Gift card holder

Marianne here today to show you how to make a gift card holder. I have wanted to make some of these for a while for my craft fair stall and this year determined to work out the measurements and make some.

You will need
Strong blue A4 card
White card
Christmas paper
Velcro dots
Scalloped circle die
Copics or Promarkers
Stickles or white glitter
Small snowflake

1 Cut a strip of blue card 10cm x 29.7cm and a piece 10cm x 6cm.

2 Score and fold the long piece of card at 10.5cm and 21cm.
3 Cut the paper as follows:
3 pieces 9cm x 9.5cm
2 pieces 9cm x  7.7cm
1 piece 9cm  x  5cm

4 Attach the papers to white card leaving a 2mm border of card. 

5 On one side of the blue card attach 2 of the largest pieces of paper to the 2 largest rectangles. Attach one of the 9cm x 7.7cm to the smaller rectangle.

6 Attach the smallest piece of paper to the small piece of card. Tape around three sides and attach to the bottom of the middle section.
7 Die cut a scalloped circle from white card and attach to the bottom section of the card. Write To and From on the circle.

The inside will then look like this.

8 Fold the holder and attach the remaining pieces of paper to the front 2 pieces. Attach a velcro dot to hold it together.

9 Colour the snowmen village stamp. Layer onto blue card and attach to the front of the holder. Add glitter and a small snowflake.

A much nicer way to present somebody with a gift card and it can be adapted for any occasion.
