Gift Card Holders for the Holidays

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

How to Cut and Fold Gift Card Holders From Patterned Paper

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.

How to Assemble a Gift Card Holder with Petite Permanent Dots

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.

Creative Christmas Tag Toppers

How to Embellish Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Circles and Adhesive Dots

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.

How to Add Dimension to Christmas Gift Tags Using Crafty Foam Tape

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.

How to Embellish the Inside of a Gift Card Holder with Die-Cuts and Thin 3D Foam Squares

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of the card. Thin 3D Foam Squares add dimension to die-cuts without too much bulk!
