JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #5

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #5! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! This week, it’s the Stamp Simply design team! Remember, start your Wednesdays at 9am Central, beginning at the JustRite Inspiration blog! I decided to create gift card holders out of Toilet Paper tubes! Yuppers, that's right! I was browsing blogs for gift card ideas and came across several of these! I pressed the empty tube flat, then proceeded with my bone folder to make the tube as flat as I could get it. It will not lay totally flat, it's kinda like a pillow box. One end is held together using scor tape. All designer paper is from Basic Greys Oliver 6" x 6" pad found at THE STAMP SIMPLY STORE! This holder shows the tabbed insert with a tab created with my SU label punch. I used twill ribbon, also found at THE STAMP SIMPLY STORE, stapled onto each tab for easy removal and easy insert of the gift card.
A pic of the gift card insert. I simply folded up the bottom of the paper to create a pocket for the card. The sides are held with scor tape. Easy, so simple, and what Fun! We all have toliet paper tubes! For my stamping I used JustRite's Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions that can be purchased at THE STAMP SIMPLY STORE. LOVE the frames, I colored the mine on today's holders with Copic markers.
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is currently running a sale of 15% OFF on all Spellbinders products in stock until Monday, October 11. All Spellbinders products in stock can be seen on this page.

LOL - Who woulda thunk that an empty toilet roll could hide a gift card? Great idea! Hmm, time to go through my bathroom garbage and start recycling!
