Gift card holder

To be honest, sometimes a gift card is the best gift you can give.  Why not put your creative spin on it and make the gift card holder to house the gift card.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this project:

Cut a piece of cardstock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ (you can make three gift card holders from one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock).  Score cardstock on one end at 2″ and the other end at 2.5″.  Use corner rounder to round the corners on the 2″ end.  Cut three pieces of patterned paper at: 3.25″ x 1.75″, 3.25″ x 2.25″ and 3.25″ x 3.75″.  Use the corner rounder to round the corners of one end of the smallest piece of paper.  Run adhesive along the side edges of the 2.25″ end of the cardstock to make the pocket.  Adhere the patterned paper to the outside of the gift card holder.  Attach the Velcro dot to the flap for closure.  Punch out the decorative emblem and attach to the pocket.

I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest and made it my own.  Now, you have the option to present your gift card with flair.  Happy paper crafting!

Do I really need a scoring board ?

A: It is a really handy tool to have not only to get a good score line on card bases, but to also use for marking score lines in such projects as gift boxes and baskets. They are a great tool to create embossed lines in things like photo mats, too.

Is there another use for a scrapbook photo album since I don’t scrapbook?

A: They make great organizational items. For example, use a sheet of acetate to place your acrylic stamps on and then slide the sheets into the pages of the scrapbook album to store them all together. Use them to, also, store sheets of stickers or loose ones in. Keep the projects that you are working on in them, too. They are very handy to have even if you aren’t a scrapbooker.

I’ve seen cards with round corners. How are they made?

A:  There are many types of punches that CreateForLess carries that create rounded corners.  Some will punch a fancy corner while others are made just to leave a rounded edge.  They are a nice look for handmade cards.

What is a good way to store my markers?

  1. A: The most important thing is to keep them laying down so that the ink does not flow to either end. This will help keep them ready to use.  Pen trays are a great way to accomplish this.

Coredinations Cardstock

 

I have seen cardstock that is has been embossed and there’s another color showing through on the cardstock. How is that done?

A: A great way to achieve this look is by using a sandable cardstock such as Coredinations. It can be sanded before being embossed or the raised surface can be lightly sanded for a totally different look.
