The first gift card holder was created by Carmen DeBruce and features the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.  It's final dimensions are 4-1/4" square, so it will fit in a standard Medium Envelope.

Gift Card Décor—Carmen added a Merry Everything sentiment to a Note Tag Punch focal point.  The gift card holder is tied closed with Real Red Woven Satin Ribbon.

Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Merry Everything stamp set and Note Tag Punch together in the Merry Everything Bundle and save 15%!

The inside has a nice, big pocket for gift cards or money! 

Make Your Own Gift Card Holder—This is an easy-to–make gift card holder that conveniently starts with a half sheet of card stock. 

  • Cut the card stock to 4-1/4" x 11".
  • Score it at 2-1/2", 6-3/4" and 10". 
  • Fold back the 1" flap and slip the ribbon underneath before adhering it down with Sticky Strip.
  • Make a pocket with the adjacent panel by adhering the two outside edges with Sticky Strip.

Darla - gc holder 1 copy

Darla Eigenschink also created one of these gift card holders, and she decorated hers with the All Is Calm Designer Series Paper.

Gift Card Décor—She used the Get Your Santa On sentiments to create a tag on the Deco Label Collection Framelits shapes.  She accented the tag with a Festival of Tree image punched with the Tree Punch.  The tie closure is Lost Lagoon Silky Tafetta Ribbon. 

Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Festival of Trees stamp set and Tree Punch together in the Festival of Trees Bundle and save 15%!

In true Two Cool style, Darla made another version with a different pattern of All Is Calm DSP and a different Festival of Trees image.  This one is tied with a strand of 1/8" Silver Ribbon.
