Accordion Fold Gift Card Holder

Did you get the Christmas Banners bundle? It reminds me of an older set that Stampin’ Up! had. I just love the look of banners – and the fact that you can switch out the sentiments in those banners is a major plus. Take a look at the bundle:

Banner, Berries and Sprigs – perfect for the season!

I paired this set with a really fun fold to continue my gift card holder theme. I used this set, the DSP from the Cottage Wreath collection (Gingham Cottage DSP), and an accordion fold for a quick card that packs a punch.

To make this project, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Garden Green (4 ¼” x 5 ½”, 4 ¼” x 9: scored at 3”, 6”); Gingham Cottage DSP (4” x 5 ¼”, 2 ¾” x 4”, 2” x 2 15/16”), Basic White ((2) – 2 ¾” x 4 and scrap)
  • Inks: Garden Green and Real Red
  • Basic Tools: Snips, Trimmer, Adhesives (Glue, Glue Dots), Clear Blocks
  • Additional Tools/Supplies: Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Iridescent Trim
  • Stamps/Dies: Christmas Banners Bundle

To make this project, follow these steps:

  • Burnish score lines of 4 ¼” x 9” piece of Garden Green – fold each score line in an opposite direction (to form an accordion-type fold)
  • Adhere the larger piece of DSP to the large Garden Green base
  • Stamp sentiment and berry sprigs on one piece of Basic White. Stamp sprigs at the top of the piece of Basic White. Stamp banner and sentiment on a scrap of Basic White and cut it out using the coordinating die
  • Adhere the full piece of DSP to the front of the accordion piece. Adhere the banner in the center of that using Dimensionals
  • On the next panel of the accordion piece, adhere the Basic White piece with the sprigs on top – adhere the smaller piece of DSP on the bottom of that *only use thin strips of adhesive along the sides and bottom of the DSP – this will be the gift card holder*
  • Adhere the last Basic White piece (sentiment and berries) on the last panel.
  • Adhere the accordion piece to the card base – you are all done

Here’s is a quick video to help show the steps:
