Beanie Cap Gift Card Holder
by Carolina Buchting
Create a gift card holder that looks like a beanie cap.
- One 5" circle out of solid card stock
- One 2-1/2" semi-circle out of patterned paper
- One 5-1/8" x 1-5/8" strip of solid card stock
- One 5-1/8" x 7/8" strip of patterned paper
- Paper Cutter
- Circle Scissors Plus, or any other tool that allows you to cut a 5” circle
- Edge Punch
- iTop Punch, or a circle punch and you can make the notches with scissors
- White Gel Pen
- One Brad
- One Eyelet
- Double Sided Tape, 1/4" and 1/2" width
- Additional card stock for pom-pom
Cut the 5" Circle in half so that you are left with two 2-1/2" semi-circles.
Adhere the 2-1/2" semi-circle patterned paper to one of the 2-1/2" solid card stock semi-circles and set it aside.
Use a border edge punch on one of the long sides of the 5-1/8" x 1-5/8" strip of solid card stock
and add some dashes using the white gel pen.
Add a strip of 1/2" double sided tape to the 5-1/8" x 7/8" strip of patterned paper and adhere it to the strip you just added the dashes to.
Turn it over, and add a strip of 1/4" double sided tape as close to the punched edge as possible.
Attach the non-decorated 2-1/2" semi-circle (the one without the patterned paper) to the strip.
Insert the decorated semi-circle in between the strip and the non-decorated semi-circle. Turn the project over so that you’re able to center the semi-circles.
Hint:The front semi-circle will be taller than he one in the back.
Holding the strip and semi-circles in your left hand, insert the Crop-a-Dile™ in between the semi-circles and punch a hole.
Do not punch a hole through the semi-circle in the back, so make sure you place the Crop-a-Diletrade;& correctly.
Insert an eyelet, set it, and add bow on top of the eyelet with double-sided tape. Set it aside to work on the pom-pom.
Punch a notched circle using the iTop™ punch, fold it in half and then in half again.
Through all those layers punch a hold using the Crop-a-Dile™. Insert a brad and set it aside.
Punch a hole in the middle of the front semi-circle and insert the brad and pom-pom. Open the front semi-circle of the beanie and insert your gift card. With that, you are done!
