DIY: Gift Card Holder

Prepping for holiday giving!
1. Print & cut out this template that I created.
It would be most durable on cardstock if you plan to make a few of these.
2. Place template on cute paper & cut out. Position your template to show off the best design elements.
3. Look at the photos below for reference. Flip the paper over so you are looking at the blank side or what will be the inside. Begin at point #1 and fold up to #2, keeping the print on the outside.
4. Fold both flaps in, glue main piece down to those flaps.
You're done! I've had this done for awhile but I get behind in editing sometimes. When I noticed a couple of bloggers posting their versions of giftcard holders, I knew I had to hurry it up!
Check out this patterned giftcard packet holder & this other version.

Do you like the embossing on the pink one? Love embossing. Used my Cuttlebug to make that happen. This is the embossing plate I used.

Do you think you could post a video tutorial on this?

Thanks for the heads up, anon! I'm looking into the size - it's showing up correctly on my end. Working on it!

What are the dimensions of the template! That would probably help me a little bit!

Katie (Lemon Jitters) December 14, 2011 at 9:32 PM  

I might have figured it out, anon. When I print mine, I have to select Scale to 100%. The automatic selection is Scale to Size, which scales it to the entire paper size. Maybe it's the same on your computer/printer?

Dimensions: 4 15/16in x 3.75 ...are thereabouts.

*or ... oops! how's that working?

Hi. I was having a problem with mine printing out too small. I read through your comments and I tried using the 100% size, but it was still printing out small. I played around with the percentage and I ended up printing it out at 130% and it came out the right size. I don't know if anyone else is having the TOO SMALL problem, but if that's the case, then I agree with you. Just play around with the printing size and a ruler and you'll get the right size. Thank you for this post. It's a life saver. My hubby doesn't carry a wallet, but he carries all his cards in one of these. My son is making him one with duck dynasty duck tape for his dads birthday. Love it. Thank you.
