Stampin UP craft fair make n take

I have been one busy bee this weekend trying to prepare for the upcoming Fall craft fair. I have lots of goodies prepared to sell and I also have prepared a special make n take for those that want to try out Stampin' UP's awesome products.

I will post pictures soon of all the items I will be selling. I do, however, want to show you this simple and quick gift card holder that we will be making at the craft fair.

 I got the idea of the holder from a Pinterest pin I found (and can't seem to find anymore) and turned it into a Thanksgiving gift card holder.

  • create the holder with the Two Tags Die. Attach your gift card and some ribbon for a simple and quick way to dress it up.
  • the sleeve is 4 1/4" x 6 1/8" scored along the length at 1 5/8" and 4 1/2"
  • create the pumpkin using the extra large oval punch: punch out 3 pieces and layer them as shown.
  • for the curly piece, cut a 1/8" strip of paper and wrap around a skewer 

Supplies Used:
  •  Cardstock: summer starfruit, pumpkin pie, early espresso, very vanilla, old olive
  • Punches: Boho blossoms, extra large oval
  • Inks: early espresso, pumpkin pie (for shading pumpkin pieces), old olive
  • Stamps: Punch potpourri (retired), falling leaves (retired)
  • Ribbon: summer starfruit satin 
  • two tags die & BigShot

I'm very excited about the event and hope that you can make your way to the Fall Craft Fair in Rowlett,TX to support your fellow Stampin' UP! demonstrator. Click the image below for more details.
