As promised, I'm back with the tutorial on how to make the Coffee Cup gift card holder that I showed you earlier. For those of you who saw Lorri's video tutorial , I made a few small changes. The biggest one is that I made it a little shorter so that it would fit inside a standard size envelope.
I know most of you can view video tutorials, but I wanted to make a picture tutorial as well for those of you who can't view videos online or for those who want to have a document to refer back to.
- 10" x 4" piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock
- 3 1/4" x 5" piece of Early Espresso cardstock
- 4 1/4" x 1" piece of Whisper White cardstock
- 4 1/4" x 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock
- 4 1/4" x 2" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock
- Sticky Strip
- Paper Cutter
- Stamps, markers, ribbon, etc. for embellishments
Step 1 : Score the 10" x 4" piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock at 5". Fold it in half. If desired, run the cardstock through the Big Shot with an embossing folder or a texture plate for decoration.
Step 2: With the folded side going across the bottom, make a pencil mark at 1/2" in from both the left and right sides.
Step 3: Draw a line from the top right corner down to the bottom right pencil mark (1/2" in from the right side). Do the same thing on the left side.
It should look like this when you're finished.
Step 4: Using your paper cutter, cut along the pencil lines. Erase any pencil marks left on the cardstock.Step 5: Add two rows of sticky strip to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Make sure it's as close to the edge as possible.
Remove the backing off the sticky strip, fold the cardstock on the scored line, and adhere the front to the back.
Step 6: Repeat steps 2-4 on the Early Espresso cardstock. Mark in 1/2" from both the left and right sides, draw the lines from the corners to the pencil marks, and cut.
Step 7: Add a piece of sticky strip across the very top (the wider end) of the Early Espresso cardstock.
Step 8: Remove the backing off the sticky strip and adhere the Early Espresso cardstock to the 4 1/4" x 1" piece of Whisper White cardstock (I flipped the Early Espresso cardstock over for this picture). Be sure to center it left to right and make sure the top edges line up.
Step 9: Insert the Early Espresso cardstock into the Pear Pizzazz cup. The bottom of the Whisper White flap lifts up and should go over the front of the coffee cup. It's difficult to see in the photo, but I adhered the 4 1/4" x 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock across the 4 1/4" x 1" Whisper White piece to make it look more like a lid. I also corner rounded the top two edges of the lid.
Step 10: Run the 4 1/4" x 2" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock through the paper crimper, adhere it to the cup and trim to fit. Add a sentiment, ribbon, etc. Decorate as desired. Don't forget to add the gift card to the Early Espresso layer.
