My boys decided to get their teachers Gift Cards for Christmas this year! So, I decided to make up some Gift Card holders for them using the adorable Christmas Wishes collection from Bella Blvd.
I went with a pocket/envelope style that I have made before. (That always makes it quick and easy!!)
Cute, huh?!? I picked out coordinating ribbon and cardstock for the insert which holds the gift card and a picture of each of them that they wanted their teachers to have. :)
Each pocket envelope (once folded) is 4x5 inches. I cut a 12x5 inch strip of kraft cardstock and then scored it every 4 inches (2 times). I then cut each edge at a slant from one score mark to the edge. Here is a diagram for refrence:
Do the same as above with patterned paper (I cut my paper right under 5 inches to give the little border), and adhere along the edges to make your pocket.
I wrapped the pocket in twine 3 times and covered the knot with a sticker embellishment popped up with foam adhesive.
The insert is cut at 3 3/4 inches and scored and folded to the adjusted height needed/preferred for sticking out of the pocket.
I embellished the inserts with a classic "Merry Christmas" sentiment and tied off my ribbon. As stated above, inside the insert is the gift card and a photo.
Their teachers loved them and I hope you do, too!!
So, if you need a last minute gift, you can always do a gift card and make up a cute little holder!!! I made 3 of them and it took me less than 20 minutes!!
Thanks for stopping by!! :)
