I'm on a roll with the posts! Today I have a cute (I think) little gift card folder, which I demonstrated at Kim's Christmas themed workshop in September.
Kim had heard lots about the Big Shot & wanted to see it in action, so I decided to use my new Petite Pocket die to make a patterned paper gift card folder. It's so easy to make a basic pocket - just run the die through the Big Shot, punch a couple of holes for the reinforcement rings, attach two strips of tape, adhere & you're done.
As you can see, I decorated the pocket with lots of punches, as thankfully, Kim is a fellow punch fan. You could of course use what you have!
You can hopefully see more detail in this close up of Rudolph (from the Jolly Bingo Bits) set. I stamped him in soft suede, then coloured his nose, eyes & antlers with markers. I punched him out with the 1 inch circle punch, then mounted him on a 1 1/4 inch & 1 3/8 inch circle punches & scallop circle. The sentiment is punched with the modern label punch.
Here's the back of the folder - opened & closed. The little reinforcing rings (in olive) come with the die. To make it easier to get the gift card out, I attached it to a strip of olive card, with a rounded end.
I think these would look really cute attached to your Christmas tree to wait for Christmas (assuming you're much more organised than me!).
At the workshop, I showed the gift card inside the folder, then added a Freddo Frog instead, to show they would be a great kids class gift too, as well as a treat for Kim's cute little boys....& lets face it, you can't beat chocolate!
If you have any questions about anything, or would like to just say hi, just leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. Until next time,
Inky wishes, Di
