A Gift - Gift Card Holder!

The final Heart 2 Heart Challenge I am participating in for November is a "k"rafty one - literally, using Kraft cardstock on the project.  I needed to make some gift card holders - another project for December's Stamp Club - and thought the kraft paper would be very versatile.  This card holder could be used as a birthday project as well, just by changing the colors of the stamped images.
In addition to the kraft cardstock, I used White Daisy and Cranberry cardstock.  The stamped images are from the "Jolly Holiday" stamp set (C1654) and I used Cranberry, Willow and Lagoon inks.  I also used CTMH's Thumb-Notch punch (Z3131) for the notch to make it easier to pull the gift card out!

The gift card holder is simply a piece of 4-3/4" x 7-3/4" cardstock, scored at 1-3/4" and 4-3/4".  The punch is used on the small 1-3/4" section.  The sides of that section are taped at the edges.  The belly-band is a piece of 1-1/8" x 12" piece of cardstock, scored at 4-7/8" and 9-3/4".  It is just taped together and the packages applied to the front of it so it can slip over the gift card holder.  This will fit nicely inside of a standard A2 card, or you could just put it in its own envelop.

Check out the other krafty projects over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog.  And thanks for stopping by mine!

Love your "krafty" project! I need to make a few gift card holders and I may just have to scraplift your idea... Those bright ink colors on the belly band really stand out against the kraft paper. Thanks for sharing at Heart 2 Heart!
