Fancy Favor Gift Card Holder For Dad

Friday, June 8, 2012

Yesterday I showed you the Gifts for Dad class I held this past week using different dies and the Big Shot. Here was the whole ensemble:

I told you I would have a video today on how to create the Gift Card Holder using the Fancy Favor Die. Well time got away from me so I didn’t get time to make the video but I did take pictures and here is a step by step tutorial.

Step 1 Cut your card stock or DSP 6″ X 12″ and run it thru the Big Shot using the Fancy Favor Die.
Step 2 Cut the scallop edge off the top of the Fancy Favor die as shown here:

Step 3 Cut off all the pieces as shown with an X:

(To cut off the section on the left hand side line up the score line at the 1/2″ mark on your cutter on all sides)

Step 4 These are the remaining pieces that you will use to create your gift card holder. Apply sticky strip to the little tabs of the one piece as shown:

Step 5 Before attaching your back piece to the front piece(the piece with the sticky strip) you will attach the collar. The collar is cut out of DSP 1″ X 5 1/4″.

Step 6 Fold the collar piece in like this:

Step 7 Free hand cut a tie shape like this:

Step 8 Insert the tie into the collar and lay the tie and collar over the top of your gift card front and attach them all together using a paper piercer and brads as shown here:

Step 9 Remove all the Sticky strip and apply the back piece:

Step 10 Using the Two Tags Die cut out a coordinating larger tag and trim off 1/2″ off the bottom so your tag will fit inside your gift card holder.

Note: In the class we added the DSP stripe to the front of our gift card holder before we added the tie.
