Popcorn Box Movie Gift Card Holder

Hello friends!  It is Monday and time for this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge.  My amazing Design Team sister, L.B, selected this Cricut Challenge - a Movie Theme.  There were so many possibilities with this challenge - scrapping movie themes, scrapping of movie nights, and so many others.  I decided to take a different route and I created a movie gift card holder.

The basic card came from the Crazy Cute Cards cartridge.  I made a few edits in Design Studio, which would be difficult to explain.  I used textured white cardstock for the white section of the card.  I wanted to give the popcorn additional texture.

The other two cartridges used to make this card are Movie Night and When I was a Kid.  From these two cartridges I cut the ticket on the front of the "box" and the Movie Night title inside the card.  

I finished this box with gold gemstones in the buttered popcorn.  I think this is the perfect amount of bling on this card. I really like how this gift card holder turned out.  Best of all, it will slide right down inside a Christmas stocking. 

Be sure to go by the Bitten By the Bug 2 Blog and check out the Movie Themed projects my wonderful Design Team.  They always rock the weekly challenges.

  1. I love how you made this into a gift card holder! What a cute idea. Love the bling too.

  2. I have been struggling with this popcorn card in Design Studio--unsuccessfully. You seem to be the only person on the web to have succeeded. I truly wish you had described your recipe foo success here!
