Gift Card Tutorial – La-La Land Crafts

Tutorial Thursday – Gift Card Holder

Hello crafty friends! It’s Tutorial Thursday and I’m sharing how I made these adorable Christmas Gift Card Boxes using the new suitcase die cut.

You will need 

Foam Tape
Glitter Glue
Glitter pen
Glossy Accents
Coloured/white cardstock
Nuvo Drops
Distress Oxide Ink

I started by stenciling on Neenah white cardstock the So Many Dots Stencil with Distress Oxide Ink in the colour festive berries.  I then ran it through my Gemini with the new suitcase die cut.  I cut an additional suitcase out of white card stock 

(You will need 2 suitcase cutouts to complete the box, One for the top, one for the bottom)

At opposite ends I taped down the stitched semi circle and ran through the die cutting machine to create the tabbed openings.

I then assembled both the upper and lower box by following the score lines and applying liquid glue to the corners.

I then used both colored and white cardstock and cut the side and top labels out then glued down to the box

After the box and side labels are attached down I die cut the corners and glued down to the top 4 sides.

 I did some additional die cutting using the Heart Wreath DiePinecone Bough DiePierced Scallop Circles Die and

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark black ink and heat embossed in clear.  Using a piece of foam tape I attached the sentiment to the box.
I then began the fun of layering and completing these cute gift boxes.

From bottom up I stacked the Pinecone Bough DiePierced Scallop Circle Dies, twine then finished with the Hippo Holiday clear stamps and on the left of the box the small Heart Wreath Die

I used a Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen to add some sparkle to the heart wreath die and the pierced scallop circle die and for the hippos hats I added some glitter glue, I finished off the boxes by adding some glossy accents to the candy cane and the ornament and a few drops of red Nuvo drops.

Copic Colours
Hippo’s – C5,3,1,0 colorless Blender R000
Hat/Candy Cane/Ornament – R89,46
Scarf – R21,20,000

Heres 2 cards I made using Felix the frog stamps and dies

Kept this card simple with a bright and clean look by doing a starry stencil background coloured with oxide inks and then offset the panel and adhered with foam tape.

For this card I used another stencil as well with oxide inks just to create a small border along the bottom. I created a banner for the sentiment and adhered with foam tape. I popped Felix up on foam tape and used some of the smaller stamps in this set to finish the background.

For my last two cards I used the Gertie and Garth Goat stamp and die set and combined them with the Funny farm stamp set
