We are talking handmade DIY pretty packaging again today! This time Kim is showing us how to make your own super cute gift card holders! Gift cards are a great idea, especially when it comes to choosing gifts for women! Picking jewelry or clothing for friends or even my sister and mom can be tricky, but a gift card is a definite home run every single time because they can pick exactly what they want! And then when you take it to the next level and create a beautiful gift card holder, it really makes the gift feel more thoughtful and unique! Read on for the full tutorial to create this gorgeous gift card holder with patterned paper and watercolor flowers! I mean, how amazing are these florals that she die cut with the Silhouette and then painted!! They mix so beautifully with the polka dot patterned papers!! I’m in love!
It’s that time of year, the gift giving season! If you’re like me, there are plenty of birthdays, work events and holidays just within these few months at the end of the year. I give out a few handmade cards and gifts to special friends and family. They always know I’ll be making something pretty. I just have to, it’s in my blood! Lol!
I made a few gift card holders using different papers and a few simple elements. Using a bone folder I just eyeballed it and scored a few sheets of paper to make a simple envelope. You can make them any size you like. I even think 4 strips cut from one sheet would be the perfect size for gift cards and would help you to stretch your supplies further. You can add whatever you want to the front. I always have a stash of flowers, stickers and buttons just for projects like this.
These are perfect to add small handwritten notes inside, gift cards or a little cash! You could even make a set of them in a certain color scheme for a wedding or party! I think I will definitely be making lots of these for the holidays! Happy Crafting!
