Playing with Penguins

Got a chance to play with our new cling set, MC-35 (Holiday Gift Card) and came up with a couple of holiday ideas.  The first is, of course, a gift card holder!!!  Notice how I colored the gift card stamp to match the real gift card...you don't have to make it exact, just try to get the right colors in there!!!






It's a tri-fold card that fits into a regular A2 envelope.   Start with a 4-1/2" x 12" piece of card stock.  Score 2-1/2" from top for top fold and 4" from bottom for bottom fold.  Click here for pieces you'll need to cut the window.  Cut out the larger pattern piece and place it on the bottom section of the card (as shown,below) to cut out the window.


The smaller pattern piece is for the dotted frame (below).  Fold the bottom section of your card up and adhere a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of acetate over the window opening.  Glue or tape the frame over the acetate.  Position your gift card on the inside of the card so that it is visible through the window...fasten with double stick tape.  Tie a ribbon to hold the card closed.






Next up is a gift tag...it's always fun to add a little something extra to your package...for this tag I added a single serving pouch of coffee...along with these 2 penguin buddies:


Click here for the tag pattern. Simply cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines...apply double stick tape to the tabs, as shown below:


Stop by again soon!!!

Super CUTE! Great idea making the stamped giftcard look like the real one...you did an awesome job with that! And I just LOVE the coffee packet on the tag idea...mmmm...my favorite coffee! The take out coffee cup is a separate stamp...right?
