Today is the start of my 12 weeks of Christmas Projects. This is free and every Saturday I will have a Christmas Project/Card for you. I will also include a Free video tutorial on the project so you can make them.
This first Christmas project is a Stocking Gift Card Holder made using our new Holiday Stocking Die#124098 $32.95 and the Big Shot. I’m sorry but I do not have the video done yet for this but I promise to get it posted this week!
Here are some instructions for you until I get the video made:
Basically you cut out 2 stockings, run one thru the big shot again using the Petals a Plenty textured Impressions folder.
Take the word window punch and approximately 1/2″ from the top of your stocking punch a word window move over slightly and punch again until you have an opening large enough to slip your gift card in.
Now you will want to attach your two stockings together.
Cut out the heel and toe using the Big Shot and a coordinating color and attach to your stocking.
Cut a coordinating piece of card stock 4″ X 4 1/4″; fold it in 1/2. Place the folded side just under the slightly straight edge of the stocking topper so that it doesn’t cut the top. Attach Sticky Strip to the inside of the stocking topper and attach to the backside of your stocking.
Punch a 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle, a 1 3/8″ Circle and I used the 1 1/4″ Circle to punch out the little holly berry image from the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP. Attach these pieces all together and attach 1/2 of the scallop circle to your stocking topper and on the bottom 1/2 add a velcro, close your top and you now have your stocking gift card holder.
Pretty sweet and easy isn’t it?
