Gift Card Holder

Let's begin, here's what you need to create this GC...

  • Paper Cutter (which will double as a scoring tool
  • Scallop Punch
  • Paper Crimper
  • Scor Tool
  • Sentiment Stamp
  • Adhesive (ATG GUN)
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Digital Image printed fr my computer
  • Cardstock size 4-1/4" x 8-1/2"
  • Cardstock size 1" x 8-1/2"
  • DS Paper size 3" x 4"
I have to hurry - because I'm heading out to take Cy to his 4 yr physical check up... poor thing.. he doesn't know that he'll be getting 2-3 shots today.... yikes!!! I'll let you all know how it goes....

Step One... Take the 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" cardstock, and score @ 1-5/8":

Slide the CS over, and score at 5-1/4":

Here's what it'll look like after scoring:

Now you're going to add adhesive to the 2 sides of the shorter scored section, where I've typed "adhesive" is where it would go:

Fold the shorter flap up, and you have the section where your card will fit in:

Now fold the top part over, and you are going to take the DS paper, and adhere to the other side of the flap... I like this DS paper - it's from DCWV's Christmas Pack...

Here's what it'll look like, neatly layered n' all:

Now take the 1" x 8-1/2" cardstock, and run through the paper crimper, crank, crank, crank all the way through....

Take the crimped cardstock, and wrap around the GC holder. Connect the ends in the front of your holder, so that it will be hidden by the image you are about to adhere to it.

Take your image that was punched out using the Scallop Punch, and then adhere to the crimped cardstock piece. Then stamp your sentiment in the black ink pad, and stamp it directly unto the DS paper...

Mini Bow Tying with 2 Fingers

Hello there... welcome to my blog!  I have a tutorial for you today... I don't really know if anyone will find this handy, but I've seen tutorials on tying a mini bow using a fork, and I just don't like that the bows are not plump, they are flat, and so I wanted to try other ways that would make the bows rounders, and thought maybe using my 2 fingers would do the trick, and they did!!  And so, I'm going to show you how I did it!!!  

Step 1:  Wrap the ribbon around your pointer finger and middle finger, and crisscross over each other like this:

Step 2: Take the ribbon on the top, and stick it between your 2 fingers:

 Step 3: Take the ribbon that is facing you, and bring it to the right like this:

You should have both ends of your ribbon crisscrossed on one side, and both ends facing up on the other side like this:

Step 4: Now tie the 2 ends together, tightly...  I used my teeth to help me at this step.  

You can make another knot to tighten it, but the flip side of the ribbon will look like this:

Here is my finished mini bow....

Here are mini bows I created in a matter of minutes!!

Aren't they all soooo cute??  I used these on Baby Shower purse favors which I will be posting tomorrow... come back then to check them out and how cute these adorable ribbons add to them, ok??

Have a blessed day!!!  Here's a scripture that I pray will bless your day!!
