I just can’t believe all the cool and adorbs stuff in the new Occasions Catalog! As soon as I received the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits I pulled out some Designer Series Paper and created this great masculine Gift Card Holder. I don’t know what’s up, but I’m on a masculine roll. The Burlap ribbon just makes this, don’t you think?
The bag is made from Designer Series Paper from my stash (Under The Tree). The band is leftover from the bag and Sahara Sand and edge trimmed from the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon. The Celebrate is from the new “Celebrate Today” stamp set. I stamped on Sahara Sand in Garden Green and fussy cut to give a look of movement, then layered onto Crumb Cake and finally Garden Green. The pull out is also Sahara Sand layered onto Garden Green. I wanted to create a pull to interior Gift Card holder and after a bit of reflection and “duh” moment I stapled a ribbon loop. I went “what the heck” and decided to staple to the ribbon. Using staples on a card is a first for me. Hmmm……….. We’ll see if this technique makes a return in the future. Hey, at least it has a wee bit of bling! To create the card holder tabs I took a scrap circle and hand drew and cut the half circles on both sides of the gift card.
I’m always on the lookout for masculine ideas and I’m really excited with the result. Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a great weekend.
