Just For You! Challenge #378 Week #1

 Welcome to our new challenge!

For the next two weeks we want to see what you make for someone else.

Something just for them.

We're calling it Just For You!

We want to see your Gift Card Holders and Gift Pockets, Gift Boxes and Bags, treat holders...anything that says this is Just For You!

This is perfect with graduations coming up. Or, create something for a birthday, wedding, retirement, housewarming, new baby or just because you care about someone.

Before we see what our Featured Designer Tasha has made "Just for You,"
let's see who won our Birds of a Feather challenge.

Now let's see what Tasha has created to help inspire you.
She's our Featured Artist for this challenge and she has an amazing, Multi-Pocket Gift Card Holder to help inspire you. 

 Hi everyone! 

My "Just For You!" Challenge project is a multi-pocket gift card holder featuring the new 5811-Gift Card Pocket Dies. This gift card holder is easy to make and perfect for any occasion!

Step 1: Cut a piece of card stock to 3" x 11" 

Step 2: Score at 8-1/2", 7-3/4", 4", and 3-1/4". 

Step 3: Use the pocket base die to cut several pockets. I used four (4) for my holder, but you can cut more pockets. This holder can easily hold six (6) with gift cards.

Step 3: After you assemble the pockets, use a small circle die or punch to cut the same size hole on the back side of the pocket as shown below. This makes it super easy to pull the pockets.

Step 4: After the holes are cut, use a trimmer to even out the pockets as shown below. 

Step 5: Use the shorter side of the pocket base die to cut a piece of pattern paper. This is a great way to use scraps and it will add a pretty pattern to the inside of the card holder.

Step 6: (Optional) I used the 5780 - FB Sitting Dog stamp set to add a little doggie to the front pocket. I love how cute the doggie looks peeking over the pocket!
Step 7: To attach the pockets to each other, use liquid adhesive and only apply glue to the center of the back of each pocket. You want to be able to pull out the pockets and gluing them completely down will not allow them to extend all the way. 

Step 8: After all the pockets are connected, cover the back of the last pocket with liquid glue and attach it to the inside of the holder.

Step 9: (Optional) I used the included "Thank You" die to add a greeting to the inside of the pocket holder.  This large script lettering looks awesome against the plaid paper.

Step 10:  To add more color to the front of the holder, I attached a piece of Art Impressions heart paper paper to the front panels. I also stamped "A Gift For You" on to a layered frame and added a teal enamel heart sticker. 

Step 11: To complete the project, attach a small Velcro dot to keep the holder closed. 

I hope you enjoyed today's project and will join in the "Just For You!" Challenge.

Have a wonderful day!
Fabulous job Tasha!
