Cute gift set with Pretty Basic Pattern Papers

Hi All,

It's Priya here from Priya-n-Papers. Those who are following me from the beginning, knows very well how much I love dots and strips. When Papericious came out with the Pretty Basics paper pack I so wanted to use those to make some cute projects. Finally I got it in my DT package and had to use it in a pretty way! I have made a gift set which you can give to someone on her/his birthday.

In the gift set, I have made a shaker card, 3 bookmarks and one interactive gift card holder. To make it look like a set, I have used cute images from MFT Hog Heaven stamp set, colored these with Zig markers and fussy cut. Here is the complete.

Now let's have a look at each of these individually.

Shaker card :

For the shaker card, I used yellow dots and strips pattern paper and used Mama elephant die to create the border. I used white vellum and heat emboss my sentiment on it. For the shaker element, I added a mix of locally bought sequins and finished it with a cute piggy image.

Bookmarks :

One can never have enough bookmarks. It's easy to make and makes an awesome gift of it's own too. I couldn't stop myself to make just one. So I made 3 of these :D . I cut 3 strips of the size  1.75 inches x 6 inches from different colors to make the base and for the contrast, I die-cut 3 circles from matching strip pattern papers. Then I glued 3 piggy images and added matching twines to make the bookmark strings.

Gift Card Holder/Mini envelope:

This is my favorite of the lot. I worked out a mechanism to lock open the gift card holder. I used Avery Elle mini envelope die and light green dotted pattern paper from the same Pretty Basics paper pack to make the base.
For the lock open, the piggy can be rotated. To achieve this, I added a label sentiment and loosely glued it only to the ends. I curled the label a little so that it has some space for the fussy cut image to slide inside. I used a brad to stick the image to the patter paper. Don't use any adhesive. With the help of a brad, image can be rotated towards right or left to open the flap of the gift card holder. Here is how it opens.

I also tried to make a gif image, just to show the effect.
