Mini Paper Pumpkin Box Gift Card Holder - How To VIDEO

 The holidays are fast approaching as is the time for having your gift giving plans in place.  I usually have 6-10 people that I end up getting gift cards for but I always want to present the gift cards in something better than that little sleeve that comes with it.  Most of the time a hand stamped card is perfect and other times you want something just a little more substantial.  Today's tutorial and video give you just the thing to make a gift card a bit more of a 'wow' gift.

  Using a mini Paper Pumpkin box you can create this easy gift card holder!  You can find the mini Paper Pumpkin boxes in the annual catalog on page 137.  You get 10 boxes for $7.50 which I think is a bargain.

   All the credit for the inside of the box scoring measurements goes to Ruth's Stamping Spot.  When I decided to do a project like this I knew that someone much smarter than me had already figured out the scoring and I was right so I used Ruth's scoring measurement and expanded the project to include the belly band and other embellishments using the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite.


 Watch the video to see the gift card holder come together step by step.  I've listed the measurements throughout the video but see below for all the cutting and scoring measurements as well as a list of all the supplies used to make this project.

  Cardstock -

    Box Insert - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"

    Belly Band - 11" x 1 3/4" 

    Long Sides - 5 3/8" x 3/4"

    Plus various pieces for die cutting and stamping to decorate the box

  Designer Series Paper -

    Inside - 5 1/2" x 1 3/4"

    Box Top - 5 1/4" x 3 1/2"

    Short Sides - 3 1/2" x 3/4"


     12" inches

  Watching the video will help show how the scoring and small cut for the gift card are done but here are the measurements.  Use a gift card to pencil in a mark where you want the slit to be cut.

 Box Insert Scoring - score on the 8 1/2" side at  3 1/4" , 4 1/4" and 5 1/4" 

 Belly Band Scoring - score on the 11" side at 2 5/8", 3 3/4", 7 5/8" and 8 3/4"
