[Guest] Cards for Gift Cards with Amy Yang

on December 05, 2016
Hello everyone!!! I’m so happy to be back guesting for Waffle Flower Crafts. During the holiday season I purchase a lot of gift cards to give to family members and for people I’d like to thank, like teachers. So I wanted to design projects that be can be mass produced to hold my gift cards. wfc-20161128-gift-card-amy-1 For these projects I used the Gift Bag Die, which I think is an awesome die to have around. It’s just so perfect to hold gift cards and other small gifts like jewelry. You can decorate it to fit any occasion and it looks great on top of cards. I also used Faye Stamp Set, Stocking Stamp Set, and the Willy and Friends Stamp Set. If you don’t want to include the monkeys, you can easily make these projects using the gift bag die set and the stocking stamp set. It’ll look just as nice…I’ll probably do that all the male recipients. I started this project by stamping and coloring the images using copic markers. Next, using colored papers, I used the gift bag die set to cut out the pieces I needed. I didn’t want the cards to have too much dimension (for mailing purposes) so I only used one side of the gift bag with one handle and taped it directly onto the front layer of both cards. Then, I stamped sentiment, Merry Christmas. Lastly, I used double sided tape to adhere the monkeys and their accessories to the front of the gift bags. wfc-20161128-gift-card-amy-2 wfc-20161128-gift-card-amy-3 For the next project I made the gift bag using two of the die cuts. I adhered the two pieces together along with the handles using double sided tape. Once again, I decorated the front of the gift bag using my colored images. Since there was no place to stamp or write I made a mini card, the size of the gift bag pocket. I taped the card directly onto the back of the gift bag. This allowed me to stamp a sentiment and write a little message. You can close the card using clear tape. wfc-20161128-gift-card-amy-4 wfc-20161128-gift-card-amy-5 I had so much fun working with these wonderful products. I hope I have inspired you in some way. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!! ~Amy Supplies: Gift Bag Die Faye Stamp Set Stocking Stamp Set Willy & Friends Stamp Set

DesignTeamHeadshots-KatieGehringHello crafty friends, Katie here with a new feature on the Waffle Flower Blog, Throwback Thursday also referred to as #TBT! In this series, I will be sharing ideas for combining Waffle Flower Craft’s newest stamps and dies with some previously released and well loved sets. For my first project, I wanted to combine the new Gift Bag Die with a couple of the Surface Tag Die add ons- the Santa Add On and the Scallop Add On. First, I die cut all the gift bag and the elements that I need from the Surface Tag Add On sets. To make Santa’s beard wide enough to fit across the front of the gift bag, I rounded one edge. I also die cut two of the Santa’s belts to accommodate the wider front of the gift bag. wfc-20160915-santa-gift-card-holder-katie-1 I assembled the gift bag, by adhering the handle to the back of the bag so as not to interfere with Santa’s beard. Next I added some details using the Scalloped border detail and the belt with gold buckle. I decided to adhere the gift bag to a kraft card base, but decided to dress it up a bit by pulling out another older stamp set, A Homemade Christmas. I stamped the small stars included in the stamp set onto the note card using Coffee Loves Milk dye ink. wfc-20160915-santa-gift-card-holder-katie-2 Once the background was stamped, I stamped a sentiment- also from A Homemade Christmas- with black ink, adhered the gift bag to the card with score-tape and slipped a gift card inside. There you have it, the Gift Bag die is all dressed up for the holidays! If you need to send gift cards to far away family and friends over the holidays, this card lays flat for easy mailing- nothing dimensional to get smashed in the mail. wfc-20160915-santa-gift-card-holder-katie-3 Well that’s all for me today, but I hope that you enjoyed this project combining new and old adding up to even more creative possibilities. If you have a suggestion for a Waffle Flower stamp set or a die that you would like to see featured in a upcoming Throwback Thursday just let me know by leaving me a comment below. Thanks for stopping by! Katie
