Ornament Gift Card Holder

Project #6: Ornament Gift Card Holder - I absolutely LOVE this project because it is unique in style and has a purpose. NOT my idea - it the fabulous Carolina's (visit her blog for more fabulous fun projects). She has a video so that saves me from a long post! I loved her colors used so I even CASed that! Finished project is 4" x 4". The only change I made was for the Hanger and the message. I knew my guests would love this project, too.

Here's the Ornament:

This is what is needed to make this project:
(1) 4” x 8” Merry Moments DSP, Score along the 8” side @4”
(1) Big Shot Scallop #2 in Very Vanilla
(1) 2-7/8” Circle in Real Red or Old Olive
(1/2) of the 2-7/8” Circle in Real Red CS or Old Olive CS
(2) 9-1/2” cut 5/8” wide Real Red or Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
(1) Knotted Bow: approximately 12” in length of 5/8" wide ribbon needed
(1) 5” cut Silver Elastic Cord

Fold DSP in half, use the Round tab punch through both layers on the open ends:

Start to attach vertical ribbon, using mini glue dots

Attach "skinny" (1/8" wide ) Sticky Tape to each inside edge, Remove the back of the sticky tape and close. Starting at the front of the holder, wrap the remainder ribbon horizontally around and secure with a mini glue dot. Attach tied bow to the front with a mini glue dot.

The money holder: Use Tombow adhesive only around the curved section and position on top the Old Olive circle. This will make the pouch. Attach the Round Tab with sticky tape. Use the 1/16" punch and thread the elastic cord through. You're done!!!!
  • Stamps: Oval All

  • Ink: Real Red or Old Olive
