To be honest, sometimes a gift card is the best gift you can give. Why not put your creative spin on it and make the gift card holder to house the gift card. You need the following tools and supplies to create this project:
Cut a piece of cardstock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ (you can make three gift card holders from one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock). Score cardstock on one end at 2″ and the other end at 2.5″. Use corner rounder to round the corners on the 2″ end. Cut three pieces of patterned paper at: 3.25″ x 1.75″, 3.25″ x 2.25″ and 3.25″ x 3.75″. Use the corner rounder to round the corners of one end of the smallest piece of paper. Run adhesive along the side edges of the 2.25″ end of the cardstock to make the pocket. Adhere the patterned paper to the outside of the gift card holder. Attach the Velcro dot to the flap for closure. Punch out the decorative emblem and attach to the pocket.
I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest and made it my own. Now, you have the option to present your gift card with flair. Happy paper crafting!
