Quick easy fast Gift Card holders

Fun simple gift card holders for last minute gifts.  We did this one at Christmas in July and I liked it so much I made a bunch of these and then put them on my tree as decorations!

You can make a lot of these at once by taking an 8 ½ x 11 paper, cut to 8 ½ x 10 ½ and on the short side score at 2” and 6”, now trim to 3 ½ wide. 

Or cut 8 ½ x 3 ½ and on the short side score at 2” and 6

Fold up. Corner round the front flap (not essential but it looks nice). 

Adhere sides together with tear n tape

Decorate the front flap (first corner round it!) 3 ¼ x 1 ¾ and front pocket 3 ¼ x 2 1/4. I used Merry Patterns.

Belly band is 9 x ¾ - fold it around the holder (not too tight), then burnish your folds.

Secure the belly band in front.  Cover the join with a silver foil stitched shape.   Stamp the tree, cut it out by hand, add to silver circle with dimensions.

Happy crafting, happy holidays - MaryKate
