This weekend I fell in love with these gift card holders that kspiv at SCS posted directions for!
We've been looking for a variety of holders to offer at our craft fair on December 11th and 12th, and these were exactly what we needed.
If you have any of the 6 x 6 DSP pads that are offered as level 1 hostess gifts, they are the perfect size. The gift card holder on the left is made out of Real Red and the one on the right is last year's in-color, Wild Wasabi.
To make the card holders, you score the paper at the 3 inch mark, turn it, and score again at the 4 inch mark.
The 2 inches at the bottom fold up to form a pocket on the inside for the gift cards. I made mine similiar to the card portfolio I posted awhile back and cut a small V at the fold to help the holder close easier. Sticky tape holds the outer edges closed, and I used my Crop-o-dile to punch holes for a ribbon tie.
The fronts of the holders were easy to decorate, and the students will have fun decorating them for the craft fair.
