This Handmade Gift Idea | Scrapbook Paper Craft is perfect for those leftover strips of designer paper. This hand sanitizer holder is super easy to create and even cuter to give!
I used the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper, which is thicker than traditional designer paper and provides a beautiful background. If you don’t have this designer paper I know you won’t be disappointed in purchasing it in my online store. Cardstock as the base for this handmade gift idea will work equally as well.
I’ve recreated this project from others I’ve seen to provide you with simplified cutting and scoring measurements. You’ll find those dimensions posted below along with a video.
I used the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (37 photopolymer pieces) for the flower image and greeting. This abundant stamp set includes images and text for just about any occasion you can think of. It also has a coordinating set of dies called Bouquet Bunch (21 pieces). Since these products were carried over from last year’s annual catalog, they are no longer offered as a bundle, but you can purchase them independently.
The Layering Ovals Framelits are one of my favorite die sets since both the scalloped and oval shapes are included. With 15 sizes you’ll be creating layers for all every kind of handmade gift idea.
During the video I’ll teach you two different closures of this handmade gift idea. The one pictured here uses micro thin magnetic snaps sold by Basic Gray which you can find HERE. The second uses ribbon as a belly band for the front cover to slip into.
If you don’t have the Layering Ovals Framelits to create the opening, I provide tips in today’s video on using other punches and dies. Pin the collage below to your Pinterest board for later reference. You can create this adorable holder for birthday gifts and shower favors. Add it to a box of travel size tissues and you’ve got a unique get well gift, too! Or…teacher gifts…so many people you could make these for!
