Here is the gift card holder tutorial that I promised. I will say that if you're going to make one, planning ahead and having everything ready will make any new project go so much smoother. Just like when you're about to make a new recipe with a lot of ingredients, it's good to be prepared by having everything measured out and things brought to room temperature if need be. Of course, I'll guide you hear and clue you in there so you know what to expect ahead of time.
Let me show you the finished product.
Okay, so let's get started.
Here are the things that I used for mine. Not shown is: my hot glue gun, my favorite liquid adhesive, long white pearl head pins, three brads, tweezers, a paperclip (one of those heavy duty squeezy ones) and chipboard/cardboard.
So far so good, and now it's time for the decorating. I used the Sizzix Bigz die by Tim Holtz called Tattered Florals. I cut out 48 of the medium sized flower (45 pink and 3 red), embossed them using the small dot embossing folder by Provo Craft, and then inked them up using my distress inks.
I hot glued the red rose and 4 leaves to one of those squeezy paperclips that hold a lot of papers. Sorry, I don't know the technical name for them or if there even is one. If you happen to know, please let me know in the comments section at the end of this post.
So there you have it. Isn't it pretty? Believe it or not, that gift card is hiding in there.
If you have ANY questions about how this was put together, products I used or where you can purchase them, ask away in the comments section and I'll answer as quickly as possible.
Thank you so much for visiting! Have a great day and an even better tomorrow!
