Need gift card holders?
I didn't much care for the holders that came with some gift cards I bought, so made my own. I used my contribution to Digital Designer's Den Vintage Winter Holiday mega kit. Two cards holders will print to one 8.5: x 11" sheet of cardstock. Fold all tabs towards rectangular center and crease well. To assemble, fold bottom tab up and glue side tabs to it (or tape). When you fold top tab down you will notice there is a strip about 1/3" wide that is open; dont worry about this. Using scrap cardstock, cut 2 rectangles of 3.5" x 2.25"; these will become you message cards. Slip this blank card into the envelope you've created and and fold down the top tab to see where the blank space falls on the message card. I used this as a guide to lightly write in the recipient's name so it will show through when you glue top flap down. Remove message card and write your message. Tuck gift card into enelope and top with your message card. Glue top[ flap down. Now you have a pretty gift card holder that has a design on top side and on back shows who it is for. Hope you enjoy these.
