Gift Card Holder

Filed under: Projects — November 3, 2010 @ 10:34 am

I got this idea for a gift card holder from splitcoaststampers.  I’m also using it as a thank you/business card holder for people that order online  from me this month.  When I get my Jolly Holiday DSP from the Contempo Christmas Bundle (20% off on my website!) we can make some Christmas gift card holders too.  And this will be a great swap idea for the SU Leadership Conference in January (I’m going this year!  So excited!)

Instructions for Slit Latch Card

I used the AutumnSpice DSP  because it is heavy weight.  You can also use cardstock, or attach lighter DSP to cardstock to make the holder more sturdy.

1. Cut 10″ by 2 3/4″, score at 5″

2. For holder, cut a 1 1/8 x 5 inch strip.  Attach on inside ONLY on left edge for now.

3. Make a pencil mark on the outside and inside at 1″ by 1 3/8″ (the center of the card, 1″ in from right edge).  Your slits will end at that mark.  Outside: cut from top corner to mark.  Inside:  cut from bottom corner to mark (you will cut off a bit of the holder). 

4.  Now you can adhere the rest of the holder – bottom and right edge only so there is room for your gift card.

5.  Add some ribbon – here is  PEARPIZZAZZ ribbon

6.  Sentiment on front is from Sincere Salutations and Thank you Kindly stamp sets with scallop oval punch.

Easy and Fun!  Let me know if you like this project.  Click on the blue and red links to see the featured products.

    Dear Kim,

    Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your website. Your cards are very nice!!! I always get inspired after looking at your pretty items.
    Thank you again for taking care of my holiday order and I did receive my new card this week in the mail. I’ll have to give you the number. Let me know when your next order goes in. I missed December’s order. I hope you had enough. I would be interested in the June card date, if know one wants it. Just let me know. Have a great day! Talk to you soon.
