Envelope Liner Gift Card Tags

OK, who doesn't need another gift card holder idea? Not me! I'll take all I can get! I have seen gift card holders made with the envelope liner die, but only with the middle sized die. Well, while I was trying to make my own, I discovered that the smallest die works marvelously well to make a pocket that the gift card, or folded money, peeks out of! I used these on some gifts to nieces and nephews. I got them each a fluffy printed fleece throw blanket and then a little cash tucked into the gift tag hanging on their package. SO cute! They can even use them as ornaments on the tree later.

These came together very quickly. First I diecut a piece of solid card stock and a piece of DSP for each holder, starting with a 4½"x3¼" piece each. You can get 2 out of each sheet out of the DSP stacks! How awesome is that?!

Then I used the little hole dies from Chalk Talk to add the hole at the top of the solid color pieces. Next, I folded down the flap on the DSP pieces and creased well with the bone folder. The DSP flap was stitched down, then the DSP and card stock pieces were stitched together.

Lastly, I added a variety of embellishments with punches, Gold embossing, and paper piercing.

I used quite an array of supplies from my stash on this project. It is so amazing how much stuff we can accumulate. I am all for using all of your stuff :)
