Pop Up Gift Card Holder Tutorial

  1. On Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Real Red Cardstock 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″
    OPTIONAL: Emboss with Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Big Shot Machine
    Cut at 5″ on long side
     -With larger piece (4-1/4″ x 5″) score @ 1-1/4″ and 3-1/2″ on long side 
     -With smaller piece (4-1/4″ x 3-1/2″)  score at 1-1/4″ on short side
  2. (see photo below) With Bone Folder, fold back and burnish the score lines from both pieces that are 1-1/4″ from edge. (If you have embossed them, make sure the same embossed/debossed sides are up). Apply Tear & Tape adhesive to edges on one piece. Align them together, remove paper and “kiss” them to form the pocket for the gift card. pop up gift card holder, tutorial step 2, nothing sweeter, stampin up, stampin savvy, tammy beard

  4. With the Detailed Trio Punch, round the corners from the larger piece (that still has a score line)pop up gift card holder, tutorial step 3, nothing sweeter, stampin up, stampin savvy, tammy beard

  6. On separate scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, stamp present in same ink colors as above and stamp TO/FROM from Sincerely Santa Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Die-cut with coordinating Sweetly Stitched Framelits Die (see photo above).
  7. On Stampin’ Trimmer cut a 1-3/4″ x 6″ strip from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper to form the belly band. This will go around the gift card holder and keep the gift card from falling through.
  8. Fold the last score line on the holder in towards the gift card pocket and fold it closed. Wrap belly band LOOSELY around outside of holder (you want it to be loose enough to easily slip off) and pinch folds; secure ends with Tear & Tape Adhesive (see photo below).pop up gift card holder, festive farmhouse belly band, stampin up, stampinup, stampin savvy, tammy beard9.  Cut a 3″ piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and 3-1/2″ piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
