Technique Tuesday – Gift Card Holders

It is Tuesday and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!! This week it is these adorable Gift Card Holders!!! Now is the time to start making a few of these to decorate that Gift Card before giving it this Holiday Season (or all year long)!!!

Gift Card Holder,

These are SUPER simple and easy but adorable! I recently asked for tips on what you would like to see on my blog and someone asked me to post about making multiples and how long it takes for a project! So here it comes……

Supplies Needed: Solid sheet of cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Sticky Strip, and Velcro

Taking one sheet of 8-1/2” x 11”, cut at 3-1/2” along the 11” side (you can get 3 out of one sheet of cardstock)! Score your card at 2-1/2” from one end and 2” from the other end. Optional: Using your corner rounder punch, round the corners on the 2” end. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper – 3-1/4” x 1-3/4”, 3-1/4” x 2-1/4”, and 3-1/4” x 3-3/4”. This is a great chance to use some scrap pieces of your Designer Series Paper or the Paper Stacks that are found in the Holiday Mini Catalog, like this sample! Using the corner rounder punch, punch just the 2 corners on the 1-3/4” piece of Designer Series Paper. Fold your cardstock on the score lines to create your gift card holder, using sticky strip on the sides of 2-1/4” side of cardstock to adhere it together. Attach the Designer Series Paper to the top flap, bottom pocket, and back side. Attach a small piece of Velcro to the flap to hold it closed! Optional: Punch out a piece of cardstock and stamp a greeting or image on it. I didn’t actually time myself on this one but I would say you can create 3 (since that’s one sheet of cardstock) in about 5 minutes! I will have to actually time myself on the next batch! 🙂

Gift Card,

I hope you enjoy these and try it out! I have been making millions of these!

Happy Giftin’
