Vintage style, modern convenience

gift-card-holder-spring-07023-web.jpgI needed a gift card holder and found this cute and easy design from Paper Crafts thanks to mckeans23 of splitcoaststampers. Of course, I had to use more of these gorgeous Au Chocolat papers, especially since I had scraps from the other day just sitting there.

I made a few design changes (surprise, surprise), namely the ribbon attachment (slot hole punch on the outside flap – easy peasy) and a scalloped edge (small corner rounder without the guard).

The instructions on the website don’t provide all the details, so here’s the basic run-down: cut double-sided paper (or cardstock) to 3-1/2 x 11. Score at 3-1/2 and 7-3/4. Cut/scallop the longer flap (and cut/scallop the shorter side too if you want). Glue the edges only of the shorter flap to the inside of the card. Embellish as desired and voila!

Ingredients as shown: Warm Words stamp set, Au Chocolat designer-series paper, brown textured cardstock (DCWV), and Very Vanilla cardstock; chocolate grosgrain ribbon; Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Pad; sponge; Slot Hole, Daisy, Small Corner Rounder, Large Oval, 1/16 and 1/8 handheld punches; Hodgepodge Hardware (large oval frame and brads); making memories brad.

    Hey. you used Hodgepodge Hardware.. Guess I’ll stop hoarding :} It’s really inexpensive to purchase the kit at 26.95, you get so much more than buying junk individually at stores but it’s hard fo rme to use.. :{
