December Project of the Month – Last minute gift card holders

624BEFC9-E893-44F2-8FED-7700F8A1DE26So many people in my family have requested gift cards this year and I was running short of ways to gift wrap them so I created a few holders of my own.  It took some calculating but this is what I came up with:

Cut cardstock to 9 1/2 x 6 inches.

Score at 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1” along both sides on the 9 1/2 inch long sides.

Score at 3 3/4” and 4 1/4” from the bottom.

Score at 1 1/4” and 1 1/2” from the top for the flap.


Trim off excess on the sides.

Cut a semicircle.  I used a 1 3/8” punch but any will do.

Round the corners on the flap if desired. I used a 1/2” corner punch.


To embellish is used DSP in the following dimensions:

3 3/4 x 1 1/8”,    3 3/4 x 3 1/2”,   3 3/4 x 2 1/2”

I added snowflakes and rhinestones but of course you could use flowers or birthday decorations or whatever you need.


To finish I attached the side flaps with double sided tape.  Finally I added a Velcro closure, a ribbon and a tag.
