Fun Friday Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Welcome to another Fun Friday! It's the time of year for weddings and graduations so I thought a quick and simple gift card holder tutorial might be fun. Those of  you who have made cards or scrapped for awhile may already know how to do this but there are always new stampers who are looking for ways to expand their skills.


Both of these gift card holders are exactly the same size but by changing the colors and paper they look totally different.  Are you ready? You need only a few supplies to get started.

One half sheet of 80-110 lb. cardstock
Magnetic snaps OR 1/2 of a circle of sticky backed velcro
1/4" Scor-Tape or Red Tape
Decorative papers/embellishment of choice

I'm going to show you just the basics and let you decorate and embellish to your heart's content. :-)

Score your cardstock at 2" and again at 6". It doesn't matter which side you choose for the pocket or top. I chose the side scored at 6" which is the 2 1/2" side. Now decorate and embellish as desired.

Here's a little tip to ensure that your magnetic stamp or velcro is properly aligned. Place the two pieces of your magnet together. Remove the sticky backing on the top piece and place. Now remove the bottom sticky backing and press in place.
  

You can personalize these for baby gifts, showers, weddings, graduations, and birthdays! Have a Fun Friday!
