Christmas Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! This is Chris from Get Inspired With ChatterScene posting my first post as an official Sassy Lady
Design Team member! Ty Sheila for having me on the team. It is such a privilege.

Today I wanted to share this Christmas Gift Card Holder. I seen this idea on you tube forever ago. Wish I could remember the link so I could share it with you all. I love giving them out and the recipients love them too!

First cut a double sided piece of 12 by 12 card stock 4 1/2 by 12 inches.

And score it at 4,6, and 8. 

Then cut a slot in the middle bend just large enough to slide a gift card into.

Sit card aside and glue the middle together.

Cut two pieces of coordinating card stock to fit inside the way you want it to. Stamp your sentiment. I used Crafty Sprouts -- Have a Cool Yule.

Next I used a SU punch and stamp. And applied some glitter.

Then finished up my bow and sentiment on front of gift card holder.

Thank you so much for looking:)

What a great idea. I have a slew of birthday cards to make in the next couple of weeks and this would be perfect for the gift cards!

hi i just found your blog and i thought you might be able to answer a question Google didn't give. I am thinking about buying a gypsy from someone that has 217 preloaded carts. they want $300 for it (is that a good deal?). i didn't know if i can hook the gypsy up to my cricut cake and cut all 217 carts. i don't think they actually own the physical carts though. thanks, Joy

Great Gift Card Holder Card Chris, thanks for the wonderful tutorial too
Congratulations on your official first Sassy Lady DT spot :)

They need to give you the carts with the sale and that is a deal I would jump on. Seriously a bad update can cause a problem where they have to reboot your gypsy it would take you to no carts! The ula agreement states that if you sell your gypsy the carts must go with it.

Sorry I am traveling and having a hard time doimg this from phone. Dont buy any used gypsy unless they give you the PHYSICAL carts with it.
