Gift Card Holder with a Twist!

Woot Woot!!! Today kicks off Scor-it Week on the 365 Cards blog! Pam will be doing a tut on a gift card holder, I thought I'd join in on the fun. I googled gift card holder and came across Heather Nichols' blog, pine is here {she's actually in my google reader}. She has a cute gift card holder that I took and stepped it up a notch and well, used it for something other than a gift card..lol..take a peek.
Take a 4.25 x 11.5 inch piece of cardstock and score it at 3 inches from each end...flip it over and score it in the middle at 5.5 inches....it will then become a "w". {Please note, I was going to have a full blown tut with me scoring and everything but that would have meant that I needed another set of hands and both of my kids were snoozing on Saturday morning when I put this puppy together!} I sewed the middle mountain together and sliced the crease off...you'll see a pic in a smidge.

Here is the end product:

Can you say Amy Butler'licious with a touch of Doodle Factory?

This is an interior shot...do you see the panel with the "Cupcakes Forever"? I sewed the middle mountain together and sliced off the fold...used a circle punch to finish it off. No gift card here...just some cupcake'licious stamps ala M's {that's my twist..lol!!} Yup, that there would be a Martha cupcake sticker that I've been hoarding...the sentiment is a wood block M's $ stamp.

I just think that Amy Butler papers are sooo fun, happy & girlie...

Well, there you go...I had a fun, fun, fun time putting this little gift card holder together...the mini Scor-it is most fabulous...especially for me since I don't have my own dedicated room for all my treasures...space is at a premimum. The scores are truly crisp and most magnificent. For you gals that are mobile self-contained units, the mini would be perfect for you.

Okay, my peeps...this week over at 365 Cards promises to be jam packed...don't forget that I'll be back tomorrow with another Scor-it tut.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and Easter...my kids aren't expecting it but they'll be getting an Easter basket from the old Easter Bunny with one of these cutie pies in it:
