The stamp set allows you to create a host of celebratory cards and small gifts including weddings, birthdays, graduations, and more. The dies build fun gift card holders, card sleeves, and 3D paper crafting projects.

This first card uses the largest of the dies to create a pocket or pull-out card. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post. I give step-by-step directions for making this DIY stationery project from my craft room in Mesa, Arizona.

You’ll need two sheets of matching card stock measuring 8 1/4 x 9 3/4. Follow the scoring and cutting directions below. You can also follow along with the video.

Trusty Tools Gift Card Holder

Welcome to the May Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Thanks so much for joining us. This month, we feature cards and projects with a masculine feel. Be sure to visit all of the participating stampers to gain a host of paper crafting inspiration. Remember: Father’s Day is next month!

Trusty Tools Gift Card Holder

Trusty Tools Gift Card Holder

For today’s project, I used the Trusty Tools stamp set and coordinating Trusty Tools Dies to create a gift card holder for a guy in your life. Just recently, I discovered a bag of empty, plastic chewing gum containers at the back of my craft room closet. These make the perfect receptacles for gift cards.

Here are a few measurements to help you get started:

  • Country Woods Designer Series Paper: 3 three pieces including 4 x 2, 4 x 3/4, and 4 x 2 1/2
  • Country Woods Designer Series Paper for the tag/sentiment measuring about 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
  • Tag border from Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set; sentiment from Trusty Tools stamped in Misty Moonlight, punched with Heartfelt Hexagon Punch
  • Tools from Trusty Tools Dies die cut in Silver Foil 
  • Bakers Twine Combo Pack

I think it’s just a super fun way to present a gift card to the special guy in your life.
