This week on the Tombow blog we were giving the task of creating something with the theme of "Gifts that keep on Giving" It took me a bit to think about what I wanted to create, but then it hit me. I give gift cards to several people in my family and those are definitely gifts that keep on giving so I decided to create a little gift card holder with a vintage feel to it.
I used papers from the Melissa Frances Deck the Halls 6 x 6 paper pad and some ivory cardstock to create this quick and easy gift card holder. I started with a 4" x 6 1/2" piece of ivory cardstock. With the long side at the top score at 2 3/4" and 5" Fold on score lines. Add Tombow MonoAdhesive Dots to the left and right sides on the 1 1/2" flap and fold up to create the pocket for your gift card. I used more MonoAdhesive Dots to attach the print papers to the outside/inside flaps of the holder. I stamped the sentiment from Northwoods onto a small oval with Cranberry Adirondack ink and then punched out some branches from a MS punch and the leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage die set. I used a Tombow Foam Tab on the back of the oval to hold the branches in place and to create height for my sentiment.
This would be a quick and easy project that could be decorated for any holiday or celebration. The possibilities are endless!
