Birthdays birthdays birthdays! I am hosting the challenge this week over on the Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge and I chose birthdays as the theme. I am always in need of birthday cards/tags/gift card holders plus bday party pictures that I need to scrap. I ALSO threw Pezza's birthday party this past weekend - yes 6 months late. We couldn't make it happen in November so we promised a "half-birthday" party. She wanted a spa theme so that's what we did. I will put some pics at the end of this post.
For this challenge I chose to make a couple gift card holders to add to my stash. I usually try to make 2 at a time when I do this - 1 boy and 1 girl:
Making gift card holders is SO EASY with your Cricut! The cartridge Bags, Tags, Boxes and More has quite a selection of cuts that fold to form little pockets.
You can size them to fit a gift card and then decorate the fronts like a tag or card. A birthday Cricut cut, embossing, a few glittered skittles, and some pretty ribbons tied off with embroidery floss makes for a sweet little gift card holder.
Sizing whatever pocket cut you choose is easy in Design Space - gift cards measure 3.5" x 2.25" so determine what portion of the design has to be slightly larger than the gift card and drag until your cut is large enough.
I hope y'all join our challenge over at BBTB2 - head on over there and check out the other DT designs for some inspiration and then link up your project!
I was inspired by the following other challenges:
