Since gift cards have been the most requested item on wish lists for the past 7 years (according to Gift Card Exchange Day), I figured I’d make a tutorial on how to make your own envelope/holder. The scrapbook paper you can find to make these is way more exciting than the ones that come with your gift cards. And you can personalize them however you want, which is always a perk.
I would tell you to measure your gift card and make the above shape based on the dimensions, but then I would have to add a ruler to the materials list and I didn’t use a ruler. So, lay your gift card on the scrapbook paper and trace around it to create the shape above. Leave a little bit of extra space for folding. I used a water bottle to create the half circle.
If you don’t feel like making your own template you can always download one. There are a ton in the Google image search for “gift card envelope template”
Then, do you know where you could put the gift card? In this adorable DIY holiday card! Its a DIY holiday!
Happy crafting 🙂
