Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how to make gift giving creative again with a gift card holder tutorial! I’m trying to give less stuff for the holidays and instead more ways to spend quality time together. Giving a gift card to a favorite restaurant is always the right size and provides a great opportunity to enjoy the company of friends.
I used the super cute Doodlebug Designs Christmas Magic collection for my cards, which come together in just a few simple steps. You’ll have a stack of DIY gift card holders just in time for the holiday season!
Gift Card Holder Construction
Use the Sizzix Slider Card Bigz L Die to cut festive patterned paper into pieces to create a gift card holder. Fold along the creased lines. Designer Note: If you don’t have this die on hand, make your own template from any gift card holder.
Apply adhesive around the edge of the back side of the patterned paper that will hold the gift card using the EZ Runner Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.
Carefully line up the inside piece with the outer piece of the gift card holder and press to seal.
Creative Christmas Tag Toppers
Creating dimensional Christmas tag toppers for each gift card holder is easy with the right adhesive! 3D Foam Circles are perfect for adhering buttons. Use HomeHobby by 3L Extreme Double-Sided Tape to add heavier acrylic embellishments to a tag. Micro Adhesive Dots are the perfect size to hold small bows and sequins.
Ultra Thin Adhesive Dots are great for securing bulkier lightweight items, like the plastic bow shown above. The thin transparent adhesive is not visible on the finished tag! Once the tags are finished, attach one to each gift card holder using Crafty Foam Tape.
Don’t forget to decorate the inside of the card. Thin 3D Foam Squares add dimension to die-cuts without too much bulk!
I hope your holiday season is full of joy! Thanks for stopping by today.
