NEW VIDEO: Easy Holiday Gift Card Holder!

Stampin' Up! Holiday Gift Card Holder created by Peggy Noe
At this time of year we always need cute gift card holders. Today’s project is an easy gift card holder and the measurements and a video tutorial are included 🙂

The main elements for this project are card stock and designer series paper. I’ve used Very Vanilla card stock and the pretty Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. 

You will need two pieces of Very Vanilla card stock: one 8-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ scored at 2″ and 6″; and the other, a scrap piece measuring approximately 4″ x 2.” You’ll need three pieces of designer series paper: (1) 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″; (2) 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″; and (3) 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4.” Round the top two corners of the 2″ top flap of card stock using the Detailed Trio Punch. Also round two corners of one side of the smallest piece of dsp Adhere the pieces of designer series paper to the back side of the Very Vanilla card stock using Multipurpose Glue.

Holding the card stock with the dsp to the back and the small 2″ flap at the top, fold up the lower section to create the pocket for the gift card. Apply Tear & Tape to the inside left and right sides of the lower section to adhere it in place (see video).

The hole for the ribbon was punched with the Detailed Trio Punch, and the 1/8″ Lovely Lipstick ribbon was run through the hole and around the gift card holder to be tied in a little bow.

The Merry Christmas sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set was stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock using Lovely Lipstick ink. (NOTE: the Perfectly Plaid stamp set is carrying over into the spring! It’s such a great set.) It was then punched out with the Everyday Label Punch and attached to the front flap on each edge with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ribbon was threaded under the label and tied in bow as shown above. A Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dot was added to the label for a bit of bling!!

Holiday Pillowbox!!

Stampin' Up! Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies pillowbox - Peggy Noe - stampinup

When I saw this adorable pillowbox in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog I just knew I had to make it! It’s on page 23 if you want to look 🙂 So, of course I had to order the Wishes All Aglow stamp set for the cute ho-ho-ho lights, and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies that make the pillowbox.Stampin' Up! Pillowbox Trim Your Stocking - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The pretty olive and black paper is the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Love Love Love!! The lights are so darling, they just make me smile! I stamped them in Versamark ink and then embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder. Behind the lights are Vellum snowflakes cut out using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies.

The pillowbox is surprisingly made using these multipurpose thinlits dies. They create a cute stocking that has a pillowbox backing so you can tuck a gift card right in the stocking! Or, you can just make the pillowbox by itself, as I’ve done today.

Here’s a picture from page 15 of the Holiday Catalog, showing what the stocking looks like next to the pillowbox. And there are so many other cute dies in the set!

Come back tomorrow because I’m going to show you some non-holiday pillowboxes to show you the versatility of these dies!

What do think of these cute pillowboxes? I love your comments! Leave me a comment HERE!

Sparkle for the Remarkable Inkbig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for July 2017. This month our theme is “SPARKLE”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Peggy Noe, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe.

Sparkle! Who doesn’t love sparkle? What a fabulous theme for our blog hop! A Gold Striped Treat Bag is the beginning of my “sparkle” project today. These bags are so much fun to embellish!

I used the pretty Berry Burst as an accent color and made a tag of Berry Burst card stock. The tag is adorned with a “lovely” heart cut from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Lovely Words thinlits dies. The gold really sparkles against the berry!

A strip of 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst runs along the lower white stripe. Sparkly rhinestones line the ribbon strip.

Pretty Pointer: Do something different with your supplies. Use an item in an unusual way, the way the ribbon above is used in a way you wouldn’t expect. It gives an element of surprise to your project!

These bags are so nice for treats and little gifts. You can put almost anything in them. What’s your suggestion? Obviously, a cookie, a few candies, a nice bar of soap, some tea bags… I’d love to hear more! Leave me a comment and tell me what you would use this bag for 🙂

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog – Peggy Noe, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
