Full Size Gift Card Holder with Polar Bear

Greetings TCP Friends!  It’s Christine here today with another new idea for the 12 Days of Crafting!  If you’re like me, even though I love to give personalized gifts, there are times when you have to resort to a gift card.  Have you noticed that most gift cards these days on the rack at a store come much larger, with a section that hangs on the display rack.  I think this larger size is a bit better so that those gift cards don’t get lost. So, I decided to design a gift card holder that would accomdate that larger size.  

I'll show you a few pictures of the process and then some more pictures of the finished tag holder.  

Gift Card Holder Tutorial 1

Here you can see I’ve cut the holder from a piece of Kraft cardstock and scored it at 3 1/2, and then scored a little 1/2 inch tab.  Then it’s all about the decorating, I stamped some retired TCP potage stamps in white craft ink first.

Next, I stamped some red postmarks, then added a retired TCP die cut postage frame.

I used a circle punch to cut out “ticket” half circles, and brought in the Copic coloured image from the very cute I Like Big Gifts digi set from November’s Release.  I adore this cute polar bear!

Here you can see the outside holder put together and the gift card insert I created to slide inside, it’s a great place to write your greeting for the gift card, and a neat feature is that the gift card “ties” into the tag holder using the baker’s twine.

You can see that the hole you use to hang it on the gift card dispay at the store makes a great spot to tie it into your insert!

And now you can see the Gift Card Holder pulled a part, and you can just see a peek of blue where the gift card is behind the tag.

All in all, a pretty sweet and easy design for those last minute gifts!  Thanks for joining me for today’s episode of the 12 Days of Crafting!
