Easy to Make Gift Card Holder





I participated in a gift card holder swap in one of my cafemom groups. The holder had to be for anytime so I did not add a sentiment onto it. These were so easy to make!

I got the idea from Dawns Stamping Thoughts. Her blog has some really cool tutorials & is set to very groovy music. I improvised a bit on my holder since I did not have all of the supplies that Dawn had so feel free to make it work for you =)



I used the paper that was featured in my store's
Premiere Contest Kit. I also used my Scor-Pal Measuring & Scor-Board on this project. This is definitely one of the best things you can buy for yourself.

Here are the details on the holder. The paper for the holder is cut 4 1/4" x 11". Score that paper at 3", 5 1/2", and 8". The wrapper for the outside of the holder measures 1"x 7 1/2". My measurements are a little different than Dawn's, but it still works. I used my Marvy punch on the wrapper & left it blank so that the user could make it work for whatever occassion that he or she would like.


Thanks for visiting,
