Giftcard holder projects

What a fun time we had in my two classes to create a bunch of gift card holders and treat boxes! Each year, it gets challenging for me to hunt down cool ideas for gift card holders and treat boxes. I've taken ideas and put a twist of my own on these projects. I will link you up to where I got the original ideas from. Thank you to all of the talented ladies who inspire me.

This idea came from Splitcoast Stampers by poster jules7194. Here's the link to the instructions - GC HOLDER

Here's the inside:

I tried to close it with a ribbon, but it didn't look right to me, so I decided to use this clip since office supplies are pretty big in the crafting world right now. Got these clips from Fisher for only 28 cents each! The assortment of clips offered by SU will work great too!

supplies i used:
cardstock - kiwi kiss riding hood red
dsp - kiwi kiss patterns designer series
stamps - 2 cool dudes, best yet (level 2 hostess)
ink - kiwi kiss, very vanilla craft
accessories: mega scallop circle, super jumbo circle, pumpkin pie stampin' write marker, clip, 1 1/4" circle punch
This next project is one that I adopted the idea from Angie Juda of Chic 'n Scratch...love the videos and awesome projects! You can check out her fabulous blog right HERE! This kit kat tutorial inspired me after I watched Angie's video. I thought it would make a great gift card holder. Now after the class, I heard people say that it could also be made flat (the holder) because the one we made has a gusset. It is not made to stand up on it's own (I don't think it could anyway). But the idea was cute. So now, we have two versions as to make this cute holder. Watch the video tutorial here by Angie.

Here's the GC holder open...

supplies i used:
cardstock - chocolate chip
dsp - riding hood red patterns designer series
stamps - deer friends (level 2 hostess)
ink - riding hood red
accessories - scallop circle punch (SU), 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, word window punch, ribbon (non-SU ribbon I bought at Craft Supply of Honolulu), velcro circles (i bought them at Fisher)

Here's a look at more samples. I used the new dsp that is offered in the Holiday Mini Catalog - Ski Slope and Frosty Day. I wanted the girls to see what they looked like as each kit had different dsp inside.

Thanks for dropping in today. I will be posting more projects from the class tomorrow!
