Mothersday giftcard holder

This week's Joy's Life Design Team Challenge is to create a project with something that moves… Well, the ribbon unties to reveal a gift card inside in this project:)

I do not use ribbons much (though I have a ton of them) but now I see why we need a ribbon hole border punch:) I would like to share how I did this with a Mcgills Hand Punch

1. Start with a piece of 4-1/4" x 9-3/4" cardstock, long side at top, score at 1-1/4" and 4-1/4"; fold.

2. Mark every 1/2" starting from the middle on the short 1-1/4" flap (as shown)

Step 2

3. Punch ribbon holes. This is when I wish I had a border one. You can use a 1/8" hole punch and punch on both sides of the marks as well. As long as your ribbon will go through.

Step 3

4. Mark the middle two holes on the piece under and punch them out.

Step 4

5. We are using two pieces of ribbons. thread the first one like so and through the middle one on the outside flap as well. I do not have the color of ribbon so I colored some white ones with a R32 Copic (closest color I have for Zing Aqua Embossing powder.)

Step 5

6. Thread the second piece of ribbon from the middle two holes outwards as shown: (I just attached the tails on the back using some scotch tape)

Step 6

The rosette I used is the same one as seen here: I just love this die!

Happy Anniversary
