I really like the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  I have used it a few times this season since it came back as a Returning Favorite.  Today I have a little bit different fold to showcase it.  Because the paper is so pretty, I hate covering it up.  And it is difficult to find ways to Not cover it.

I paired the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper with the Gift Wrapped Bundle.  To not cover the DSP, I created a band to go around the card to hold it closed.  Did I mention it was a Gift Card Holder?  You know how much I love these!!

Here is the inside view

The gift card slot is just above my watermark.  I was not thinking that I did not have a card in there!

From this picture I think you can see that the card is basically divided into two equal parts.  The DSP is cut to line up perfectly.  And the seem is covered my the belly band.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I do appreciate your following me and my projects!  Reminder that the OnLine Extravaganza is TOMORROW!!!  There are very few exclusions, compared to the size of the Annual Catalog.  This is a great time to stock up on card stock, build your Ink collection, etc.

Click HERE for the post I did on Saturday showing all of the exclusions. 

Measurements and Directions for today’s project:

  • Card base of Garden Green is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • Very Vanilla is cut to 4 X 10 1/4, and scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
  • The 8 1/4 fold is for the gift card. Fold it to the inside and punch a thumb hole using a circle punch inserted halfway prior to securing the edges with Tear & Tape
  • DSP is one piece cut 3 3/4 X 5. On the 5″ side cut at the 2 1/2 mark for two equal pieces.
  • Adhere one piece to the front of the fold down (gift card) section, close it and then add the second piece and align them
  • The belly band is 1 1/2 X 11. Score at 2 5/8 and 7. Fold and burnish.
  • Wrap around the closed card and secure the overlap in front.
  • Add the stamped and punched bow and tag so they cover the overlap on the band
