Happy Friday Everyone!
Gift card holders are always handy to have. I think it really adds that personal touch to an otherwise non-personal present.
I ran across this pattern somewhere last year and I'm so sorry I can't remember where. I always like to give credit for a project whenever possible. I originally made Christmas themed versions of them with a lot of layers of designer series paper. I thought they came out very nice.
I recently decided to make some all occasion style ones to list in my Etsy store and decided to simplify them. I used single sided card stock from various paper stacks that had some nice heft to them.
When you open it up, there's still a nice place on the upper flap for someone to write a personal message to the recipient.
These are super fast to make this way without all the layering. As an added bonus, they fit perfectly in a regular greeting card envelope, so mailing them is a breeze.
Here's the scoop on making these and your freebie for the day!
Card stock: 7 3/4" X 5"
Score at 2 1/2" and 6" on the long side.
Secure side edges of flap with your choice of adhesive (I used red liner tape)
Designer Series Paper Layers:
Outside: 2 1/4" x 4 3/4"
Small Flap: 1 1/2" x 4 3/4"
To/From Panel: 2 1/4" x 4 3/4"
1'' x 8 1/2"
I then used a combination of various scallop and circle punches with a stamped design to jazz up the belly band.
Enjoy! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or email me!
