Holiday Chirps

I wanted something a little different for cash and gift cards.  I saw several Zipper You Tube videos.  I decided to make my own in Design Studio and cut with my Cameo.  I also used the adorable Christmas Birdie from Doodle Pantry.

Today, my first zipper is for money/gift card.  Tomorrow, I'll use a zipper for a sentiment. If you would like the Zipper Studio file, email me.  (Do NOT leave a request comment on my blog since it does not give me "your" email.)

A2..Step 1...any base you like and wording or pictures
(PS...the sentiment is green but looks black in picture)

Step @: money or gift card very lightly taped in center...needs to be between the perorated lines seen in next step and picture 

Step 3: use good strong glue to affix the top panel over the money/gift card

The white card is my prototype to show how you tear open to find the money/gift card

I also used Gina Marie Fancy Lace Rectangles and Stitched Scalloped Circle sets.


  1. WOW! Cely what a great make and so clever to make a file for yourself AND to share it too. I love the image and the card, the sentiment is so cute too.

  2. OMG no way! This is so awesome! I'm looking for the die but can't find it :( I LOVE your card!
