PPP Blog Hop Beary Comforting

Good evening friends! Thanks tons for stopping by! It's time for a Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  Y'all know I just LOVE Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, and this hop is FULL of em for you. 

Pshew! This month has been an absolute MAD HOUSE with regard to shipping.  Between Covid and Christmas, I just got my kit yesterday! Wowza!  That's ok though because it was totally worth the wait! This kit is sooooo adorable!!

I mean, look at the super cute critters on those cards! And, the sentiments are perfect for going into the new year too! 

The kit contains all the supplies to create 12 BEARY sweet cards for Celebrations, Thinking of You, and Get Well soon.  I'm loving the little cutie characters and those colors! Well done Stampin' Up! 

The alternative project I'm gonna share with you this evening is going with the celebration theme. It's a pop up gift card holder, and the little Koala couple just make it super cute!

I created the base of my project from altering one of the Rich Razzleberry card bases.  I cut it down to 4 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Then, following the score guide in the photo below: Score on the LONG SIDE at 2 1/4",    3 1/4", 4 1/4" and 7". 

You end up with something that looks like this. 

To create the slot for the gift card to sit, I used the Classic Label Punch. I folded the card base as shown in the following photo, lined the punch up with the right edge of the card base and halfway into the label shape and punched.  I repeated the process to the left edge of the card base (as you can see here).

Next, I added Tear & Tape adhesive all the way around the punched slot.  Peel the backing off and fold on the score lines. This is what makes the "pop up" mechanism for the card.  

Round the corners of the shorter flap and embellish as desired!  This is a really simple and fabulous gift card holder that can be modified to fit any theme and occasion. :-D 

I hope you enjoyed my gift card holder.  I love creating fun alternatives from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and especially love creating gift & treat holders! So this was right up my alley!
