WOYWW .... I have a little pocket gift card holder


Morning WOYWers all,

As you can see the little pocket gift card holder I've been working on
has a finished front - still a little work on the inside to go ....
think I will add another pocket to hold the actual gift card ... and
will also have to tackle a wee box as well as it won't fit in an envie!!

Of course I think that will be a doddle with the Martha Scoreboard - to
answer the questions last week - the thing I love about it is that there
are score lines every 1/8 of an inch, unlike my Score-pal that had them
every inch (and a few random ones in between). I did consider a Hougie,
but that only had every inch or every centimetre if you flipped it over
- as every girl knows size means everything and the 1/8" make all the
difference!!

The more eagle-eyed of you will also notice a small purple thingy sitting just near the card - that's my new Kiwk Thread - and it's a wonderful little tool I am testing it at the moment, but will let you all know what I think in a day or so.

Busy, busy day at the Galaxy today (am expecting more of the TOO-Clearly film in to fulfill the orders that are waiting ..... not sure if we've
ever had anything sell out so fast).

If you wonder what I'm on about, hop over to Fair Queen Julia's and see
what all the WOYWers are up to.

Happy crafting.

Kay

Despite being a metric British gal and starting with a hougie board I did switch very quickly to the Martha Stewart and haven't looked back - I think as you say it is the closeness of the lines that makes it so useful!

Fab gift card holder Kay, I love the lace you’ve used on it.
I didn’t know there were score boards out there that had such small measurements on. I myself have a Hougie Board and have to say I love it. The boxes are so easy to make on it because it’s all to do with the size of the card you start with rather than where you score the lines. By cutting the card for the lid a fraction larger, you still score at say 1.5cm. and it will fit the base perfectly.

Happy Crafting!

Hi Kay - thanks for stopping by!

Methinks I need to check out the Martha Scoreboard - thanks for the heads up!The pocket gift thingy looks fab too....

Shoshi said...

That is really pretty! I love the swirls. I've got a ScorePal (inches) which I find works fine, but I do like the MS board and may get one one day! Sorry to hear the dog ate the mould! Our kitties are banned form my ARTHaven because Beatrice chews stuff and also pulls things out - she's so nosy and destructive!! Thanks for your comment on my blog. Happy belated WOYWW. Shoshi #61

For being number 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry I'm late, but, after a computer crash I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your pocket fgit holder. It is awesome.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That should read "GIFT." I'm a duf trying to type faster than my brain allows.
