Double slider gift card holders


With Christmas and lots of family birthday approaching, I have been thinking about cute gift card holders. I wanted to use the made by Elves collection by Craft Consortium.   






I made a double slider gift card holder following a tutorial I found (credit below) and it was really cute. I am always fascinated by the slider mechanism and how magical it looks when you pull open a tag. I thought this would intrigue the older grandchildren and, to be honest, the men in the family! (Don't tell them I put them in the same category as the grandchildren though!)








Prompted by fellow DT member Kate, I decided 
to add not only a sker element but to make it an  
edgeless one. 

I used  6 x6 papers from the fabulous new Midnight Flight 
Collection to show off  the smaller design and include the really pretty sequins from the collection in the shaker.

This was soo easy - just some acetate cut about 1/2" or 1 cm larger than the design paper. I wrapped this loosely around the paper and adhered it with red liner tape, popping in the sequins before closing the last side. Then continued as the previous gift card holder.



Both really gorgeous, if I say so nyself. I hope you give these a go - see the link to the tutorial below and why not try adding an edgeless shaker too.

Remember, it's never too early to prepare for Christms or upcoming birthdays.

Have fun
Lesley
