Some of you may remember this Purse Gift Card Holder from the Christmas Gifts for members but I never did a tutorial. Here it is. You can make this adorable gift card holder and add a little humor to the gift card.
The paper for the base of this purse gift card holder needs to be fairly heavy (at least 100 lb. wt.) and needs to be two sided. It has a matching custom envelope because your purse should always match something.
Cutting the Purse Gift Card Holder
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a black cricut pen for the writing. Use any color, just make sure that it shows up on your paper. i used a font called Abigile that I got at for free at Dafont. It doesn’t fill in but looks cute that way. If you are interested in fonts that fill in, check out my fill in fonts here and check out the special deal to get them.
Otherwise this project is fairly easy to cut. You can move the parts around the mat to save paper. If you need to know how to do this, check out my video.
Assembling the Purse Gift Card Holder
To assemble the card, start by putting the pink semi circle on the front of the card at the top of the purse, below the handle. Then glue the yellow circle on top, forming the handle. Then glue the blue scalloped circle and finally the yellow circle. Put two of the blue flowers on the front then open the card.
Next place the blue overlay on the inside, making sure to glue it only at the left and right edges. Use foam tape so that the card will fit under it. Then glue the rest of the flowers on the inside of the card using liquid glue.
And your Purse Gift Card Holder is done and ready to mail!
