Birthday Gift Card!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

It is Pam from Stamper at Heart Blog Spot

I know now a days that so many young people like gift cards.  And it really takes all the thrill out of hunting for the perfect gift!  However it is a lot easier and faster to get the gift card.  So to make it a little more personal I decided to make the gift card holder!

Designer steps:
1.  Start with a 4 1/8 x 9 3/4 piece of white card stock.  Score at 2 1/8, 5, 6 and 7.  Fold as shown this is the inside of the gift card

 2.  Flip the card over and glue the mountain fold (which is now the vally fold) together.  Then flip the card back over

 3.  Cut 4 pieces of DP at 4 x 2 3/4 and cut 2 pieces at 2 x 4.  Working on the inside of the card glue one of the 4 x 2 3/4 down as shown

 4.  On the inside glue the flap for the card holder down with a tiny lines of glue on both of the far left and right edges and then push it down onto the DP

 5.  Still working on the inside glue the 2 x 4 inch DP to the top flap and glue the 2 3/4 x 4 piece of DP to the bottom half of the gift card

 6.  Flip the card over and glue down the DP to the front of the card

7.  Next cut out the cupcake using the  Cottage Cutz Stitched Cupcake die also using Cottage Cutz Celebrate die cut out the sentiment.   Assemble the pieces

8.  Glue to the front flap as shown

 9.  Flip the card over and add a sentiment just below the pocket for the gift card and add a small velcro dot for secure closing

I hope you give this project a try!  It is very versatile!  I use it for weddings, baby showers, and of course Christmas!

* Just a note we are moving to a larger warehouse so ordering will be set to start on Sept. 20th
