Gift Card Holders
(Click on any picture to see the details!)
In one of my earlier posts, I showed you a few gift card envelopes that I created by using recycled cardboard sleeves. Since I depleted my coffee sleeve inventory and needed a few more of these handy envies for June gifts, I looked around my little studio to find a suitable substitute.
When I found a stash of empty toilet paper rolls, the proverbial 'light bulb' clicked into the 'on' position. I measured them to see if my gift cards would fit, and . . . . voila . . . .they were perfect!
Instead of gessoing and painting the cardboard tubes, I used matte medium for glue and covered them with copies of some of my art journal background pages. I sewed three edges with metallic copper thread, added fibers, a few pretty paper beads that I received in a recent swap, and a Shrinky Dink charm made from my artwork.
Once again, I was pleased with the results and the price was more than perfect!
Wishing you a day filled with creative solutions!
