Gift Card Holders

Need a quick and easy way to make some gift card holders, try using the precut, and prescored gift cad enclosures made from Kraft Card Stock by Stampin' Up!  You can run them through your Big Shot and emboss them with your embossing folders, add a belly band made up of ribbon, designer series paper or card stock, and decorate and embellish a variety of ways.  I made the following for the Christmas holidays, but you could use them for any occasion. 
The two above were embossed with the Stylish Stripes and Northern Flurry Embossing Folders and decorated using Nordic Noel DSP, and Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.  Current Stamp Sets used were Wondrous Wreath and the coordinating Framelits, and Festival of Trees for my Merry Little Wish sentiment.

Current products in the two above are the Joy from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies, and the stars were cut out using the Star Framelits. 

The Festival of Trees Stamp Set and Coordinating Punch, White Christmas and Endless Wishes Stamp Sets were used for my last two gift card holders, along with some 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon and Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon.  The bow was made using the Gift Bow Bigz L Die and made with retired Designer Series Paper. 
For my Belly Bands the ribbon length I used was 10" and for my Designer Series Paper belly bands my measurements were 10" x 1 1/2".  I put them on firmly enough so they wouldn't come off, but not too tight that they couldn't easily be removed so I could sell them at craft fairs and show them finished without the actual gift card being inside.   

Along with the products mentioned above here is a better look at an unfinished Gift Card Enclosure.  You get 10 per pack and are a nice value at $5.95 per pack.
