Gift Card Holders using Designer Series Paper and Tag Topper Punch

Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, so if you live in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands or United Kingdom, you are eligible to purchase from me, but regardless of where you are from, I do appreciate your visit to my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020.

See below for the specific products included. 

A quick, easy project for using up larger DSP offcuts for a useful purpose today – gift card holders.  I also get to utilize one of my favourite crafting items too, the Tag Topper Punch. 

The sizing of these can be varied, my samples measure:

Large: 3 ½” x 10 ¾” – score at 3½” and 71/8” – completed measurement 35/8” x 3½” 

Medium:  3” x 10¾” – score at 3½” and 71/8” – completed measurement  35/8” x 3”

Small: 2½” x 10” – score at 3 ½ and 7” – completed measurement 33/8” x 2 ½”

Trim your designer series paper depending on which size you require and score on the long side as appropriate.  Fold and burnish the scorelines, then punch both outer edges using the Tag Topper Punch.  The gap in the punch is made to take 2” wide pieces of cardstock or paper, but you can ease the paper into the punch over the top of the grooves to take a wider piece, just ensure the paper is central in the punch.  After punching, you will need to snip off the left-over side pieces. Next, decide which of the sides will become the interior, this needs to be the slightly shorter end of the paper and will require adhesive.  When you have established which side requires the adhesive, run 2 narrow strips of glue on the inside edges, press down and allow to dry.  To keep the gift card holder closed I added a Stampin’ Dimensional to each.

Ease the paper gently over the grooves into the punch
before punching, ensure the paper is central within the punch
cut off all the leftovers as shown after each punch
cutting now complete and ready to glue

These would be so quick to make in bulk in advance if you send lots of gift cards and the storage required is minimal.  Just be mindful that these are aimed at gift cards measuring 21/8” x 33/8”.

Thank you for viewing my project today.  If you make a purchase with me this month for £30 or more (excluding postage) in addition to a thank you card and gift, you will also receive a card kit, which will comprise of three cards to assemble yourself, all papers will be pre-cut for you with the card base, envelopes and any die cuts provided, the only item not provided will be adhesive, as I find the preference of this differs greatly between crafters.

If you wish to place an order, make a note of the item numbers and use the ‘Shop Now’ tab above, available 24/7, not forgetting to use the current  Hostess Code  which is PKH4JDUB  if your order is under £150.  Every customer will receive a thank you gift from me, sent separately from your Stampin’ Up order but please  don’t  select the No Contact option at the check out, as I won’t be able to send you your gift the following month.  Besides this you may also receive a few emails from me about your order.  If your order is over £150 you get to choose your own rewards.

See you next time,
