About a month ago, I found this SUPER cute gift certificate holder that a very talented CTMH consultant had made using Veranda for a customer of hers. This came at a time that I was in need of a gift certificate for a friend of mine that was going to use it for a raffle.
The original gift certificate holder was a bit longer as she had used a gift certificate that she had made ( I am guessing). Well, CMTH already has one made up that I just had to download and print! Does not get much easier than that!! After just a little measuring, I made one to fit the one that CTMH created for us to use.
The dimensions for my version are 7 X 10 3/4. Score at 3.5, 4.5, 5.5, 9 and 9.5 . The original length of paper was 12 inches. This is what you will use if you don't want to scallop your front edge in a different color that the rest of the holder. Clear as mud? LOL I will explain a bit more below......
This is what the side of the holder will look like. The bottom should be folded on the score lines to resemble a W. The top of the Cherry Paper front will go directly under the flap and should meet at the top of it. I used a small magnet (Basic Grey, I think) to secure the flap to the front. The magnet went under my flower and under the paper on the front.
As you can see I have my Colonial White CS cut a bit shorter than the scalloped edge. This is because I wanted to use Chocolate for my scalloped edge and the only way I could find to accomplish this was to cut the Colonial White shorter than the Chocolate. This is the reason that my version is 10 3/4 in length and not 12 inches.
I also used CTMH's Soft Set Eyelet tool and eyelets to attach my chocolate ribbon handle. As you can see from the photo, I just knotted the ribbon and fed it through and knotted it again. Easy Peasy!! My gift card is attached with a bit of adhesive on all 4 corners.
