The scallop envelope die is slightly too narrow to fit a gift card if die cut as is. Here is a photo tutorial on how to make the gift card holder.
|Use a 6x6 piece of Designer Series Paper and the Scallop envelope die The Candlelight Christmas paper is shown here.|
|2. Fold the paper loosely in half. Don't press to hard on the fold line. Line up with the die, with the fold line towards the center.|
|Leave 3 scallops still showing on the edge and die cut.|
|4. Now for the sewing part, using the new Cherry Cobbler Tulle cut a piece as long as 6 scallops.|
|5. Fold in half length wise with one side slightly longer than the other.|
|6. Use a running stitch along the folded edge.|
|7. Gather the ends together and attach a Designer Bronze button to the center.|
|8. Using a heat tool, heat the edges of the tulle until they curl and are slightly melted. If you see in the two photos the flower shrinks quite a bit once heated. Be careful when picking up the flower as the button gets HOT!!!!|
|9. Attach the flower to the belly band where the edges of the card stock meet.|
|10. The finished product. I added a gift tag stamped with Early Espresso and the stamp is from the set Tags til Christmas.|
I hope you can find the time to create one of these cute holders for the holidays.
Have a great weekend!
