Gift card holder card

Front View
Inside View
This card it small about 3x 4 3/8 inches. The space in the middle of the card holds a gift card. It's a fun easy way to give a gift card to someone and have it look like you spent more than 2 minutes thinking about them. The green piece of paper you can see in the front view holds the card together. I did these simple flowers by using a small circle hole punch and a large circle hole punch. The petals are many little circles formed in a circle and I put the large circle punch over the top. I hand cut out the stems and the leaves.

Cut your card out. 4 1/2 inches x 11 inches You will also want to cut out a strip of paper (or you can use ribbon) to hold your finished product together. See the green strip in the top picture of this post. That piece is 1" x 7".
Score your paper at 3 ", 5 1/2" and 8"
Fold into an "M" shape
Use the gift card to trace the space needed to put the card in the middle of the "M"
Cut out the space you traced
Using a small circle punch or a semicircle like this one cut a space where the card can easily be pulled out

You will need to glue the inside of the "m" to create the pocket for the gift card. I used this double sided tape. Once it's glued it will look like this. One strip will do the trick. Then decorate the front however you want and you are done.
