SU LateNightStampers Challenge / Gift card/money holder


Good Tuesday Morning to you all and hope you are having a wonderful day.  Our challenge this week for our LateNightStampers, LNS, group is to make a gift card holder or money holder.  And, I used the top note die and one of my favorite Christmas sets, Snow Much Fun to make this great gift card holder.  I actually learned how to do this one from Nancy Lewis, my demonstrator.  She is so talented.

Here is the inside of the holder and how you would open it.


It is put together with a brad and you just slide it to either side.

Now here it is with cash, which is how I will use it for my niece.


And now with a gift card.


Isn't it just the cutest. I love it and so easy.

Just a mini tutorial: Cut out two red pieces of the card stock using the Top Note Die and the Big Shot or whatever cutting system you may have.  Then cut two of the Whisper White card stock.  One of the whisper white you will trim around the edge that is dotted by the cutting to make the red show as a border around it.  Stamp whatever you would like onto this piece and then attach this to one of the red pieces.  Take the other Whisper White piece of card stock and cut it in half at the center points.  Adhere it to the bottom of the other red piece of card stock.  Decorate as you would like.  I used the scallop border punch to cut out a border in the red glitter paper.  Put the two together by using a brad or whatever else you would like to use.  That is all there is to it.  So easy yet so cute.

Hi Jonia, your card/money holder is adorable. I love how it's attached with that cute glittery brad. Very creative!

Thank you for visiting my blog and your sweet words. The show was a lot of fun and I look forward to doing more in the future.
