Hey guys! Spellbinders is having a promotion right now on some of the past club kits so I thought I would use some of them to make this really cute Christmas gift card holder.
The kits that I am using are the For You Gift Card Holder (from April 2019) and the Festive Wreaths Slider Card (from June 2019) Click here to check out the promotion! Be sure to log in if you are a club member to see even bigger discounts! (Promo ends 10/20/19)
I cut the front and back of the holder out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and folded along the score lines. I then added double sided tape to the flaps that the folding created and stuck the two halves together. I cut the handle out of a lighter weight white cardstock and glued it on with liquid adhesive. I used tweezers to hold it in place while the glue dried.
Next I die cut the insert for the holder out of red cardstock and fan folded some white wax tissue paper. There is a die in the kit to cut paper to look like tissue paper, but I thought it would be fun to use real tissue paper. The insert has a little slot that you put the wax paper through and a flap that folds down to secure it (see video). I then die cut the slots for holding the gift card into the insert.
There is a cute little tag in the gift holder kit and I cut that out of red cardstock and glued a snowflake on it. The snowflake comes from the Festive Wreaths kit. I then tied the tag to the handle on the holder with red and white twine.
The Festive Wreaths kit comes with three little snowflake dies and I cut a bunch of them out of white and glitter white cardstock. I drew a circle onto the holder using a die as a template. I then used that circle as a guide for gluing down all the snowflakes.
For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed it in white onto some slate cardstock, cut it down into a strip, and popped it up in the center of the wreath with foam tape. I glued a bunch of raindrop embellishments to the wreath to kind of look like ornaments. The last thing I did was go over the sentiment with my Wink of Stella glitter brush to get the project even more sparkle!
