gift card holder

Every year I look around for new ways to package gift cards for the holidays.  Gift cards are frequently used by me for my nieces and nephews and I like wrapping them in more than just a plain envelope. 

When I saw the uber talented Becca Feeken’s gift card holder she did for Our Daily Bread Stamps I knew it would be my go to technique this year – and probably many more years!  The video of how she made this is HERE.

Here is my take…

The gift card holder is actually two pieces.  The pocket or “envelope” is one piece and the actual gift card holder is another.  This is the pocket with the gift card holder tucked inside.  I used paper from SEI Winter Song and edged the diagonal folds with thin satin ribbon.  The snowflake and red flower are both Martha Stewart punches.  You can’t tell from the photo but the snowflake is covered with pretty glitter.  The red brad is from My Minds Eye.   I wrapped some diy bakers twine around just for looks.

Here is the piece that contains the actual gift card.

The image is from Papertrey and was stamped on Cranes Lettra Paper in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and cut using a nestabilites die. The ribbon is seam binding (love this stuff!!)  I edged the label with memento blue ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
