Simple Gift Card Holder

This style of gift card holders was the first type I tried my hands at years ago. I remember I was getting ready for my first ever craft fair and I wanted to have a smattering of gift card holders available. I turned to Pinterest (my old friend) and did a search. This one popped up and it was love at first sight. It’s my go to – it’s quick and easy and you can make a lot in a little time (handy if you do craft fairs or have 18,000 teachers, bus drivers, co-workers to gift to this season.) I also like that you can keep it plain or embellish it to the cows come home.

To make this project, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Poppy Parade (3 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 2” and 6” on the long side), Sweetest Christmas DSP (3 ¼” x 1 ¾”, 3 ¼” x 2 ¼”), Pool Party (1” x 8 ½”), Basic White scraps
  • Inks: Poppy Parade and Shaded Sprue
  • Basic Tools: Snips, Trimmer, Adhesives (Glue, Glue Dots), Clear Blocks
  • Additional Tools/Supplies: Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Iridescent Trim
  • Stamps/Dies: Sweet Candy Canes Bundle (stamp set/dies)

To make this project, follow these steps:

  • Burnish score line well using a bone folder
  • Adhere DSP to front-facing flaps
  • Glue larger section down, using either Tear & Tape or glue – only apply on the outer edges so that once dry a gift card can fit it
  • Stamp candy canes and sentiment and cut out the images using the coordinating dies
  •  Wrap Pool Party belly band around the closed gift card holder and secure in the back using Tear & Tape or glue
  • Adhere candy canes to the front of holder (adhere to belly band)
  • Take a 16” length of Iridescent Trim and loop through holes on label and secure with a bow

Here’s a quick video of the process with some tips:
