CAARDvarks Challenge

At the Caardvark blog the challenge is to make a money or giftcard holder.
So I searched around the internet and found this neat
cardholder on "It's a stamp thing" blog.
I think it is a wonderful card for a gift card.
I made one for Christmas and
one for Chanukkah.
What do you need to make this?
a piece of card 4"x 8" and score at 4""
this is the box of the present
and another piece of 3"x 4 1/4" and score at 1,5
this is the lid of the present.
For the inside you need a piece of cardstock
4"x 2 3/4" and a punch to make the slits for the card.
Of course you can decorate the card to your liking
with scrap paper.
Inside the card I used some velcro dots
as a closure for the card.
The bow of the card is made with 2 sizes of oval punches.
First you punch with the smallest oval and than with the larger one.
3 of each color make a great bow glued to the back of the card
and coverd with one of the little oval left over scraps.
Fot the Christmas giftcard holder I used a stamp by Just Rite and colored it with copic markers.
Tha Chanukkah gift card holder is made with paper and stamps from Club Scrap.

Have a creative day!
