Giftcard-Paperbag with The Day Before Xmas Edwin Shakerbox

I have made a Giftcardholder in a paperbag
Some of the youths I know even prefer giftcards…
But - the cardholders that come with the cards are sooo poor! I have to make my own cardholders!
This is one of the ideas I´ve come up with - yes, it´s my own idea! I havent seen it anywhere 😊

It´s an ordinary brown paperbag ( 3 1/8 x 5 7/8), bought at Søstrene Grene.
I cut Kraft cardstock 3 inches wide and some 6 ½-ish long (the punched border decides the length), to make the cardholder to put inside the paperbag.
Then I tried not to go too wild in dies and decorations - oh, I  L O V E  dies! Each and all of them!
The beautiful image, Magnolias «The Day Before X-Mas Edwin», is put inside a shakerbox, before
I attached it to the paperbag.

Here´s the insidecard shown. I cut to halfcircleshaped slits in the DP to hold the giftcard:

The backsides. On the insidecard i placed a little christmasgreeting. On the back of the paperbag I made a simple «To - From»-note

Materials used:
DP: Maja Design
Ink: StazOn JetBlack, DistressInk WalnutStain, Versafine Onyx Black, Adirondack Earthtones Espresso
Punch: Martha Stewart Cherish (PATP)

  6. Så fint gavekort du har laget. Nydelig fargelegging av motivet. Tusen takk for at du deltar i Hjertebodens utfordring denne måneden.

  7. Thanks for these tips. One thing I also believe is the fact credit cards featuring a 0% monthly interest often lure consumers in with zero interest rate, instant approval and easy on the net balance transfers, but beware of the number one factor that will probably void your 0% easy street annual percentage rate and throw you out into the poor house rapidly.
