Aly’s Birthday Gift Card Holder

We celebrated lots of birthdays in the family this past weekend, and one of them is my daughter, Aly's birthday which was back in January!  We've all been either sick, out of town or very busy, so this is the first chance we've had to get together.

While at Leadership Convention in Phoenix in January, I bought Aly the Stampin' Up! watch we could get at Memento Mall this year.  It has four different watch bands that are all Stampin' Up! ribbons!  So for this weekend's celebration, I got her a gift card to a local clothing store for a little something special to wear.  And in Stampin' Up! style, the packaging is everything, right?  Well, here's what I did with the gift card:

I used our beautiful Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and coordinating stamp set, With All My Heart, along with the new Sending Love Epoxy Brads in Real Red.  The new Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch coordinates with the stamp set to punch out the cute image on the front.  I used markers to ink up the sentiment that comes with the set and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  Here's how you make the base: 

  • Cut the designer paper or card stock 4-1/4" x 11"
  • Score that paper at 3", 5-1/2" and 8"
  • Determine which side of the paper you want on the outside and which you'd prefer on the inside.
  • Fold in half and then fold the outside flaps backwards in toward the center.
  • Then apply Sticky Strip to the inside second panel on the 3 edges that do not create the fold for the gift card.  Adhere the two center panels together.
  • Using the 1/2" Circle Punch and the Word Window Punch, create the slit and notch for the gift card to fit into.
