CYS- Gift Holder

For our monthly Challenge Your Stash aka CYS post, Vicki challenged us to make a gift holder.

 I bought a few fun templates from the Silhouette store, then came across THIS fun idea from Jennifer McGuire's Blog. It is different from anything I have seen or tried, so had to give it a go!
I used a digi stamp from Sweet n Sassy-Cocoa : ) 

 How fun is that.....!   It is easy and quick to put together.  Find OLD as dirt DP...yep!  Use it on the bottom of the card. 
 Next, die cut an opening in the top of the card- I do not have the dies used in the above tutorial, so used one I did have.....

 Before you cut, make sure your die is where you want it. Place the edge of the cutting plate where you want the cut to end.....  there you go!

 Here is the fun peek a boo window after the die cut.  I scored the line at the base of the die cut.

Add some double sided tape to the back of the cardstock- make sure gift card has tape fairly close to keep it from flopping all over : ) 

 Although these pictures are mine, the idea came from the tutorial posted above : )

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the November gift Holders the group members posted for this challenge.


Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Shelly... this is so cute! And it doesn't look like it would be terribly difficult to make either. Thanks for giving details of the construction!
