Authentique gift card holder~


Hi everyone~I have two of my grands for a couple of days so I'm up early to make my blog post.  This is a gift card holder that I did for a bonus project at Craft Crossing {carries the full line of Authentique}.   It is done in Authentique pattern paper. The pumpkin is from a Tim Holtz die, stickers from Authentique, bakers twine and buttons.


First you will need two strips of double side paper cut into 3"X12".  Score at 4" and 8" on both strips of pattern paper.


You will need to attach them at the seem.  I used Tim Holtz tissue tape~you can reinforce with paper or double sided tape and then cover with tissue tape~that method works best.


So this is what it will look like. 


Glue your envelopes on the little pages~I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry (Authentique is one of the partnering Company's with Helmar}  To turn it into the little book~glue pages 2 and 3 together and pages 4 and 5 together~back to back. You should have 4 sections in your little book. I then wrapped bakers twine around it, decorated the front and it was ready to add the gift cards.  I labeled my little envelopes with~Pizza, Burgers, Tacos, Deli.



Hope you enjoyed this and I'll see you tomorrow for Try It Tuesday!!! see ya soon!
