DAISY LANE GIFT CARD HOLDER!

I can now share this project with you as I know it has been delivered.  I recently had a request for a Gift Card for one of my customers.  It was ordered by her Sister In Law who contacted me.  Of course one doesn’t provide just a Gift Card.  It must be dressed up.  So here is the Gift Card packaging.

It’s just a simple style.  I will share more about that further below.  The front is decorated with daisies.  2 large Daisies were stamped and punched with the Daisy Punch.  2 smaller Daisies were stamped and punched with the Medium Daisy Punch.  They were all layered together and curled up a little.  A Clear Gem was added in the centre.

The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  See the leaf?  I ran a score line down the centre of the leaf and folded it slightly.  This adds a little dimension to your leaf.

The Sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings.  I stamped it on a little strip of white card and sponged the edges with the Petal Pink ink.

The paper is from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.

This is the inside of the holder.  I stamped some of the fern leaves inside.

The colours look very different in the photos to each other. I can say they are both the same one but the lighting changed effecting the colour of the holder.

To make your own:

Cut your card to 10.5cm x 15.5cm.  Score at 6cm and 13cm.

4 1/8″ x 6 1/8″.  Score at 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″

I stapled the small flap down but you could adhere it with strong tape.  Be sure the tape is not too wide so you have enough room for the card to fit. Decorate it as you like.  Card mat for the front  and paper piece is slightly smaller on each layer (4mm or 1/8″).

Hope that helps.

Are you in need of a Gift Card?  Maybe for yourself (because it is the perfect gift for you) or it is for a friend or family.  You can order it to any value.  I have Christmas Gift Cards too so keep that in mind as Christmas approaches.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

MORE CRAFT FAIR PROJECTS!

I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂  The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these.  Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those).  I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.

Here are some of the projects I have recently made.

Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders.  These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts.  I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements.  These were decorated with all kinds of stars.  Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.

Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope.  I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though.  I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below.  Just check your own currency note size to fit.

P1140677

MONEY HOLDER  (in metric).

Cut card to 18cmx18cm.  Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.

Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch.  Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.

Insert

Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half.  Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end.  Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency.  You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.

Now how can you forget your furry friend.  These were very popular at my fairs.  I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half.  The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.

Stop by again in the next few days I have some more projects to share with you.

IT’S A WRAP WITH THE SCALLOP TAG TOPPER PUNCH!

I have had this idea in my head for a little while and I thought I would have a go at it.  I love the versatility of the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and thought it would be great to make a wrap for a card or similar.  For this project I made a Gift Card Holder and I am going to show you how to make your own.

I guess I better show you the Gift Card Holder first.

P1110955

This is a very simple project but it can really dress up your Gift Card Holders.  Here is how you can make one. (Metric and Imperial measurements are shown).

METRIC:

Cut your card 16cm x 14.8cm (It is this measurement so you can get 2 per sheet of A4 card if you like).  Score along the 16cm side at 8cm.  Score along the other edge at 12cm.

For the card front: card piece measures 7.6cm x 11.6cm and DSP measures 7.2cm x 11.2cm.  (I used the Fresh Prints Stack for these Gift Card Holders).

Strip for the Wrap: 19cm x 5cm.  Score this at 7.3cm and 15.5cm.

Ribbon: 40cm length of ribbon.

IMPERIAL:

Cut your card 6 1/2″ x 6″. Score on the 6 1/2″ side at 3 1/4″.  On the other side, score at 4 3/4″.

For the card front: Card piece measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/8″ and DSP measures 4 1/4″ x 3″. (Just check these measurements for your own preference).

For the Wrap: 7 1/2″ x 2″.  Score at 2 3/4″ and 6 1/8″.

Ribbon: 15″ length of ribbon.

1. Cut off the right hand lower tab off as shown in the photo.

P1110950

2. Use the Corner Rounder Punch to punch the bottom right corner of the left tab.  You can trim off a little snip on the left hand edge of the bottom tab too if you like if you find it shows a little when it is folded up.  Add Sticky Strip to the left and right hand edge of this lower tab.  Take off the backing and fold up to adhere together.

3. Adhere the card piece and DSP to the front of the Gift Card Holder.

4. Punch the end of the strip for your Wrap on the shortest end of the piece using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  Wrap this around your Gift Card Holder and thread through the ribbon and tie off.

5. Before tying the Gift Card Holder up with ribbon you can adhere a piece of Whisper White card inside the Gift Card Holder to write on if you like.  This is what I have done here.

P1110951

You can make a number of these up in no time.

Hope these instructions make sense.  Have fun creating them!

IT’S A CRACKER!!

I have been wanting to share this with you for a while. Finally I can! Giving Gift cards are popular at Christmas so why not dress them up in a novelty gift holder.  Here is a Cracker Gift Holder made with the Envelope Punch Board.

P1100630

So how can you make it??  Check out the tutorial below.

1. METRIC: Cut card 14.8cmx14.8cm. Score your card at 6cm and 12cm. Fold on the score lines.

    IMPERIAL: Cut card to 6″x6″.  Score your card at 2 3/8″ and 4 6/8″.  (I hope those sound right as I am not too sure of the correct way to represent it!!).  Fold on the score lines.

2..On the folded edge, line the left hand side of the card on the Envelope Punch Board at 2.5cm (1″). Punch.  It is a bit hard to punch through so press firmly.

P1100785

Flip your card over to the other end. Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and Punch.

 P1100786

3.  Now punch on the front bottom edge of the holder.  It is easier to open it out. Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and punch.  Then flip and punch at 2.5cm (1″) on the other end.

P1100788

4. Fold up where the narrow scored line is. Does this make sense?? The part that forms the pocket.  Turn it over.  Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and punch, flip the holder over and punch again at 2.5cm (1″) on the other end.

This is how it should look when you fold it out.

P1100791

There you have it.  I hope this makes sense.  Please comment/email me if you are unsure.  Sometimes it is hard getting all the details in writing.

To assemble this, add Sticky Strip inside on the narrow edge on both ends.  Adhere together to form a pocket. Now decorate it as you like and then add your Gift Card.

Why not make it a Stampin’ Up! Gift card to give this Christmas??  These ones are available especially from me (Australian residents only).

Now go and enjoy making your own Christmas Cracker Gift Card Holder.

Until next time,

Jenny

LET’S CATCH UP – THINLETS AND AN ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD!

I am a little behind with my blogging lately.  Life is busy and with Josh studying on the computer a lot at the moment with the HSC I have had little access to the computer. BUT I am here now.  Just squeezing in a little time while he is still in bed!

By now you would have known about the wonderful new products released just this past week.  I thought I would show you what I have been doing with them.

Firstly, have you seen the new Thinlets Card dies??? These make fun, interactive cards in no time.  Check them out.

thinlits_flyerTH_demo_10.13_SP

These come in the Labels shape or  the circle and come with lots of other fun bits to add to your cards.  They are $55.95.  I had a chance to play with Leonie’s circle thinlets the other day as I am still waiting on mine to arrive.  (Thank you Leonie). Here is a fun, birthday card to create.

 P1100508

P1100509

I have used the set ‘Sketched Birthday’ and the paper is from ‘Birthday Basics’.  This is really a great pack of paper.  I think it gets lost in the catalogue.  Leonie kindly gave me a piece.  (Thanks again Leonie!!!).  You are a star 🙂

I think it was the 1 3/4″ circle punch I used to punch the circle in Summer Starfruit card and the Whisper White scallop circle is the 1 3/4″ scallop circle.  I added a little bling to this too.

P1100489

Now on to the Envelope Punch Board.  I have been having so much fun with this new little gadget. You MUST have one of these.  Not only does it cut up to 66 different size envelopes BUT there are so many other fun boxes and projects you can do with it PLUS it has a corner rounder punch on it if you need one for any of your projects.

Demo_Header_EnvelopePunch

Here are some little treat pouches I have been making with them.

P1100493

Made with the ‘Sweater Weather DSP’ and ‘Label Love’ stamp set.  I added a little Burlap Ribbon. Add a little treat and this might be a good one for the men in your life???

How about a Christmas one with the ‘Season of Style’ DSP.

P1100492

The label is from ‘Chalk Talk’ and stamped in Gumball Green.  The ornament is one from the ‘Best of Christmas’ sets and stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  You could add ribbon and hang these in the Christmas tree with a special Christmas treat.  These are the right size to hold a Gift card.  If you want to make one you can use the Gift card size shown on the Envelope Punch Board.  The original idea came from Angie over at Chic N Scratch here.

Here is a little sneak of another project I created using the Envelope Punch Board.  If you are on my Facebook Business page you would have already seen it.  (BTW: You can click on the link in the right hand column and ‘LIKE’ my page to see my projects I show there).  I will show you the rest of this project in the new few days.

P1100482

So I hope you grab yourself the Thinlets Cards Dies AND the Envelope Punch Board.  I can tell you they are essential 😉

Have a good day however you spend it.

STAMPIN’ UP! BOUTIQUE BOXES!

I have had the Boutique Boxes Kit since the Seasonal Catalogue came out.  I put some together a few months back and then I was so busy with Convention Swaps that I didn’t get back to them.  The other day I was pacing the floor waiting for the delivery man with my preorder (yes, you can relate to that!) and saw them sitting in my craft room.  I thought it was time I got back to finishing them before I started on new projects.  You can find the Boutique Boxes Designer Printed Kit on p25 of the Seasonal Catalogue and it only $13.95.  There are 8 die-cut boxes in the set you assemble (very easily with 1 piece of Sticky Strip). There is also a sheet of paper die-cuts,  Crumb Cake Twine and some buttons.  Everything you need to assemble them!

Boutique Boxes

You will notice there are only 7 here.   Ok, I really stuffed one up and that was filed nicely in my recycling bin. 🙂

On these I used a lot of the embellishments in the set but there was still some over you could add to cards.  I added a Paper Lace Doily on one and Summer Starfruit Scallop circle but you could easily do without them.  These are an ideal size to give a Gift Card in or something small like that. Remember there is only a couple of weeks left of the Seasonal Catalogue so if you want to get any of these products then grab them soon.

Thanks for stopping by.  My Delivery Man arrived.  I have varnished my wood Blocks and need to get creating!!
