I hope you have been enjoying your weekend. I have been super busy creating a homemade lucky door prize for my next workshop. I’m super pleased with this creation and I hope the person that wins it loves it as much as I do.
Inspiration for the gift cards came from a fab little blog hosted by Debby Hughes called Lime Doodle. Isn’t that a great name? The little banners caught my eye and I just had to use them on this set. I made them by cutting 1cm x 3cm strips from scraps of my current favourite paper. I then used the 3.2cm square punch to punch the tails. It takes a bit of lining up to get it right but is much neater and easier than using snips.
Miss Fancy Pants provided me with inspiration for the gift holder. I have changed the measurements on mine to ensure the gift cards and envelopes fit. I cut a 9cm strip of the designer series paper. I scored across at 9cm, 13cm and 22cm and rounded off the end at 24.5cm using one of my large ribbon holders to mark up. Here is the template.
I have tied ribbon around the top of the lower flap and the top flap slides behind the ribbon to close. You may also notice that I have positioned the tag so that the flap can be held behind it to keep it all in place. I’ve tied the gift cards and envelopes onto the holder using ribbon. I will share another example tomorrow where I have tied a cellophane bag filled with Easter eggs on to the back of the holder.
I’ve entered the holder into the CAS-ual Friday challenge.
