Every year, there are a handful of people that tell me they want gift cards for Christmas. I love that because it ensures they get something they’ll use.
The problem, for me, is that it’s too easy and I feel like I don’t put enough effort into it. These are people I love! I want to put some thought into their presents. So, I like to make my own gift card holders.
This year, there were quite a few people that wanted gift cards, so I got to work on those way more adorable envelopes.
I wasn’t feeling particularly festive though. Possibly because everything is red and green right now. I just wasn’t feeling it so, I used patterns typically not associated with the holidays. BUT if you’re still feeling festive, I have a link to some really cute Christmas scrapbook paper in the supply list.
If you want to make your own, grab the supplies and follow the steps below!

Step 1: Download the gift card template
Download the template from the supply list above. I’ve put two templates per page so you can print it directly onto your scrapbook paper. I promise it saves a lot of time.
Remember to put your scrapbook paper design side up into the printer so it will print the template (or the blank side).
Cut out the template.
If for some reason you can’t print directly to the scrapbook paper, you can print the template, cut it out, and trace it onto the scrapbook paper.
Step 2: score the folds and add the slits
Using your utility knife, lightly score the fold lines. Remember to do this on the side with the design. It will make the folded edges look cleaner.
Then, cut the slit lines for the gift card.
If you want, you can ad slits for the envelope flap. Otherwise, I like to put a festive To and From sticker over it the hold everything together.
Give them a try and let me know what you think! Leave your feedback in the comments.
