Easy Gift Card Holder using Santa’s Workshop Suite


If you are looking for a super easy gift card holder this one is perfect! 


There are only three main pieces to the gift card holder… a 2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of card stock, a small piece of designer series paper & some ribbon! 


After assembled you pull on the ribbon to reveal the message card & gift card.




For the gift card holders in this post I used the Santa’s Workshop Suite which is perfect for this project!  The Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies cut out many of the images in the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper which I used to embellish the gift card holders.

The ways you can embellish your gift cards are endless with this suite of products!

1.  Punch each end of 2″ x 8-1/2″ cardstock with Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Fold in half at score line.

Tip: If you are making more than one gift card holder score 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock at 4-1/4″ before cutting 2″ strips. 

2.  Fold Designer Series Paper on score lines and apply adhesive to both ends on back side.  Line bottom edge of designer series paper to be about 1/4″ above fold of cardstock. Center Designer Paper and wrap around adhering to cardstock.



3. Slide ribbon into openings made with Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  Then insert message card & gift card between cardstock and slide all the way to fold of cardstock.


4. Tie ends of ribbon together with baker’s twine to secure.



5. Embellish gift cards as desired.  

Note: The white circles I used for embellishing are made using the Softly Falling Texture Embossing folder & Big Shot on Whisper White cardstock, then cut using 2″circle punch.
