I decided to make another Christmas gift card holder, because I needed some stand alone ones to include in Christmas gifts. I also had some mini die-cut trees left over from a previous project which I wanted to use as decoration.
For these gift card holders you can get 3 from one sheet of A4 cardstock. I have used Granny Apple Green cardstock together with the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Instructions for making the Christmas Gift Card Holder
First, cut a sheet of A4 cardstock in thirds vertically, so each piece is 7cm wide by 29.7cm. Next score at 8cm and 20cm along the long edge. On the end with the 8cm section, use a 2 3/8 circle punch to cut away a curve. On the other end (the 9.7cm section) emboss with the Christmas Tidings Embossing folder and angle the corners.
Next use some Tear and tape on the 8cm piece to form the pocket for the gift card holder. Make sure the tape is close up next to each edge so there is still room for the gift card holder inside the pocket.
For the belly band to keep the gift card holder closed, I have used a 3cm strip of the Merry, Bold & Bright DSP. Wrap it around the gift card holder, trim to size and adhere together the ends together at the back.
The final step is to decorate the belly band. I just added three water coloured mini trees *cut using the Merriest Trees Dies) that I had left over from another project. I just added some clear rhinestone gems to the trees and the sentiment from Merriest Trees stamp set.
I’m really please how these turned out and now I have three ready to go when I wrap my Christmas gifts.
