This month, I am back with the Creative Design team for a Christmas in July collab. We have some great projects that you can make with a holiday theme. I am going to be sharing three gift card holders that I designed with Christmas in mind.
For those of you who do not own a Cricut, I have an alternative project for you to make, so you won’t be left out. I created this little pinecone gift card pocket using a seed packet die that I have in my collection.
To give it a more masculine feel, I added a layered pinecone over the top with some pine sprigs. I topped it off with a blue bow and wooden button.
The lovely poinsettia pocket was created using some bold patterns from the Peppermint paper pack. I designed using some images in Cricut Design Space, then stamped a sentiment and added some gems.
I added some stitching to this designed and adorned the tag with some thread and fibers. In my video, I show you how to create the gift card holder and how to add some cuts on the tag to hold the gift card.
To keep the video shorter, I sped up a few of the instructions, but I share those in more detail in the CDT Creative Membership Group. As a member, you can watch those videos and learn new ways to use your Cricut machine.
WE ARE OPEN!
Each week receive detailed instruction, printable guides, and tips for cards, scrapbook pages, three-dimensional items, and Cricut projects. If this is something that you would like to be a part of, I would love to have you join.
The final tag was turned horizontally and decorated with some stamped images. I cut out a few circle shapes with my Cricut, then stamped the sentiment in blue on the shape.
The border was heat embossed to give it a little texture. I kept this one simple so that you could give it to just about anyone on your list.
The papers for this design also came from the Peppermint paper pack. I love how versatile all the patterns are.
In the collab video, I show you how to create that pocket and tag design using images you may already own and give you a few ideas for decorating those little gift tags.
All three of these were designed with Christmas in mind, but you can alter them to fit any occasion. Each one is unique to the recipient using those peppermint patterns, stamped images, and layered pieces and you can do the same with items you have in the holiday collections.
I hope that you join us in the CDT Creatives group. If you have any questions about this project or the supplies I used, feel free to leave me a comment below.
