I'd like to say given it's now December that I'm all set with holiday cards and gift card holders! But no... :)
All week I have a series of videos for you on creating quick and easy, but very fun, gift card holders. You'll find the videos live on Facebook.com/SipCraftCare and I'll put links here on my blog.
This one uses Memories and More cards (pre-printed cards that are 3 x 4 OR 6 x 4) and the package includes stickers for embellishment. For $10 you can get a lot of cards, gift cards, stocking stuffers and more!
This is how it looks closed.
This gift card holder uses a panel 4 1/4 x 9 3/4 (zee fold) scored at 3 1/4 and 6 1/2. Select 5 cards and places these on the zee fold (the back panel that is glue to the card panel doesn't need a card).
Now take this decorated zee fold and attach it to a Memory and More card cut to 5 1/4 x 4, onto the back panel cut 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
Can you see the zee fold above? The front and the back of the zee panel is decorated with 5 cards.
You can add a small 1 x 3 band as I did for a gift card - or just use it as a card.
And these cards make great quick and simple holiday cards - these 2 use the larger 4 x 6 cards but you can easily put a smaller 3 x 4 card on the front. You can easily jazz these up with some coloring tools such as a brayer or a spritzer, or add ribbon or gold cord, or even a few rhinestones.
I love the matching cards and envelopes and they are 20 cards with envelopes for $10! You can see they work perfectly with the smaller 3 x 4 cards (and the border shows) or the larger 6 x 4 cards.
You can see the details in my online store, here click here to see these Memory and More cards
Drop by this week, I'll have lots of fun gift card holders for you here on this blog!
Happy crafting, MaryKate
