hi there! i hope all of my papertrey ink stamping readers had a fun stamp-a-faire this weekend. it sounds like many of you really enjoyed a walk down memory lane during the 80s challenges. several of you have thanked me for all of my research, and to that, i have to repeat that it was more like memory fact checking than research, since my teen years and the 80s are one and the same! i'm popping in today by special request with a graphic to help with the gift card holder. my desk space on the video was tight, so it was hard to show my whole paper cutter and i kept forgetting to work at the top of it so more of the paper was on screen - my natural working habits kept taking over! so here is a graphic with directions to accompany the video, followed by the video itself, to have them in one place.
i tried to be as thorough as possible - i figured if i was creating it, i might as well do it right! if you have any questions or suggestions for the directions, please email me or leave a comment and i'll do my best to answer. my 13 year old was all over the note folding, especially these. she likes to give gift cards and wants me to make a bunch to have on hand for birthday parties. so, now i'll be making more! once you get the hang of making them, they're really fun and easy to personalize for a specific person or occasion. i'm thinking gift card notes for teachers would be cute - a note they'd love to intercept! thanks so much again for playing in the 80s with me...
it was, like, totally awesome!
