Two Tags Gift Card Holders

It's time again for my Thrifty 3D Wednesday idea over on Stamping 411!  This month I decided to use the Two Tags die to make a great gift card holder!  My friend, Mary Brown, brought one as a Make & Take to our downline meeting using Party this Way.  I don't think she has it posted yet, but when she does, I'll include a link here.    I used her template to dress it up for the upcoming holidays!  Stampin' Up!'s Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set is perfect to fit inside the circles on the pull out card holder!

 

Here is a picture of them closed.

 

 

And here is one open!  The tag portion is folded over and stapled under the Scallop Circle decoration so it holds the gift card snug inside.

 

 

For mine, I used the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper along with Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I used the 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches for the opening on the sleeve and 1 1/4, 1 3/8 and Scallop Circle punches for the end of the Tag.  I also used the Word Window and Modern Label punches for the words Very Merry!  You KNOW I'm a BIG punch lover!  lol!

 

I have a step-by-step picture tutorial for you over on Stamping 411 today!  These really are fun and easy to make!  Let me know what you think and when you make some for yourself!

Oh Connie, I love these.  I've already sat down and made 2 of the holders – but still have to buy these tag dies to finish them.  TFS – they will be put in my stash for next year.
