Gift Card Holder - Tutorial

I love to create my own handmade gifts for my loved ones at Christmas time. However there are some you just don't know what to make for. That's when I give gift cards so that they can buy what they would like!
So, here is a beautiful gift card holder that I designed to look like a wallet.

I used my Big Shot to dry emboss a leather grain onto some white paper (8 1/2 x 4 1/2) so when it is folded it is almost square.

I then used two different colours of distress ink to give it a worn leather look.

I covered the whole paper with clear heat embossing powder and heated it to give a very shiny look to it.

I cut strips of paper of different heights for pockets to hold the gift cards.

I hand stitched the edges for a more authentic look.

Added a ribbon and 'hitch ball' closure.
