Never Judge A Book By It’s Cover

Today is one of my youngest daughter’s best friend’s 14th birthday.  After asking her Mom what she’d like for her birthday I was told she liked books.  So, I got her this $20 Hastings Gift Card.  Hastings doesn’t have complimentary gift card holders, instead they charge for their’s.  I decided I could easily make my own.

I used some double sided cardstock I cut at 6 1/2 x 4 inches.  I scored this at 3/4 and at 3 3/4 and rounded the four corners.  I then cut some dark pink and DP to layer on the inside after using my special Stampin Up half circle punch.  I attached the gift card to that.  I then made the wrap by simply cutting a 1 x 8 inch strip and simply folded it over the sides rather than scoring it.  I then added a sentiment from Create With TLC and cut it out with a round die and added another scalloped die under it.

Fun huh?

  3. Fabulous gift card holder, far better than anything you normally get with one, and certainly better than having to pay for one… outrageous. Thank you for sharing it with us at Bearly Mine Challenges.
