Greetings! Hope you're having a great week! Make sure to enter the prize drawing from my last post! Entries end tomorrow night! I'm so loving hearing all of your planning ideas!! Today I'm here to feature Throwback Thursday for Papertrey Ink! It's when we look back at an older stamp set or die and come up with some fresh and fab ideas! I LOVE doing Throwback Thursdays! I always end up using some supplies that have been on the shelf too long and always have a good time! Today we are featuring the Instant Photo Pull Out Dies! Be sure to CLICK over to the official PTI blog for even more ideas today!
My project for today is a gift card holder for a Starbucks card! The photo pull out dies are the perfect size for giving gift cards! I really love to give out coffee cards as thank you's or birthday, or just because gifts. I have a collection of Starbucks cards so I can always go in my stash and pull out the perfect one for the recipient. Today I chose this pretty card with a coffee shop scene on it. I matched the colors of papers and inks to the gift card so it looks nice all together.
I decorated the front of the gift card holder with coffee cups, hearts and pretty sentiments that all work well together (Supply list at the bottom of my post). This die set is two pieces. One piece folds together to make the 'holder' with the square cut out of it. The other piece slides perfectly inside of it. I lined up the gift card to show through the window. I attached the gift card to the paper with temporary adhesive so it's easy to remove and use.
Here is the part that slides out! I used pretty PTI ribbon, a little heart, and some staples from my Tiny Attacher to put on a pull tab. The colors all work back to the gift card.
PTI always thinks of the best details for everything! This is the back of the holder portion of the die - and it's finished with the sweetest scalloped edge. I glued the holder together using quick dry glue so it would hold up to the weight of the gift card inside. SO easy to make a bunch of these! Great teacher gifts, or co-worker gifts! Perfect for any occasion.
