SQUIGGLEFLY Time . . .

Happy Monday Everyone!

It's with great sadness that I'm sharing my LAST creation as a Squigglefly DT Member with you today.  My time with Squigglefly has been wonderful and if you are looking for a very well organized, fun DT to be a part of, let me know and I will lead you to the right people to talk to!!!  Thanks so much Holly for the opportunity to create with these wonderful images and to be a part of such a amazing group of talented ladies!

Today Kim has asked us to create a Gift Card Holder and I knew immediately which image I would use.  I just LOVE this Kris Kringle image by Marla Shega. I thought the Basic Grey "Jovial" designer paper would be the perfect match with this awesome digi image.

The scrap piece of plaid paper left from my creation worked perfectly on the envelope flap.

Sorry for the blurriness of this last photo but hopefully you can see it well enough to know that it's a very easy design for gift card giving.  A couple months ago I had the tutorial on my blog for making these gift card holders but to save you have to bounce back to that posting, here is the 'short version'.

  • Using a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock, cut at 4" which will give you THREE stripes to be turned into holders.
  • Score at 5" and 10" ... the 2" end will get folded inward (to make the gift card pocket) and the 5" fold will make the front of your card.
  • After tacking down the top/bottom of the gift card holder panel (using a strong adhesive, like Redline or Scoretape) you can decorate both the front of the card and the gift card pocket panel to your liking.

I hope you enjoyed my creation and please be sure to hop over to the challenge blog and check out the amazing creations by my team mates.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
