Gina K gift card holders!

fun



Gina K at A day in the life of gina k showed off this cute pattern for these gift card holders the other day. I have made a few to show you here. The dimensions are 4 1/4 by 10 1/2 and are scored at 3, 4 1/4, 5 1/2, and 8 1/2. You put sticky strip to hold the little section that holds the card together and decorate as you want! (oh she used a nestie to cut out a little indentation to hold the card...the largest rectangle on the small rectangle classic set but you could use a punch too) I like these holders as the gift card stands up when the folder is opened. Now I now this Home Depot gift card "clashes" with my little snowmen...but it is the only one I had on hand on picture day...it will actually have a yummy Starbucks in it!

I used My Minds Eye DP and SU! Not Quite Navy and Riding Hood Red for the cardstock, Riveting retired SU! set for the sentiment and a Marvy snowflake punch as well as my SU! circle punches on this one.



On this one I used ribbon as the belly band, SU! Bella Rose DP, Old Olive and Riding Hood Red cardstock. Retired Riveting sentiment with misc SU! punches.


Riding Hood Red and Barely Banana cardstock(can you tell Riding Hood Red is my new fave color?), Cloud9Design DP and a sentiment from SU! from ( I think) One of a Kind.

This is what this pretty DP looks like inside...for my Dad.

A much belated gift card for my daughter Abby's sweetie, Rick. We are all big Oregon Duck fans (colors green and yellow of course)...where they graduated from college. Rick is a golfing fiend so I thought he would like this. The golf ball is just white cardstock put through a cuttlebug folder. This is actually the back of the cardstock...it looks like a golf ball I thought...I just cut out the golf tee free handed. Sentiment again is SU!

Pin It!
