Guest Post {Gift Card Holder}

Hi there all you awesome followers!  Today I am really excited to share this gift card holder with you.  This was submitted by Barb for the guest post in the “Happy New Year Giveaway.”
  • 1 sheet 8.5x11 cardstock
  • 1 sheet coordinating decorative paper
  • Paper cutter
  • Adhesive
  • 10-12 inches ribbon
  • “Cropodile” (or other hole punching tool)
  • Stamps & Ink
  1. Cut the cardstock into a strip that is 4.5 inches by 11 inches.
  2. Fold the cardstock at 2.75 inches and 5.5 inches (folding opposite directions).
  3. Cut the decorative paper into two pieces.  One measures 2.25 inches by 4 inches. The other measures 5 inches by 4 inches.
  4. Adhere the decorative paper to the cardstock.  The rectangles should both be placed on the same side of the paper, on the outside portions.
  5. Collapse the folds and punch a hole roughly 1 inch from the outside edges and 1 inch from the fold.
  6. Lace the ribbon through the holes and tie in a bow.
  7. Decorate.  Barb used a “Celebrate” stamp with coordinating ink.
  8. Slide the gift card into the fold between the ribbon-filled holes.
