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.
and here is a look at the inside where you can include a variety of these amazing chocolates
and finally what it will look like very soon after opening the card! LOL!
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
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.
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!
