Stylish Gift-Giving

Posted on Dec 9, 2015 9:16:10 AM

Hello, it's Irit bringing you some stylish handmade gift card holders. They are made with paper and recycled chipboard. They are easy-to-make, fancy gift holders. I made a small tutorial to show you how you can make this project.

Dreams and Wishes Gift Card Holder


Product Used:

Patterned Paper: Paper House
Stickers: Paper House
Diecuts: Paper House
Chipboards: FabScraps
Stamps: Rubber Dance
Ink: Clearsnap, Tsukineko
Embossing powders: Wow! Embossing Powders
Other: chipboard, bead handle, photo corners

Step by Step Instructions: 

1. Fold the 15" x 8'' bare chipboard piece into a purse shape with folds at 3" and 12", so we have this 8" x 6'' finished shape with 3'' flap. Cover the entire piece with Paper House patterned paper inside and out (you'll need two 12" x 12'' pieces).

2. Ink the chipboard front with VersaMark and heat emboss with a mix of blue powders. Ink the entire piece's edges with one of these inks, too. Adhere the window shape on the front and add the title on top of it. Add two snowflake glitter Paper House stickers.

3. Add a gift card sized Paper House diecut inside the holder and add four white photo corners to insert the gift card later. Adhere a few more diecut shapes on the top half on the inside.

4. Stamp sentiments on the lower right corner of the lower page with VersaMark and the same light blue heat embossing. Add a couple of metal charms.

5. Add a string of plastic beads as your handle and adhere a round Velcro piece to make the closure.




Book-shaped Gift Card Holder


Product Used:

Stickers: Paper House
Resin cast: Environmental Technology Ink Easy Cast Resin
Molds: Plaid, Wow! Embossing Powders
Chipboard: FabScraps
Inks: Ranger
Glitter: Ranger
Bling: Paper Studio
Other: Book board

Step by Step Instructions:

1. Wrap two book board pieces with Paper House patterned paper and add the inside patterned paper to cover the bare boards.

2. Fold three sheets of plain paper accordion style and make the folded frame inside the book cover. Cover the paper with a frame made from the same patterned outside paper. Add four photo corners to keep the future gift card inside.

3. Embellish the inside cover with 3D stickers and make the 3D snowman by cutting the same paper twice and using 3D foam glue.

4. Heat emboss the title with silver and blue glitter powders and adhere it over the outside cover. Add a strip of rhinestones and some more random blue stones over the cover.

5. Cast three snowflakes and two circles with ETI Easy Cast Resin and some blue glitter in the mold, and after 24 hours, glue them over the cover as shown.
