Boy/Girl Holiday Gift Card Holders

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share some holiday gift card holder ideas perfect for boys or girls.  Have you tried the pop-up dies yet from We R Memory Keepers?  What fun these dies are!  I used the Pop-Up Gift Box die to create these gift card holders.

My first card I made was for my daughter.  I used the Urban Chic collection to decorate the card and box, but only a few touches were necessary with such an interactive card.

gift-card-holders-by-wendy-antenucci-2

I die cut the box from white cardstock because I knew I wanted to use the Teal Chevron Washi tape to decorate the box.  Every girl needs some bling, so after punching twirls and poinsettia leaves from the font punches I added in some red gemstones for a girly touch.

For my son’s card, I wanted to create a woodsy type card, so I used the Hello Five collection.  The blue plaid with the addition of some mountains, a raccoon, and the star, my snowman made the card front. For a step by step video tutorial for making the gift card holders, visit my YouTube channel HERE.

I chose to decorate the inside of my card with a snowy scene for my snowman.  I cut my Pop-Up Gift Box again with the plaid and blue star to decorate my box.  The red chevron washi tape added a pop of Christmas to my box and the green font punch pieces were the finishing touch to my card.

Design Tip:  Adding quick messages to your cards is so easy with the use of the Typewriter and Typecast labels (especially when you’ve already assembled your card)!

A few gift cards later and I have small personalized gifts that I am able to give to my children, friends, and family!  Thanks so much for joining me today, have fun creating for your holidays!

Birthday Pop-Up Gift Box Card

Hello, We R readers, Laura here! Some of my nieces and nephews are getting older and no longer want toys for their birthdays. I like to do gift cards because then they can buy whatever they want from a store I know they will love. However, I feel like giving a gift card by itself can be a little boring. The new pop-up gift card holder dies are perfect for creating a special card you can use to give a gift card that makes it so much more fun!

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-1

To start creating your card, you will need to cut out one box and two smaller card holder pieces from double-sided cardstock using the pop-up gift box dies and the Evolution Advanced. Using the magnetic mat really helps to keep everything in place.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-2

To assemble the gift box, you will start by adhering the two card holder pieces together and then folding in the middle. The half circle notches will line up once folded in half.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-4

 

Fold back the ends of the card holder and adhere to the third square on the box die cut.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-5

Then, you will fold the opposite ends of the card holder back and adhere to the first square on the box die cut. (This is the one with the first triangle flap.) Adhere the flap on the end of the gift box to the opposite side to close the box.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-6

To attach the box to your card, you will adhere each of the triangle edges on the bottom of the gift card box to either side of the fold on your card. I created a card base from textured cardstock. My card is 5 ½ x 5 ½ inches wide and was the perfect size for adding the pop-up gift card box.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-7

I embellished the front of the card with elements from the Flower Girl collection. I started with a frame. Added a “happy” sticker and a little goose sticker. I finished it off with the word “birthday!” using gold thickers.

birthday-pop-up-gift-box-card-by-laura-silva-8

This pop-up gift card box birthday card is the perfect way to send or give a gift card to someone special. And since you are cutting out all the pieces yourself, the possibilities are endless for designs, styles and holidays. These cards would make wonderful Christmas gifts as well, simply by changing out the sentiment on the front.

Thanksgiving Hostess Gift

Hello friends! Eva Pizarro here today sharing quick hostess gift made for this Thanksgiving party.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-1

I love all the Thanksgiving theme gifts but for me nothing is more meaningful than some kind words. For this gift I made a geometric planter and added a card made with the Gift Card Holder die set. Instead of a gift card I placed a note thanking my friends for inviting us to their first Thanksgiving party!

To make the card, simply use your Evolution Advanced to cut all the pieces of your Gift card Holder Set. I used the new Typecast Collection mixing blue, wood grain and copper colors.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-2

Change your ink color to Gold and use your Typecast Typewriter to write a thank you note for your hostess.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-3

Cut your paper and round the edges with your Corner Chomper to fit your Gift card holder

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-4

To make the planter Use your Trim And Score Board and your Triangle Score Guide. Just follow the instructions on the booklet. I scored my lines every 1 ½ inch.

Score your diagonal lines in one direction and your straight lines in the other one.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-5

Place your succulent in a can and make some holes on the bottom for better drainage. Wrap your paper over the can gluing your paper with some hot glue gun in a few spots.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-6

If your paper is not long enough attach another piece making sure you line up the triangles.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-7

Finally insert a wooden stick on your succulent to hold your card.

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-8

I think the Gift Card Holder set is perfect for a sweet message!

hostess-gift-by-eva-pizarro-9

I think my friend is going to be thrilled with the plant and the card. Do you bring hostess gifts to your parties?

Have a great day!
