Twin SUPER DUPER Gift Card Holders

Hi, everyone! Hope it's been a good Memorial Day weekend.

Before sharing my card, I'd like to send thoughts, prayers, and gratitude to those who commemorate this weekend with heavy hearts.

SUPER DUPER Gift Card Holders

Today's project has a bit of a patriotic feel to it. These gift card holders are going to twin boys who are donating some of the books they've outgrown to a local school district's summer meal program. They're going to find a handwritten thank you and a couple of DQ bucks when they open them up.  :)

Distress Ink core tunbled glass and mustard seed core; Stampin' Up! cherry cobbler; Recollections black cardstock
Recollections white cardstock, inked in DI mustard seed with Ranger blending tool
Mama Elephant tiny heroes images, stamped in StazOn jet black
Mama Elephant tiny heroes sentiment and tiny stars, heat embossed with Versamark and SU white powder
punches: ??? corner rounder (for tiny stars); SU small star; SU bitty banner
SU twine; adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen
I'm actually a little embarrassed to post these after seeing the gift card holders that Laura Bassen just posted. LOL  But, I think the little guys will like them, and that's really all that counts.

I went with a basic tri-fold design. The twine and sentiment slide off for easy opening and closing. And, since these are going to twin boys, I kept the design the same -- simply switching the blue and red portions.

I'm going to classify these as non-cards and link them up at the Shopping Our Stash Challenge. (Hope that's okay with the SOS team.) I'm also sharing them over at Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes.

Parting Thoughts

One last reminder that our Words 2 Craft By challenge runs through this Thursday. I really am surprised that we only have a few cards/projects in the gallery. We'd love for you to join our challenge and take a chance at winning that MFT gift certificate.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

  4. OHHHHHH! These cards are perfect for those twin boys! What a great way to encourage kids to donate and help others! I don't think you have to be embarrassed at all with your gift card holders--- these are AMAZING (and they were full of DQ bucks! I bet Laura's didn't have that in her's!!! 😜)!
