Scissors Sunday - Hybrid Gift Card Holder

Hey everyone!!  This is my first post to Jennifer’s blog as I am a new member of her CT.  My name is Michelle (aka mdel) and I am so excited to share a hybrid project with you. 

Before the holidays I was busy getting teacher’s gifts ready.  I decided on giving gift cards because who doesn’t love a gift card, right?!  I wanted to find a cute way to present them to the teachers so I came up with this gift card holder.  This is an easy project so let’s get started…

I decided to use Jennifer’s new collab kit with Nikki Epperson: In The Air for my example. 

I started by cropping the paper to 3.75”w and 8”h.  Then I made a tag and cropped it to be just a bit smaller than the width of the paper.  I used a font called Pea Amy G which is available at   Here is how it came out of the printer…

I then cut out the paper and the tag with my favorite tool..

Do you have one of these?  Oh my goodness… it is the best invention, ever.  I use it constantly and not just for crafting projects.  It also scores paper which is what I did for this project to fold the paper in half.  Ok, enough about the trimmer.. LOL

Once I had everything cut out I used 3D foam to seal the pocket together.  I used the foam to give the gift card holder a little bit of room inside.   Then I moved on to the tag.  I mounted the tag on a piece of card stock and used the 3D foam again to lift it off of the paper pocket a bit.  By using the foam on the tag this gives you enough room to slide a ribbon through and it also helps to secure the ribbon so it is not sliding all over the place. 

I then cut a 24” piece of ribbon and laced it under the tag and around the paper pocket.  I used another piece of 3d foam to secure the ribbon to the back.  Pop your gift card inside and then tie off the ribbon to secure the card inside.  Add a flower and tada…you have a cute little gift card holder.

Plastic gift cards are in use since past many years, and now they have become very popular in almost every place like restaurants etc. So i think gift card holder are not just important for humans they are important for a card printing company or restaurants.
