Wow - I can't believe it has been a week since I posted last! I had two projects to "Show-and-Tell" - I just haven't found the time to post them! Well today is the day! (I can't promise I'll post BOTH but I think I can manage one!) I have a sick little girl on my hands today. Rebecca has a cold - she feel "icky". I know THAT because she took a 2 hour nap today! She hasn't done that in years!! So she's coloring ... and I'm taking a break from coloring to post my Envelope Gift Card Holder. We made this project at my Technique Class last week. It is a FANTASTIC way to use up all those "used" envelopes you have lying around. You know the ones ... they are the ones that the children colored on, or relatives who opened the card at your house and you couldn't bring yourself to throw away a perfectly good (albeit written on!) envelope! Here is the solution - use them in a gift card holder. I cant' take credit for the project - I cased it from ... yep .. Tamye Dunbar (www.stampinfun.ca) - I just changed the stamp sets and colors but the design was from her.
First ... a picture of it closed:
You're going to want size and scoring dimensions, aren't you ... ok ... down to the craft room to get my project and ruler ... hang on - be right back ...
OK - the main piece is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" - scored at 2 1/2" and at 5 1/2" plus two ticks (technical, aren't I?)
When you fold the paper on the score lines one flap is smaller than the other - the smaller one is 2 1/2" - the larger one is 2 3/4". The larger one is the front of your holder. Yes, it makes a difference - you want the smaller one one the inside so the gift card fits nicely.
See in this picture ... you want room to tape down the envelope as well as the little cards for the gift card itself ..
Here are the little cards that go in the envelope pockets:
So there you have it. A fun little gift card holder.
Right - as I thought ... I'll have to post my other gift card holder another day ... the roast beef is ready to eat ... gotta go mash the potatoes and make the gravy. Mmmmm - I love pajama day Sunday!!
Have a fun week!
