Gift Card Holder Using Your Stash and Giveaway

Gift Card Holder Using Your Stash and Giveaway is what we have for you today. I don’t know about you but I vowed I was going to be done early for the holidays. First of all, I would like to say I am super proud of myself! I am 75% done shopping and am THRILLED! Creating this easy to create gift card holder is a great way to create something handmade because you want to show your loved ones you care. It is super fast too!  I came up with this quick idea and thought I would share it for those of you that want to plan ahead of time. I have a CAS way to create something from the heart but doesn’t take hours and hours to do SOOOOO let’s get started!

For the Gift Card Holder Using Your Stash,

this is the first one I made as a sample. It took me about 30 seconds but this is because I did have the card stock pre cut. If you needed to cut the card stock, it would probably take about 3-4 minutes because it is pretty simple to cut a standard piece of paper in half.. If you know you are doing multiple ones, I would suggest you cut multiple ones so you have them on hand. It saves time!

Take your paper (Cut 4.25″ x 11″) and place it on your scoring board.

Score your paper at 5″ because you will need to fold this for your card to fold in half.

gift-card-holder-using-your-stash-and-giveaway-d

Score your paper at 10″ because you will need to fold this so that it holds your gift card.
