Eight Pocket Gift book!

Pocket card for web This is NOT a project for my "Chip Chip Hooray! Stamp Camp, but it COULD be a project at a June or July hostess party! This cute and EASY little 8-pocket card/booklet is just adorable and I promised some of my customers at a party earlier this month that I would put pictures and directions on my blog. I've been a bad, bad, girl and haven't gotten it on here until now, but I hope you all will forgive me as I've had a son graduate from college, a son graduate from high school, made a trip to Nashville, TN, to pick up my youngest daughter, Alisa, from Bible College, plus we are celebrating Maddie Kate, my oldest granddaughter's 7th birthday this month as well as our dear son-in-law Tony turned 30 this month! By September we will have THREE 30 year-olds in our family, Tony, our son-in-law Johnny, and our daughter, Jessica!

To make this book:

Start with a 12x12 sheet of Designer Series Paper. I used Afternoon Tea from the Occasions mini for this sample.

Score paper at 2", 6" and 10" across one side.

Turn paper 1/4' turn, score at 3", 6", 9".

Fold up 2" score lines and secure at ends of paper with SNAIL adhesive. Cut center 6" score line up 9 inches, leaving the final 3" scoreline uncut.

Accordian-fold along 3", 6", and 9" score lines. Fold uncut 3" scoreline. Secure bottom ends with SNAIL, then accordian-fold along previous folds to create book.

Punch holes through all layers with the Crop-a-dile, then tie ribbon through holes. Embellish as desired.

If these directions are clear as mud, email me at [email protected] or call me at 618-237-6281 and I will answer your questions or we can set a date for a party so I can show you how to make this project!

Gift card holder!

Gedc0126I have had several requests lately for gift certificates/gift cards, so I knew I wanted to make holders for them. I found this cool pattern to make this tri-fold gift-card holder and went to work! It's had to tell in this picture, but I stamped Sanded Background in Chocolate Chip in on the Chocolate Chip cardstock. I sponged Chocolate Chip ink on the edges of the Outlaw Double Sided Designer Series Paper . I also sponged ink on the edges of the Star Punch ed stars. I used black Vintage brads and Mini-glue dots tp accent. I finished this off with some 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon. I'm hoping the lady I made this for likes it!

Gedc0127 This is the inside of the other one I made for her. I'm not showing the outside yet, I need to keep something a secret, don't I? The pocket to hold the gift certificate was made using the Word Window punch and the 1/2 inch circle punch. This holder is stamped using the Hot to Dot wheel, which is shown in the index section of the catalog on page197. Since this is another birthday gift, I used another stamp from It's Your Birthday. I can't wait to make a Christmas gift card holder!
