My daughter’s best friend, Rachel, is having her birthday bash this weekend. Shannon spent a lot of time coming up with the perfect gift for her friend and has put together a beautiful basket of goodies. Part of the present is two gift cards and Shannon asked if I would create gift card holders for them. What a perfect opportunity to make the holder based on the technique video I had posted back on Feb 28, 2013.
Since then, I have discovered another holder that I wanted to try. So.. this post showcases both of my creations along with the video for the gift card holder envelope that I recently came across. And, incase you missed my previous post with the video for the gift card holder… you can find it HERE (will open in a new window.) I have updated that post to include the paper sizes and scoring marks for convenience.
Card Holder 1, My version:
Gift Card Holder Envelope
I really like this version too. It’s got a pretty little band to keep it closed and I found that it lent itself to a lot of creative options.
Paper sizes and score marks
- Paper size: Envelope: 5 1/4″ x 6″
- Paper size: Band: 1″ x 6″
- Score marks on envelope: on the 5 1/2″ side, score at 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ ; on 6″ side, score at 1 1/4″ and 3 3/4″
This is my version:
