Our annual holiday crafting kickoff is always such a good time. You would think I could remember to take some photos during the day – but no…
This clever bag a la gift card holder was inspired by Cathy Parlitsis. The big, beautiful bow from the Sizzix Bigz Bow die seemed like a natural on the front! The bag is folded to create a pocket on the front as well as one at the top for a little note card.
I fiddled around with different ways of making the gift card accessible from the pocket, but ultimately found that a simple solution worked the best. This is just a piece of card stock folded with enough offset to create a little tab at the top. There’s a piece of washi across the front and a little message at the top – you could do more, but why? This was handled a lot during our classes, so I used a glue dot to secure the gift card to the “lifter”, but it really isn’t necessary.
I’m looking forward to playing with this idea a little more – the variations are endless. I guess that’s what we all love so much about stamping, isn’t it? If you’d like to learn more, I hope you’ll join the Maui Stampers team. For just $25 you’ll get a business pack to get you rolling plus $26.95 in Stampin’ Up! product. There’s no risk and oh-so-much to gain – learn more HERE
