Let's face it--money cards are the go-to gift of choice for both givers and recipient, these days! Why not make a rather perfunctory gift something extra special, with a quick gift card holder? Dress it up with the Easiest Gift Card Holder Ever--so simple it can be done on your way out the door!
Ready to begin? Here's what you'll need:
- 4.25 x 11 inch cardstock base
- Simply Scored or other scoring tools
- Tear N Tape or other strong adhesive
- Duet Banner Punch or other large, gently curving circle/oval punch
- patterned paper, stamps and ink to decorate (B.Y.O.P "Buy Your Own Present", shown here)
Score the cardstock at 2 and 5.5 inches on the long side. Use your Duet Banner punch to notch out a little tab area directly in the middle of the short end with the 2-inch panel (below).
Use Tear & Tape or other strong adhesive just on the edges of that panel (so it won't interfere with the gift card sliding in and out). Fold down flat, creating a pocket on the inside of the front cover of the card.
Decorate the card front as desired. You'll want to cut a piece of patterned or stamped paper to 4 x 2 inches to adhere to the inside back of the card, as this will show even when the card is closed.
That's it! I told you it was the easiest gift card ever! Click here for more fun and fabulously FREE tutorials. I LOVE collecting the best of the best "real-life papercrafting" tips and tricks for you. I try to share ONLY projects that normal crafters can actually make without owning everything in the catalog! Thanks for sharing the love when you pin, click and comment.
Just curious...your first photo shows a much more circular punch out than your second one with the duet banner punch. Did you use two different punches? Just curious...they both look great!

What a clever card, and love that it uses the traditional A2 size cardstock, so no extra fiddly pieces left over! Thanks so much for sharing - I'm definitely going to try this one out!
