Looking for a neat way to give a gift card this holiday season? Here is a quick and easy one..

I made two versions of the card using the SU Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Pack full of “warm” patterns. I used a hostess stamp set from the Annual Catalog called Time of Year . It is a versatile set with all occasion sentiments. As you can see I created a Christmas and a Birthday card.

Here are some directions:

First, you score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ on the 11″ side. You then fold back the 2 3/4 portion into the inside 5 1/2″ score fold (see photo below). On the edge that will fold back to the 5 1/2″ score, trim 1/8″ off so it fits flat unimpeded by the fold.

Now slide that trimmed edge the whole way inside the Classic Label Punch in the middle of the paper. After you punch the slot, you will have to slide the punch 1/8″ to the left and then right to widen the slot for the gift card holder. See photos below:

Adhere the flap down around the edges of the flap so the gift card has a pocket to slide into.

To hold the card closed just pop some dimensionals on the top right hand corner under something like the circle I have with the holly and berries or the birthday cake (off hand, I can’t remember where it came from) on it and slide the flap under it. The confetti comes from a new stamp coming out in the Ocassions Catalog.

Here is the Birthday version:

This is one of the cutest ways I have seen to make a quick and easy gift card holder…I bet you can’t resist making one now…have fun and share it with me if you make one!
