Ghirardelli Gift Card

Ghirardelli Gift Card

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for popping by 🙂   Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Do you like those Ghirardelli chocolates as much as I do?  I was trying to think of a fun and creative way to give a few as gifts this holiday season and thought this little gift card box idea was a super cute holder for some of these delicious treats.

Products Used:

HCPC 3557 – Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3622 – O Little Town PreCut Set
HCD 712 – Bella Rose Die
HCD 734 – Sun Kissed Fleur Die
HCDP1 246 – Festive Christmas Paper Collection
Paper Shaping Tools & Piercing Mat
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Off-White Card Stock, Snowflakes View Die, Gold Embossing Powder, Glimmer Spray, Trim, Brads and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting 3 matchboxes out of off-white card stock.  For a tutorial on how to make a match box click here.  Next glue the 3 boxes together on the long sides.  Cut a piece of off-white card stock 7 1/4″ x 7 1/8″ and place on your scor board with the 7 1/8″ side on the top and then scor 3 1/8″ in from each side.  Glue your 3 match boxes to the inside of the card stock and them decorate as desired.  I used the lovely sentiment from O Little Town PreCut Set which I stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder as the focal point adding some fussy cut ornaments from the Festive Christmas Paper Collection.  Stamp, and die cut the Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set and assemble your poinsettia flower to give your gift card holder that extra special touch.  And last but not least… Have fun and try not to eat to many chocolates while you make this!  I did, lol!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
