"Who has time for that?!"
We Paper Artists hear it all the time, right?!
People think they just don't have time to make a card, a tag, a gift, or anything else that involves a little creativity and a whole lot of love. And to be quite honest, this time of year does seem busier than usual for every person on the planet (well... ok... not EVERY person... but at least those celebrating the holidays that fall on the latter days of the calendar year.)
Time, for me, is an issue during the holidays. I have learned to make the KISS acronym last as sweetly long as possible... just like a romantic kiss from White Christmas (or the dance scene Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen... swoon!) So I look to the quickest and easiest gift packaging and gift giving ideas when it comes to my creative time.
The EASIEST EVER GIFT CARD HOLDER
is my "go-to gift card holder." And I am excited to share it with you today for the Technique Lover's Challenge!
HERE is my EASIEST EVER GIFT CARD HOLDER.
I have another version on my Always Stampin' YouTube channel if you care to check it out for variety. It's very similar but allows me to change it up and still be able to create a TON of gift card holders for the season.
Let's look at the steps to making the
EASIEST EVER GIFT CARD HOLDERS...
1. Trim a piece of card stock measuring 8-1/2" x 11" to THREE PIECES measuring 2-3/4" x 11". (That's another thing I love about this fold... THREE gift card holders from just one sheet of card stock... yay!)
2. Score each piece every 3-1/2". This will allow a 1/2" tab at the end of each piece.
3. Add a Mini Glue Dot to each corner of the 1/2" tab and fold over. This creates a pocket for the gift card.
4. Decorate and embellish as desired.
