I think this holder is perfect for a gift card for your local coffee shop. You can make this gift card holder with the Narrow Notecards and Envelopes or make your own cards and envelopes the way I did with the Envelope Punch Board. I used the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. Use Early Espresso ink and one other color to go with the paper you select. I’m afraid the Coffee Break paper is sold out now, but you could stamp your own images with the coffee bean stamp from the set. My label uses the border stamp from Labels to Love. The greeting from Coffee Café fits perfectly.

I was so excited to see a zipper card done by Jennifer Pauli. I couldn’t wait to try one. Unzipping the card made me excited to open it and I already knew what was inside! The secret of the zipper is the Framelit with the line of dots. I added lots of shine and glitz. Try it!

Make this box with the Gift Box Punch Board. It’s one of those extra sizes I added in this expanded chart. Add a tag and a cute little gingerbread man holding shiny peppermint candies. The box is just right to hold a gift card and a few candies.

I used the Triple Banner Punch that can make tags 1″, 1 1/2″, and 2″ wide. The Scallop Tag Topper punch is designed for 2″ wide tags, but I share a tip for making narrower tags.

20151105_162441_resizedThis is my personal Christmas card this year. I just love it! When you pull the ribbon up, the ornament rises and an inside greeting is displayed. There is a pocket that I used for a photo for most. A few people received a gift card in their cards.

You Brighten My Day Mini Treat Bag 2-21-15I enjoyed making this mini treat bag.  It’s got sparkly stars all over it.  My group filled them with chocolate, but you could put note cards or diamonds.  Any of those would brighten my day.

Sweetheart BYOPI just love the B.Y.O.P. stamp set!  It’s made just for giving gift cards.  It’s made to coordinate with the Gift Card Envelop & Trims Thinlits Dies, but I made a few adjustments to make it with the Envelope Punch Board.  The written directions include both versions.  A 1/4 sheet of the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper is a perfect fit for either version.
