Christmas Mini Sentiments!

I chose to utilize my JustRite Christmas Mini Sentiment set for today's gift card holder! A simple and easy one to make too! Details further down in the post! The holder itself is cut using a Spellbinder Grand Circle Nestabilities #7 Die. The belly band on the holder uses two of JustRite's Christmas Mini Sentiments. This set features 18 stamps with a variety of sentiments and fonts. This versatility makes this not just a Christmas Holiday set, but a year round set! On yesterday's post, HERE, I talked about the usage of many of these sentiments other than for the holidays! I LOVE versatility! The inside of the gift card holder also uses one of the mini sentiments! So appropriate for a gift card or money gift, no? Here is a look at the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Set, grand indeed! For my creation:
  • I cut my khaki paper using the largest circle, #7.
  • Next, I measured 1 3/4" in from each side atoutermost arc of the curve.
  • Next, I scored on the 1 3/4" markings on each circle side.
  • Before folding in the flaps, I cut out each corner along the scored lines, stopping where the scor lines meet. This created the four flaps.

The flaps show well here, all are the same in size, the photo does not depict that so well with the picture angle though. A simple glassine bag attached to the inside that accommodates a gift card makes this super easy! I paper clipped the sentiment to the glassine bag along with some Martha Stewart twine.

Along with JustRite's Christmas Sentiment set, JustRite is also featuring a cling set today, Merry and Bright! You do not want to miss this one, be sure to check out what the talented JR Designers have been up to!
