In November our Demo Swap was to create Gift Card Holders. This must have been a bit intimidating because we did not have as high of participation from our group as usual. But it also may have had to do with the fact that many were busy with OnStage preparations, too! But, for the ones who did participate, the returns as you will see, were fabulous!
The Gift Card Holder pictured above was created by Kim Lundstrom who used the Bring on the Presents Bundle from our Holiday 2018 Catalog. The bow is truly stellar and it’s just fun to have this little card in your hands to open up.
This is the inside pic. The designer paper is our Festive Farmhouse. I like that the gift card placement is above the sentiment section. A fun and unexpected place to find it!
From the front, this deer gift card holder looks like it might be a gatefold card, but looks are deceiving! This card was created by Dawn Michels . . . who added a little twinkle of red to the deer cut out’s nose . . . Rudolph must be on break! lol! She used paper from Under the Mistletoe in our Annual Catalog.
The card, turns out, only opens to the left and the front panel is folded back into itself. A die cut provides a place for you to insert your gift card, which is just a very clever idea and I just love it!
Stacey Krats used the Diaper Fold on a 6×6 piece of paper from Under the Mistletoe and created a place not only for the gift card . . . but also for a little chocolate treat! That chocolate treat is finding it’s way right into my tummy now that I’ve taken the picture!! I believe she made 60 of these diaper folds to a local Assisted Living Facility.
Diana Wilson made a gift card holder and a sweet little envelope (created with our Envelope Punch Board) to put it in! Notice that there are two cut outs. To open this card holder, you need to put your thumbs in the notches and then pull equally apart and when you do . . .
THIS happens!! You’ve got Santa up there in the Northern Lights and there is a spot for a gift card on the right! So very cool!!
Cindy LeMire created this cutie! It’s a little square card and the top flap is held down by the ribbon. Slid the ribbon down to reveal . . .
your pop up gift card! I love the extra detail she put on the inside by using the Detailed Trio Punch. It’s too bad the Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Workshop paper retired early from the Holiday Catalog . . . but when you see how CUTE it is . . . it’s easy to see why they ran out!
And finally, here is my Gift Card Holder project. I did a video tutorial on it a while back but if you would like to check it out, just click on How to Make a Cute Gift Card Holder with Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper.
