Super Easy Gift Card Holders

Hello Feathers and Fingerprints!

Today I want to show you how to make a super easy gift card holder. They are cuter than anything you can buy in the stores ... in my humble opinion!

You start with a 4x6" piece of cardstock. I used paper from a scrapbook stack I had leftover from a different project:

Using a ruler, I marked the long side of the paper at 2" and 4.5". To make this most visible for a picture, I put some bright paper behind the project and made a dark pencil line.

Then I folded the paper on the lines! This would be easier and make a cleaner fold with a scoring tool, but I don't have one. Looks like I need to shop!

Next, I glued the edges of one of the 2" sections up to the middle section. I used tacky glue because I had it on hand. Any paper glue would work! I held it in place with some paper clips as it dried.

While the glue dried, I used some fun scissors to make the top edge fancy!

When the glue dried I tucked a gift card inside!

Then I folded down the top and tied it closed with some twine! Skinny ribbon would work too.

Ta-Da! Super easy! I'll never buy a gift card holder again!

Have a great day everybody!
