It's a Wrap Blog Hop

Welcome to the second to last stop in It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. I first want to wish her a Happy 1 Year with her blog!!! She has created such wonderful projects this whole year.

You should have arrived here from, Robin, The Scrappin' Delta Diva, a fellow Texas Circle Sister. If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at different ways of giving/wrapping gifts. For some reason I have found it hard to buy gifts for people, so I just started giving gift cards. I use to buy those really expensive cards that hold the gift card, until I saw a few youtube videos and realized that I can make my own gift card holders. I found two different videos and made these gift card holders. Enjoy!

I first made a Pop Up Gift Card Holder and I found this great video that explained everything step by step. It took some trial and error, but I loved the end result.
I used the Tinker Bell & Friends cartridge and I cut Tinker Bell at 4 inches. I printed out the sentiment from my computer. I also used the D'vine Swirl embossing folder to emboss the wings.

This next holder is called a Gift Card Holder and Bow Package and this is the tutorial video that I saw. This holder was so fast and easy to make. 
Cartridges used:
From My Kitchen (tab cut at 2 ½ inches)
Sugar and Spice (scallop & buggy both cut at 2 inches)
Birthday Bash (bow cut at 8 inches)
