Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I want to share a quick gift card holder I created.
I cut two roofs, two windows, one half window, one door and one chimney diecuts from patterned cardstock. I backed all windows with vellum before adhering to the house/pocket stitch lit I also adhere roof to the top of the diecut. Before adding the door cut another piece of cardstock slightly larger than the door and adhere behind the door before adding to the house/pocket. Also add a sequin and a glossy dot to the door.
I cut another house/pocket but cut sides down so it will fit into the pocket. I adhered the chimney diecut to the pull out and cut and add a patterned cardstock mat to pull out.
I punched two different size circles from a piece of patterned cardstock and adhere the smaller circle on top of the larger circle. I cut two medium flowers and one small flower from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. I applied a dot of adhesive in the center of both medium flowers and placed one of the flowers on top of the other flower and pinched both flowers in the center and shape.
I inked the glass tray with Pink Chalk Ink, add water and cover the small flower with ink mixture. Once dry I added a mini gem to the center of the flower and adhere to the center of the larger flower and glued the flower and leaf sprig to the circle tag. I created a bow with cording and adhere underneath the flower on the circle tag. I punched a hole at the end of the book plate, circle punch and the top of the house pocket and added cording to the book plate and circle and tie to the top of the of the house pocket.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am back with a quick gift card holder for this month’s blog hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull! If you are like me and you give a lot of gift cards at Christmas but don’t have them on hand or the wrong theme this House Gift Card Holder is the perfect solution.
I started by cutting two of the house dies from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Collection. The lighter patterned cardstock I cut a part and adhered to the inside of the card (the cardstock that will be seen once the flip/door is open on the card….back wall and door). Next I glued the sides and once dry I inked the edges.
I added trim, Ric Rac and button to the roof of the house and tied gold metallic thread around the button. From the cut a parts in the same collection I use my circle punch to punch out the snowflake. I adhered the top portion of the circle to the card, added a Dew Drop and sequins. This will keep the flip/door closed. Also from the same cut a parts I added the season’s greeting sentiment to the door and I adhered a dew drop and sequins to create a door knob.
This is a very easy card to create and you can knock out several in an hour!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am here to share another quick Christmas project for the Robin’s Nest. I give a lot of gift cards as presents and it seems like I am either running out to buy a card holder boxes or my mom is always needing one. I try and stock up after Christmas when everything is half off but sometimes I can’t find those in the already picked over selection of Christmas items. I figured since I have this Bath and Body gift card box why not alter it into something Christmasy/Winter that can be used for the season?
The more info on this project please go HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Hi everyone! I created a card for my son’s girlfriend. Her birthday was yesterday and we won’t be getting together until later on but I just had to share. 🙂
She fosters dogs until she can find a forever home so I thought I would do something in a dog theme for her.
I cut a 6″x6″ piece of striped cardstock for the front of the card, cut a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Gold and Pink Daisy Glitter Cardstock, inked the edges and then adhered to the base. Next I printed out the dog digi image and fussy cut it out, stamped the “enjoy” sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and then I glued cut frames of cardstock for the sentiment and dog image, adhered each to the frame and then to the base. I finished off with punched flowers which I shaped, butterfly, ribbon, baker’s twine and dew drops.
I admit it! I have tons of buttons stored in jars, boxes and even little baggies from the many swaps I have participated in the past and for me it is sometimes hard to turn loose of them and use them in my projects. But I would like to share a quick gift card holder/wall decoration that is easy to create using buttons and an empty toilet paper roll. Are you ready to get started? 🙂
First off I painted the toilet paper roll inside and out. Once dry dry I flattened the roll which I ran it through my Sizzix die cutting machine to flatten it but if you don’t have one you can use a bone folder to get crisp edges. I used the Tim Holtz Scallops die on the bottom of the TP roll and the top I embossed with Geometric Ring embossing folder. Then I applied mod lodge on the outside, let dry and the inside the scalloped bottom added a thin line of mod lodge and clipped together with clothes pin and let dry.
Next I adhered a ban of cardstock from the Happy Travels Paper Pad right below the embossing on the TP roll, added lace, ribbon and seam binding bow to the outer edge of the roll. I cut a 10″ piece of seam binding for the handle and adhered each end to the inside of the roll. Then I finished it off with flowers that I punched out from one of the Text Pages, shaped just a little, layered and adhered together and topped off with hemp cord and a button.
I cut one of the Victorian Labels out and glued to a piece of cardstock, added gathered lace, hemp cord and buttons in various spots along with a couple of paper flowers to finish off this re-purposed and now useful project.
I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you have any questions please let me know.
