Tutorial - Gift Card Holder

I don't know about you, but I think gift cards are one of the best things available to gift buyers (and recipients!!). I love coming up with easy ways to dress up a gift card, and I thought I'd share one of those ways with you!

You'll need:
- 4"x12" strip of patterned paper
- 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" strip of cardstock (in a coordinating color)
- Word Window punch
- Stamped Image: I used Judy is Giving Gifts - which is so wonderful for these holders...Judy works well for so many gift giving situations!
- ribbon
- embellishments/pattern paper/cardstock
- gift card

To start, score the 4"x12" patterned paper at 4", 6", and 8". Fold so it looks like this:

Fold paper in half. Using your gift card as a guide, place marks on both sides of the card for where you should punch the opening.

Using the Word Window punch, create a slit for the gift card to slide through.

Fold the 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" cardstock in half. Adhere ribbon across the center.

Adhere patterned paper to cardstock atop the ribbon as shown. Place gift card in slot.

Decorate the front of the gift card holder with cardstock, patterned paper, and embellishments.

With these few simple steps, you'll have a fabulous gift card holder that will be enjoyed just as much (if not more) as the gift card!
