Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blop Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.
Today I am also combining my Crazy 4 Challenges post. This week's Challenge is to create a GIFT CARD HOLDER. I went through a few fancy templates, but decided that with the holidays fast approaching, I'd provide a mini-tutorial for a SUPER FAST and EASY GC Holder-seriously this couldn't be quicker!
I stamped the UBER Cute Solly-Tude stamp by Stamping Bella on neenah White CS and colored her in with my Copics. The DP on the front here is Basic Grey Nook and Pantry-some of the YUMMIEST DP out there right now!
For my gift card holder, I took a 5 1/2 x 8" piece of Brown PTI Cardstock and scored it the long way at 1 1/2 inches, and then scored it in the middle lengthwise at 4".
I then cut 2 pieces of this ADORABLE Basic Grey Nook and Pantry DP and cut it 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 on the left side (the side you can write your greeting in) and then 3 1/2 by 3 on the right side. I printed out a simple "To and From" on white paper to adhere to the flap of the gift card holder on the right side, where the card goes.
All you need to do to tape down the folder side is some strong adhesive and make two strips, one on each side of the flap.
Last but not least, I glued down some Berry Sorbet ribbon on the backside and fed it underneath the main image on the front to tie it all together, literally. Seriously, the whole thing took me MAYBE 15 minutes.
