Princess Chloe Gift Card Holder

Do you own so many stamps, you forget what you have and when you remember you have it, you can't find it?  That's what happened to cute Puddle Jumpers Princess Chloe from Claudia & Co. which I bought over at DCRU.  Before I could really dive into all the Xmas crafts I had to make a little giftcard holder for a little girl's birthday and she's going to be celebrating it at Disneyland!  So I bought her a Disney Princess giftcard.

But it's the kind of GC that has that extra card on the top and I didn't want to just break it off cause on the back it has the To and From and Message info.  Plus it's so cute whole.  Anyway, I decided to alter the GC holder Cheryl posted about HERE.   The tutorial was from Dandelion Designs.  Because the GC is so long I used 3 pieces.  The first is piece of cardstock 4.5 x 12 inches.  Then score it in the middle at 6 inches.

The second piece was 5 x 4.25 inches and scored at a 1/4 inch on 3 sides.  Then I cut the little corners like above.

The 3rd piece was 3.75 x 9 inches and scored at 5 inches from the left.  This is where the GC would be attached.

I used tape on the back of the 3rd piece but just the top rectangle.

Taped all pieces together as shown above.  The GC is taped just below the score line.

So the GC slides in and out too.  I plan to write a little message on the bottom as well.

I like that this looks just like a regular card too from the front but opens to reveal the GC, unlike the Halloween Slider Cards I made HERE.

I forgot to finish my story from above.  I was trying to think if I had a little princess stamp to match the Disney Princess GC.  And for a while I was wondering if I had TGF's Princess Anya but I don't!  Then I realized I bought Princess Chloe but had to search in my stash for her.  I think Princess Chloe is so cute and perfect for this card.  I also need a bigger box for my stamps.  I'm running out of space.

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!

What a cute princess! You don't have Princess Anya, what a shocker! Just kidding. At least you remember what you have, I have to dig around looking at all my stamps again.
