Today I'll show you how to create a Quickie Large Gift Card Holder! This one is for those gift cards that come in a large cardboard backing--or for a Stampin'Up! Gift Certificate which is what you see below:
Notice that cute little tag tied to the bow...that's created with the punch in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. The punch is only available in this gorgeous Christmas tin; it comes with 6 stamps that fit the punch perfectly and with a Real Red and Call Me Clover Ink Spots. The tin is so beautiful that it will become the center of future Christmas traditions.
See the double backing on the tag? That's also achieved with the single punch that comes in the box---see the directions below to understand the secret.
This lovely tin with stamps and punch are only available until Jan 3rd...they are in the Holiday mini catalog.
I'll give you the directions below followed by the list of supplies. You can click on the Shop Now button or on one of the images below to be in my store where you can order the supplies that you need. (Note: the Acetate boxes will be back online for ordering by Thursday 11/29)

1. Cut designer paper 5 5/8 X 9 5/8, score on the long side at 1/2, 4 3/4, and 5 1/4. Fold on the score lines and slip inside an acetate box and press paper to box sides.
2. Cut approximately 20" Vanilla/gold edged ribbon. Secure on the backside of the box with a glue dot in the middle of the ribbon. Tie a bow in front of the box and secure with a glue dot.
3. Stamp verse (from stamps in punch box) in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock; punch out. Punch out the punch shape from Garden Green cardstock and from Gold Glimmer paper. Cut sideways in the middle of each and secure the pieces to the back of the label with glue dots--by moving the cut pieces slightly up and down from the label you will achieve the double background for your label.
4. Punch a hole in the top of the label with the 1/8" hold punch and thread 12" of Garden Green twine through; attach the label to the bow on the box. Add 2 red rhinestones (item # 146924) to the label.
Slip in your gift card or gift certificate and you have an awesome packaged gift ready to give!
