Gift Card Holder Video

Hello, Crafters.

I 'm really thrilled to tell you that Take 3 yesterday was a great success! 

I uploaded the video earlier today on YouTube, and I'm so pleased I walked away from it on Friday, and came back to it yesterday! 

I'm sharing photographs here of all five Gift Card Holders I've made.

The black snowflakes holder was the one I made in the video that lasted just over an hour!


The second black one with the writing on, is the one I was making when the camcorder ran out of memory!

As I explain in the video, so many gift cards now come as "doubles" where you're supposed to remove the top half, or not, when you give them to the recipient.

I prefer to leave them intact, rather than giving something to someone that's been torn or broken!

Life would be so much easier if all gift cards came in a standard size! But all three gift cards I'm giving for Christmas are different! 

I could have made one that was big enough to hold all sizes, but that's not me!

Below I'm listing names of three gift cards, their size, the size of Designer Series Paper needed for each size, as well as the score line placements. 

Hopefully you'll be able to find one which fits closest to your gift card.
 1). New Look Gift Card: 4 7/8" x 3 3/8" - Designer Series Paper 8" x 6"
Horizontal score: 2 1/8" & 5 7/8"
Vertical Score: ½” & 5 5/8"

2). Amazon Gift Card: 5¼” x 3 5/8" - Designer Series Paper 8 x 6 3/8"
Horizontal score: 2 1/8" & 5 7/8"
Vertical Score: ½” & 6"

3) Fatface Gift Card: 5½” x 4" – Designer Series Paper 8¾” x 6½”
Horizontal score: 2¼” & 6½”
Vertical Score: ½” & 6 1/8"

I send you all my best wishes for a very blessed Christmas to you and your family.  

I'd also like to take this occasion to thank each and every one of you for your support following my blog.

I'll be back on Wednesday, and until then, enjoy this most wonderful time of the year. God bless.
