This week’s There She Goes challenge is to create a gift card holder in honor of Father’s Day. There’s a hitch. The project had to include shadow stamping.
Well, as per usual, I did my first gift card holder and forgot the shadow stamping! Doh! I’m going to share it with you anyway
This little box/bag was patterned after a box I found at the local dollar store. I have created a template for it here:
(Note: You will need to increase the size to 100% when printing)
I snagged one of the Home Depot credit brochures while I was picking up DH’s gift cards. I cut the ensignia out and used it on my box. The box was cut from heavy weight frosted acetate (I call it acetate on steroids!).
Here are the deets:
Stamps: Sentiment from There She Goes’ Holidays Galore
Paper: Basic Gray, heavy weight acetate
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories: ribbons, scoring blade, sticky tape, candy dots, dimensionals, xacto knife, shredded paper
Then I decided I had better make another gift card holder (as he is getting two cards!) and this one better be right..lol.
For this one, I cut the basic gray paper to 7 3/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches. I scored the piece at 3/4 inches on both of the long sides and at 3 1/2 and 4 1/4 inches on the short side. Your piece will look like this:
Cut on the dotted lines and fold into a box shape.
For the lid (only orange here), I cut a piece 4 3/4 inches by 4 inches and scored at 1/2 inch on the 4 3/4 inch side. I then took that piece and rolled it slightly on the edge of my table to give it a little curve.
I affixed a piece of sticky tape to the 1/2 inch tab and attached it to the top back of my basic gray box. Then I cut two 1/4″ strips of basic gray paper at 6″ each. I attached the buckles to the ends and put small pieces of velcro on the back of them. The other end is attached to the back with sticky tape. I decorated it with photo corner punches and the sentiment circle (shadow stamping!).
Here are the deets:
Stamps: There She Goes‘ Holidays Galore
Colors: Basic Gray, Only Orange, and GP White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx ~ For the shadow stamping, I stamped once then moved my stamp down and to the right slightly and stamped again.
Accessories: candy dots, buckles, photo corner punch, circle punches, scoring blade, sticky tape, dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a blessed day!
