Matchbook Slider GIFT CARD holder

Ok I have seen this one in the spring issue of CARD MAKER magazine and on STAMPING SCHOOL but this one will link to DAWN.

DAWN’S ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD GIFT CARD HOLDER

It is just another way to also use your ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD …and yep you need it…gotta have it… Michael’s JoAnn’s and Hobby lobby so use a coupon and its about 10$…so watch the Video and I’ll show you some other samples..

HINT: IF YOU ARE LIKE ME….lol you don’t have your computer on the same desk as your card making desk… so its a pain to run back and forth looking for measurements so BEFORE I watch the video I print out just the first  ( sometimes you need more ) pages of the directions… don’t print them all as you will end up with pages or comments ,,,Unnecessary…. when your print screen comes up it usually shows you the first page then under it ..it shows you how many pages with an arrow dart so you can scroll thru the pages… only print those with the measurements and or colors etc if you want it to look exactly like STAMPIN UP’S ( DAWN’S).  OK THAT’S YOUR TECHY LESSON FOR THE DAY. 

HINT # 2….. ON Dawn’s card she scores it at 7 ½ and also at 7 3/8  well she did that cause she thought that there need to be room for the gift cards…well actually you don’t need that so I only score at 7 ½  but it works either way so you decide.

DAWN'S MATCHBOOK GIFT CARD

DAWN’S MATCHBOOK GIFT CARD

I ONLY PRINTED PAGE 1 and 2… then watch the video and write next to piece of card stock she is using I write down where to score… this means I don’t have to go hunt up the video every time and of course I save it and usually a sample or at lest the blank cut papers in a protective sheet..

I am calling this a MATCH BOOK because that is what I think it looks like ..the match book cards and think there is even a pattern out there like this to make a post it note holder.  Here are some of the ones I did…

match book gift card 4

This was one that was in the SPRING ISSUE OF CARD MAKER magazine here is the magazine page and they only give you the measurements and scoring measurements the rest I figured out myself .

match book gift card 1Here is the one that I did using their measurements…

match book gift card 7

 

Now you are going to notice that I have a thing for these HEART FISH… made using three hearts … I just think they are really cute….this is a tri fold so this is the second fold open..

then this is the third open with one of my business cards instead of gift card at this time.

In addition I decided to try to modify this idea by using a regular vertical card

cut 4 ¼ x 11 and score it at 5 ½

then rather than have the fold inside as part of the card I made it an insert, here it is

match book gift card 2

cut a piece 4 ¼ x 4…score it at 1″, 2″ and 3″..fold it into a W shape and then you need to cut a piece out of the center fold so that you can slip the card inside.. I do have the STAMPIN UP phrase punch so I used it to punch out the middle.

In any case I think its a great way to make a gift card holder and I don’t know about you but I use them all the time… I will try to attach links to a couple of other gift card holders I have written about on the blog already…
