“…And merry when the great winds sing, through autumn’s woodlands brown…
At our monthly STAMPINGPEACE stamp class, one of our projects this week was this gift card holder. When you open the small gold plaid flap on the top…. (drum roll please…) : )
Ta Da!!! The interior has two pockets, one for a gift card, the other for a personalized note. It is made with an envelope that is cut in two. Whoever designed this was pretty clever!
Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Curly Cute
Papers: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla and Sweather Weather Designer Paper (plaid).
Inks: Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry.
Measurements: Base ~ 7 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ scored at 1 1/4″ and 4 1/2″. Stamped on the second section only, but the third section could be stamped as well (the back).
Cut a Stampin’ Up! envelope in half (the “taco” way, not the “hot dog” way), after you have licked it shut. With the open flaps facing up, place a line of glue down the middle of one half and glue both halves together. Glue to the inside of the base piece.
Plaid Flap Piece: 4 1/2″ x 1 1/8″
Acorn Base Piece: 3 1/2″ x 2″ Middle Piece: 3 1/8″ x 1 3/4″
Acorn Piece: 1 1/2″ x 2 7/8″ Glue together the three “acorn” pieces and place dimensions on the bottom back half only. (Leave the top free for the flap to slide into). Happy Gifting!
