Kraftin Kimmie weekly challenge- make a gift card holder...










































This week's challenge is to make a gift card holder for Kraftin Kimmie stamps. Click here to go to the challenge blog to read more of the deets and see what stamp is up for playing along this week. I used what I like to call the gift card 'classic'. This is the first style I learned and it is super easy. You take a piece of paper cut in a square or rectangle shape (cut it the same size as your card or close to it) and then cut it down the middle to make it into a triangle. You then put adhesive close to the edge of the paper on two sides of the triangle on the outside edges of the card leaving the inside adhesive free. This creates a pocket for you to slip a gift card or cash to help complete the card. I used Maxwell to decorate this card as it's for one of my nephews and Maxwell seems like such a cool dude.

I hope you get a chance to play along and have a great weekend!!
