Crazy for Cupcakes Birthday Card

This is a money/gift card holder that I’ve done in the past but with an adorable ‘old fashioned soda shoppe’ type exterior!

I have seen the Candy Lane Designer Series Paper (#113980, $9.95) used as a window overhang like this and decided that it would be the perfect cover for a birthday money gift.

I had a lot of feedback about my post the other day (See: Rose Accordion Bookmark Card) and the dimensions for it.  I have updated that post to include more details, click here to view it again.

Crazy for Cupcakes Gift Card holder

This is one of the birthday sets that is 20% off this month for Stampin’ Up!’s birthday sale!  I let the DSP Bella Rose determine the color of the stamped images (I had a bunch of scraps left over from cards I was making).

Crazy for Cupcakes Gift Card Holder

Crazy for Cupcakes insideIt’s a *very* simple gift card holder to make and it took a VERY small amount of the designer series paper… in fact, I used the wide grosgrain to hide the fact that they don’t quite meet up under the ribbon!

The background (Chocolate Chip) is 4 x 4 1/2 inches and the So Saffron is 3 3/4 x 11 inches scored at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2 inches (folded up and punched with a half circle and held closed with mini silver brads).

The front of this gift holder is only 3 3/4 x 4 inches, so you can literally use scraps for it (as well as the punched elements again are from scraps).

This is easy enough for kids to make for their friends.  I let my kids make this type of thing on ‘rainy days’ and use them for parties they go to (and then they are made already!).
