Rustic Harvest Treat & Gift Card Holder
Today I decided to share with you a fun and tasty Gift Card option. I have been making these for a number of years, to sale at craft sales and for gifts. They are always so well received.
I don’t remember who I got the idea from as I wasn’t a demonstrator at that time and didn’t write it down. If you where to do a search on Pinterest you would find many people sharing this. The problem was you needed a 12”x12” piece of paper as they all wanted you to start with a 7-3/4” x 11-1/4” piece of cardstock.
Now I didn’t want to waste so much cardstock when making to sale these so I refigured the measurements so a piece of 8-1/2” x 11 Cardstock would work. It only took changing where we score the cardstock in two places. The directions were hard to write to make sense. I highly suggest you watch the video to make the card, you can even make it with me as you watch the video.
There is a lot of scoring for this project, therefore, I prefer to use the Scoreboard for the scoring as it’s more accurate since you have two solid sides to hold your Cardstock against. The Scoreboard doesn’t allow you to score at 8-5/16” so I do have you do that measurement on the Paper Trimmer right after cutting your paper. This is one of the changes made you the 11” Cardstock works instead of a larger piece of paper.
I hope you like the change I made and that you’ll make one of these. If you make a number of them you can find the Ferrero Rocher’s at Costco at a reasonable price.
Let’s Get Started
- Use your Paper Trimmer to cut your Cardstock to 7-3/4” x 11”. Turn the cardstock 1/4 turn and score on the 11” side at 8-5/16” (Do this before moving cardstock to Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score the rest of measurements).
- Move your Cardstock to the Scoreboard to score the 7-3/4” side at 1/2”, 1” down to the score line you made on the paper trimmer, 1-7/8”, 5-7/8” and 7-1/4”.
- Turn your Cardstock with the 11” side on top with the 8-5/16” score line over on the right side. Score at 1/2”, 1-7/8”, 3-1/4”, 4-5/8”, 6” (score down only to the second score line), 8-5/16” (done on paper trimmer), 10-5/8”. Turn the paper over and at the 6″ mark on the long side, score down to the second score line.
- Cut your Cardstock so it looks like the one in the picture below, also shown on the video. Fold your Cardstock on all the score lines and burnish with Bone Folder.
- Fold the Tab on the top side over and glue down. Fold the top tab over and put the glue on the outside of tab (you do not want to glue the tab closed as a gift card needs that extra space under it) and also apply glue on the top of the side tab, fold this section over on the score line to glue to section below it.
- Using either Framelet Die or a punch, Punch/Cut out the window. If you a punch fold the first bottom section over onto the second section. Center 1/2 of the punch opening and punch.
- Add the Designer Series to the two sections you just punch, the side tabs and the top front. Hint: I found it was easier to add the Designer Series Paper while the box was not yet assembled.
- Once the Designer Series Paper is in place and glue is dried, re-punched the opening on the wrong side of the opening, lining up the punch in the same location as the first punch.
- Fold the bottom tab over and apply glue to tab. Fold the bottom two sections up over the next two sections with the tab facing inward so it forms into a box.
- Close the tabs on one end of box, insert 3 Ferrero Rocker and close the tabs on that end of box.
- If using a Ribbon to get the gift card out, with a Hold Punch (1/8” size) punch a hole about 1/2” in and center it on the side of top that is still open. Insert ribbon thru both holes. Insert a gift card and push the ribbon down with the card. Tie a knot at the end and trim the ribbon.
- The other option is to use a 1” Circle Punch or a Circle Die to cut out a notch on the open end. Should you do this method you might want to punch/cut prior to adhering the Designer Series Paper and then re-punch after adhering DSP. Other shape punches can work too.
- Add your Greeting to top and maybe a Decoration of some type.
- And now you have a really tasty and beautiful Treat and Gift Card Holder to brighten someone’s day.
