Gift Card Holder

This gift card holder is easy to make and so cute.

First off you need a piece of cardstock paper that measures 10 x 4 1/4 scoring at the 3 and 7 1/4.

To make this gift holder stable enough to hold a gift card or money you will need to add 2 eyelets to the inside to hold the sides together.

Then you want to decorate the front. To make the front stay shut you will need some stretchy cord which I bought at Hobby Lobby. They have black and white. Take a piece of that about 7 inches. Enough to wrap around the card without it buckling the card. I did 2 eyelets again to make the cording secure on the card so it did not rip it out. I tied and knotted in the front and mounted the flower on top with pop dots.

This is what it looks like from the back with the cord.

Hope this gives you some great ideas for graduations, weddings and birthdays!
