This is a super easy way to make a gift card holder, using just small pieces of card stock and DSP (if you choose to use it).
1. Cut a panel of card stock 4 1/2″ x 6″. If you plan to use DSP to add a little pop of color, cut it at 4 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. Adhere the DSP to the card stock with SNAIL. The DSP side will end up being on the outside of the card holder, so be sure you put the side you want to see “up”!
2. Score two lines along the long side of your panel. The first is at 1 1/4″ and the second is at 4 1/16″.
3. Using your Envelope Punch Board, you’re going to make two punches in the short side of the panel.
The first punch is at 1″ – line the edge of the panel up with the 1″ mark on the Punch Board.
For the second punch, turn the panel over so that the “inside” of the card is up. In this case, that puts the card stock side up. Line the left edge up with the 1″ mark and make the second punch.
4. Use some Tear & Stick tape and place two short pieces on the shortest flap (opposite the end you just punched) – as close to the edge as you can get. As you can see, I still have Sticky Tape! 🙂
5. Before you take the backing off the sticky tape, fold the flap over and gently burnish the fold line. Then you can go ahead and remove the backer and stick the flap down. You’ve just formed the pocket for your gift card. Told you it was too easy!
6. To close the holder, you’ll place your gift card in the pocket, and then tuck the center section (between the two punches) into the pocket. Easy peasy! You can decorate the other side of the Card Holder however you like, or just leave your pretty DSP to do its thing.
Here’s the holder I made with this Tutorial Card Holder, using the A Little Something stamp set and a couple of circles of card stock. You can see more info on this one here!
