Hi, everyone. This is Charlotte C visiting again thanks to Sheila, and I want to share a really neat and quick gift card holder with you (tis the season, right?) Here’s what you’ll need:
1 envelope A7 size (to hold a 5 x 7 card)
3 pieces of solid card stock cut 3 ¼ “ x 5”
3 pieces of designer paper cut 3” x 4 ¾”
Approximately 18 inches of ribbon
Here’s the how-to:First fold the envelope in half.
Now open it up and cut away just the right side of the flap (where I put an X) and seal the left side closed. You now have a pocket on the right for your gift card and room for a sentiment and/or signature.
Now adhere the other two sets of card stock/designer paper to the front and back. All you need do is a little embellishment of your choice on the front and you’re done – except for the gift card itself, of course.
What I did find was that certain stores give you a gift card in a little envelope which doesn’t fit in the slots of regular cards made to hold just the plastic gift card. So when I saw Dawn Griffith had this in her archives, I knew I had to share it.
I love the fact it takes scraps to do this – and we all have scraps, I know! Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Fall.
