Today I am featuring two newly released dies from the new Nesting Pinking line -- Pinking Rectangles and Pinking Circles.
I love giving gifts, but I don't always know what to give and gift cards can seem
a bit impersonal. So, what better way to give a gift than to dress up a gift card? Here's a tutorial for this quick and easy gift card holder.
|Using the second largest Nesting Pinking Rectangle die, die-cut TWO panels from felt. (Bean Tip: Use a good quality felt with a tight weave for ease of cutting.)|
|With a hole punch, punch holes along three sides of each panel. (Bean Tip: Punch one panel, then lay it over the other and punch again so the holes line up perfectly.)|
|With embroidery floss, stitch though the holes to form a pocket.|
After assembling the pocket, I die-cut two of the darling Nesting Pinking Circles from more felt and added a bright yellow button and a twine bow.
For my "hb2u" (Happy Birthday to You) title, I die-cut using the Studio Alphabet, but you could use any font that you like, as long as your die can cut felt. (Bean Tip: If your dies are backed with foam that results in your die not cutting through the felt, simply use a hobby blade along the edges and the die-cut can easily be separated.)
And there you have it! A cute, fun, and easy way to dress up a gift card for that special (and lucky!) someone.
