Holders! I found the tutorial on the Splitcoaststampers website, but I must admit that although the instructions and video were easy to follow, my finished product never turned out to be the right measurements. I wonder if it was because I didn't have the specific scoring tool she used in the video, or if because I'm just an idiot. :) I did manage to finally get the holder the right size by scoring and cutting it smaller.
For the outside of the card I stamped a Christmas sentiment then punched it out using a scalloped die. It was then adhered to a round green die cut (the circles were both cut with Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circle dies). The white sparkly circle was adhered to the holder first. Then I added the gold ribbon and popped the green circle and sentiment up on dimensionals just like she shows in the video on the Splitcoaststampers website.
Everything fit nice and neat inside. I love the way it turned out, even though I really struggled getting the sizing right. If you give this project a try, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I did leave a note on the Splitcoaststampers website explaining I had trouble with this project. I'll let you know if I hear anything back.
Have A Great Day! Amy
