Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas with Melanie and Brenda! I am kicking off the celebration with this simple, but adorable, gift card holder!
Last year, my friend Brenda Nelson (Stamps & Stretchy Pants) and I hosted a 12 Days of Christmas. Well, it was so much fun, we decided to do it again this year! For the next 12 days, we will share holiday inspiration and ideas with you to get in the holiday spirit. I hope you hop along with us each day, and enjoy our creations!
I don’t know about you, but for me, gift cards have certainly become a mainstay in the holiday gifting. But, who wants to give a plain gift card! These boxes are the answer, and are so cute. I have added a simple belly band created with this basic pattern from the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper collection. The tag is stamped using the adorable Trucking Along Stamp Set. Yes, I know the truck is super cute, but there are other great stamps in this set, too!
The box looks so cute to gift, but simply slide the belly band off to get to the loot! These boxes come with a gift card holder insert, but if you leave it out, you could use the box for a small gift or treat as well!
For a little glitz, I tied it with the Real Red & Gold Dotted Ribbon, brought in some More Dazzle Specialty Paper, and added a few Festive Pearls.
The One Horse Open Sleigh and Real Red & Gold Dotted Ribbon are items from the Online Exclusives section of my online store. I love these items! They offer even more selection for seasonal items. Don’t forget to check out that section periodically for the latest product releases!
To Create This Project
- Cut (2) 6″ x 2″ strips of designer series paper
- Die -cut a Basic White label using the Timeless Arrangements label dies
- Layer on a piece of More Dazzle Specialty Paper cut 2 3/8″ x 1 5/8″
Assemble box. Stamp sentiment on gift card holder insert in Memento Black ink and place in box. Adhere the (2) strips of designer series paper together to create a long strip, and wrap around box. Adhere ends together being careful not to adhere to box. Tie a ribbon bow around the belly band. Stamp sentiment and presents in Memento Black ink on label. Color as desired with Stampin’ Blends. Layer with the More Dazzle Specialty Paper. Adhere to box with dimensionals. Embellish with pearls as desired.
