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.
