Gift Card Holders

Friday's Free-4-All Project at Bella Blvd: Creative Ways To Give Gift Cards
The Design Team has made some really clever and unique can see them all at

To create this gift card holder choose any shape die-cut (larger than a gift card) and have 
a roll of foam adhesive handy to make a pocket.

 After die-cutting the shape, place the gift card on the back and mark its placement 
(depending on how much of the card you want to show). Adhere the foam tape to the edge of
 the markings and then attach to the card front. The gift card will slide down into the pocket with ease. 
Layer on a smaller die-cut shape, buttons and cute stickers!

Supplies: Countdown to Christmas- Believe Paper; Borders Paper; Christmas Paper; Tree Park Paper; Alpha+Bits; Button Market- Tie Dye

Find a die-cut shape that is a bit larger than a gift card and cut it out twice. 
I've used this cute jar shape by Sizzix and stitched the front and back papers together with 
a zig-zag stitch around the edge.

 Decorate the front with a border of photo-corner stickers that have been layered together and top 
with a sentiment sticker. Quick, easy and a great stocking stuffer!
Supplies: Christmas Countdown: Alpha+Bits, O Tannenbaum, Daily Details, Captions

That's all for today!  Things are winding down for the 2013 year and
I don't have too many projects waiting in the wings to share before Christmas.
Manufacturers are focused on the Winter CHA show and those of us lucky
enough to create things for their booths will be working steadily between now
and the New Year.  Lots of great things to look forward to and I can't
wait to see all of those lovely new releases and share in the excitement with all of you :)


  1. These are adorable! Love the idea of creating a pocket on the card front with foam tape! :)

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
