STV Inspiration Challenge

This week's STV Inspiration Challenge is to create some home made wrapping paper or gift packaging.  Gina K has instructions for a great gift card holder. See here.  Measurements for the gift card are:

Card Base- 4.25" X 10", scored at 3", 4", 5" and 8"
Inside patterned papers:
4" x 2.75"- Cut 2
4" x .75"- Cut 2
4" x 1.75" Cut 1
Outside patterned papers:
4" x 2.75"- Cut 2
4" x 1.75" Cut 1

I used a Valentine design patterned paper from my stash and cut from the design to create this gift card according to the measurements listed above. Check out the video on STV for all the instructions.
I am showing the finished gift card holder with a ribbon and heart cutout from the paper that I used to keep card closed. The other photos show the opened gift card holder with and without a gift card.

This is a great gift card holder idea for any occasion.

Paper unkown source ...purchased at Joann's last year.
Used Pure White Gina K CS as base card and edged  patterned paper on the outside of the card with a  Pilot Silver Marker medium point.

Hope you might use this to make your own gift card holder!

Thanks for taking a look.
