Christmas Mini Size Stamp/Gift Card Holder

Holly Jolly Christmas Mini Stamp/Gift Card Holder
Designed by Liz Johnson
Independent Close to My Heart Consultant

Hello Crafty Friends!
I would like to share with you this fun little holder I created for my CTMH 25th Anniversary Party next month! I wanted to make something special to give to my customers for their support and business for 25 years! Each one will include a mini Christmas stamp! These cute little holders can hold an M size CTMH stamp or if you prefer, you can slide a gift card inside! 
Here, I made 3 different ones to give you additional inspiration! I used the Holly Jolly B&T paper, Candy Apple cardstock, Green Apple cardstock, holiday dots, gold and silver glitter gems, gold and silver glitter paper, and a couple of CTMH stamp sets. 
I am offering free instructions to all of my crafty friends for supporting me in my business and artwork for 25 years! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! <3 

Have fun creating these and sharing them with your friends and loved ones for the holidays! Enjoy! :)

Christmas Mini Size Stamp Holder Instructions:

1. Choose your cardstock color and cut your piece at 3 3/4" x 9".

2. Score at 2" and then 3 5/8". Fold your holder so it looks like this: (minus the B&T paper)

3. Cut the B&T paper flap at 3 1/2" x 1 3/4" and holder base at 3 1/2" x 3 1/8". Corner round the edges of your cardstock and B&T flaps before gluing them together.

4. Cut your cardstock band at 1" x 8". Cut your B&T band at 1/2" x 8". Glue the B&T band to your cardstock band. Score at 2 1/8" and then at 3 3/4".

5. Fold your band after scoring and glue together at the front. You won't see this when you add your circles. Cut out your circles. I used the large circle from the stitched circles thin cuts for the white circle, and then used the Shaker Window & Confetti thin cuts (solid circle center) for the glitter circle.

6. Stamp your white circle with a Christmas sentiment. Glue the glitter circle to your band first, then adhere the white circle with 3-D foam tape to the glitter circle to make it pop out. I stamped and cut out a little Santa's hat and added to the "B" on Believe with 3-D foam tape. 

7. Slide a Mini stamp or gift card inside and slide your band over your holder.
Add gems or colored dots to the bottom right corner to make it look even more festive!

Have fun with these! There are so many possibilities with these cute little holders! 

From my heart, <3
