I’m beginning to think about upcoming holidays and end of school year needs. On my mind today was teacher appreciation. I’m assuming that schools everywhere have a day to a week where they shower their teachers with meals and gifts in appreciation of the job that they do with our children. To that end, I started thinking about gift card holders.
Last year, I designed a cute gift card holder using the Circle Card Thinlit.
I decided to freshen it with some current products and with the teacher appreciation theme in mind.
As mentioned above, I started with the Circle Card Thinlit. I made one holder in Melon Mambo and another in Bermuda Bay. I think they look fresh and fun in both colors.
Here’s a video for making the basic holder.
Cute and easy! The possibilities for it are endless — my favorite kind of possibilities 🙂
Here’s a closer look at one of today’s Cups and Kettle gift card holders.
Over my Bermuda Bay base, I added a piece of Whisper White seam binding as a closure for the gift card holder. Then, I layered on a piece of Have a Cuppa designer paper.
Next, I used the Cups and Kettle framelits to cut the cup and its scalloped detail. Though you can’t see it in the picture, I brushed on Clear Wink of Stella in between and just above and below the scallops. It created a nice slightly shimmery band. Plus, it hid my little oops!
Next, I used the cloud stamp from Sprinkles of Life. The stamp was inked in Smoky Slate and then stamped off before stamping onto the Whisper White. I used this for my layer of foam for my coffee.
“Thanks a” is also from Sprinkles of Life, I just didn’t use “bunch”. For “Latte”, I used the Alphabet Rotary stamp. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White in Basic Black ink.
On the inside, I’ve added a 2 1/2 circle of Whisper White for writing a message.
I need to make up a few of these for teachers and other people I need to thank in the near future.
Thanks for stopping by.
