My first stamping project is this Christmas gift tag and matching gift card holder. I used an almost monochromatic palette. Interest is generated through the play of textures - paper, ink, metal and ribbon.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Randomly stamped on a piece of 2.5"x3" paper

Assemble into a holder with holes in the front and back for the handle
Step 8: Holder Handle
Use brads to secure a 0.5"x4" handle to the holder
