Who doesn’t need a good gift card holder? After all, so often a gift card is the best option for a gift, especially if you are mailing it or not able to give a gift in person. Besides, who wants to mail a bulky package these days? I am not sure where I got the idea for this gift card holder originally but it is super simple.
First start with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. I chose Old Olive since I wanted to use the Cute Halloween 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. I scored it at 2 1/2″ and 5 1/2″. I folded it in half (valley fold) at 5 1/2″ and mountain fold at 2 1/2″. I put Tear and Tape along the edges of what would become the pocket for the gift card. Before adhering it, I punched a notch using the bottom of the cat on the Halloween punch. I then cut a piece of DSP 2 3/4″ x 4″ and adhered it to the front flap of the gift card holder. Actually before adhering it, I adhered a piece of the Black and White Gingham Ribbon using glue dots. I then took a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White and stamped a few images from the Cutest Halloween stamp set along the right 4″ side. I adhered it to the inside of the card. I stamped a sentiment from the Cutest Halloween stamp set on a 1/2″ strip and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels punch. I adhered it to a 3/4″ strip of DSP and trimmed the ends also with the Lovely Labels punch. I punched out a few images from the Cute Halloween DSP using the Halloween Punch and attached them to the front using dimensionals. I am not much for bling but I did attach a few from the Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins.
I took a look at the dots on the DSP and realized that it didn’t have to be Halloween. So, I put together another gift cold holder using the words from the “Love You More Than” dies. I pulled out one of the colors from the DSP – Highland Heather – and added a few bows out of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. This was perfect to send to my daughter and she will never know that I used Halloween Paper. (Unless she actually reads my blog post!)
