Ornament Gift Card Holder from Stampin Academy



Angie Kennedy Juda from Stampin Academy made this cute gift card holder. It looked like so much fun to make that I had to give it a try! I used all the same cardstock as she did, so mine should look just like hers LOL.(A TOTAL CASE!) If you have never visited Angie's blog...you are really missing out!

I have all different versions of this holder going through my head...I think a little pompom nose on the reindeer would be cute, but didn't have any on hand when I made this.

I made this for the Stampin Up 10 monthly group I belong to. My first grade friend/Stampin Up Demo is slacking on the beaches of Mexico, so I told her I would whip this up for our meeting on Monday night. I got to play with her new Sizzix scallop die...whoa it is quite a bit larger than my scalloped nestie. (4 1/2 inches wide)

The plain circle DP and chipboard are cut with my largest classic nestie. (tip: use lightweight chipboard or you could probably even leave the chipboard out if you were making these more as a disposable thing instead of an ornament on your tree--cereal box weight chip board is just about right) Angie did mention in her video that lining up the scallops was a little bit of a trick, and yes it was! I finally decided instead of marking them like she did in her video tutorial, I would stick one side of the red back piece on and then line up the other side so that no red showed from the front side. Also, I only used glue dots on every other scallop...I think one glue dot on each scallop might be a bit of over kill LOL...

Add a gift card and viola...this was very easy to make...but I am sure it was because of Angie's great video...I am a real visual learner!
