Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper Gift Card Holder
June 05, 2023
I want to thank my friend Jera Coleman for the design of the gift card holder I'm using today. Jera gave me a card using the Easter Bunny punch back in January at one of the NC Demo Quarterly meetings in Raleigh. I knew that I would make one. I took her holder apart and took all the measurements to copy her design. I made a gift card holder using the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper. By the way, this paper and select others are 15% off during the month of June. To see a brochure, go here.
Isn't this cute! I have a video for this post. Look for it if you need a little more clarification than I can write.
The base of the gift card holder is Pool Party card stock. It measures 4 1/4 x 9. Score at 1/2 down each long side. Turn and score at 4 1/4. Burnish the folds with your Bone Folder.
Looking at the card stock, one end is longer than the other. Cut off the 1/2 from each side on the long end. Angle the 1/2 inch piece on the shorter side at the top and bottom and on each side.
Fold in the sides and add adhesive to the top. Tear & Tape would work fine. I used the Multipurpose Glue. Use the glue sparingly. You don't want to glue the card shut! Fold the card to the long side and make sure all is straight. The glue does give you a little wiggle room.
Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3 1/8 x 4 1/8. I used scraps of the Zoo Crew designer paper to cover this card stock. There's really no set measurement for this. Cut a rectangle strip big enough to cover across the black paper. Angle one side. Glue the strips butted up to each other and covering over the edges. Reverse the sides for the wider ends. When done, turn over the black and trim the designer paper along the edges.
Run a piece of the Duo Ribbon Combo Pack (the Petal Pink) around the layer and tie into a bow. Glue to the front of the gift card holder.
Cut a circle from Basic Black card stock using the Stylish Shapes dies. Punch out the juggling bear with a 2 1/4 inch punch. I think this Punch might be retired.
The saying is from the Zany Zoo stamp set. Stamp in Versamark on Basic Black and then emboss in white from the Basics Emboss Powders. Cut apart and add to the front with pieces of a Foam Adhesive Sheet.
Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to 3 x 5 1/2. Score this at 1 along the short side. Burnish upward. Cut a strip of the black and white Zoo Crew paper 1/2 inch. This needs to fit around the front of the fold and along to the back. Piece in the back to match. Take a piece of the left over strip and cut to 2 1/2. Fold in half. Glue to the top putting part of the strip on top and part on the back. This strip should extend over to make a pull tab.
The gift card fits into the fold.
