Gift Bag Card Holders

At about the same time that I was making my sister's Graduation Card, Becky Roberts introduced her Card Size Gift Bags. I immediately knew they would be prefect for the some-what odd shaped cards I was doing. Using some of the guidelines Becky posted on her blog - Inking Idaho - I created a .cut file using the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge. The card holders measure 4 3/8" x 5 1/2" x 1" roughly and fit an A2 or slightly bigger sized card.

To coordinate the Gift Bag Card Holder with the cards I was making, I used the same PP(patterned paper). Added a 7/8" White Stain Ribbon I found at CVS during the Christmas Season into the pre-slit cuts and tied a bow. Here is the complete Card and Gift Bag Card Holder for my sister.

I also made a Gift Bag Card Holder for my sister's boyfriend's card. Only on his, I added a popped-out 2010 to the front instead of the bow. I thought the bow added a girly touch to the bag, so I simply deleted the pre-slit lines from the on the .cut file.

Here is the complete card.
