The Perfect Gift

hearts a flutter gift card

Inspired by a gorgeous card I found on pinterest, I whipped up this gift card holder for a Stampin’ Up! Gift Card for a friend of mine who was looking for the perfect gift for a work colleague who loves Stampin’ Up!  Now I might be biased, but I can’t think of a better gift for a Stampin’ Up! addict if you ask me.

A few how tos:

  • Run a few pieces of your DSP through the honeycomb embossing folder and cut out to make perfect hexagons fast.
  • To reduce cut through, use no tabs on your multipurpose platform when using this embossing folder with DSP, Very Vanilla and Whisper White card stock.
  • Crumple your seam binding, make two loops and tie a piece of linen thread around the centre to make a four loop bow.
  • Punch out 2 of each scallop, crumple each and layer from largest scallops to smallest on top.  Attach with a mini brad.
