TLC165 - Gift Card Holder
TLC165 - Gift card holder

I stumbled upon this adorable gift card holder….

Pinefeather is a highly talented gal, and is a former Dirty Girl. Thanks for sharing your talents! She says in her blog that this is inspired by an item she received from Erin Blair in a swap.

ETA: emarj just sent me a link to a tutorial for a very similar gift card holder. The creator of the tutorial is Claudia from Germany, and you can find it here:
The words are in German, but the pictures are very clear and great for those that appreciate a visual (like me!). Thanks, my friend, for sending me the link. More information and inspiration is always a good thing!

Another ETA: Debi/SassiAngel sent me this link to a video tutorial. Thanks!!
"Dawn Griffith has a video tutorial on making this gift card holder. The only thing different is that she doesn't stamp on the inside. I bookmarked this awhile ago planning on making some. Some of us are "visual learners", so this video makes it very easy to understand. Check it out:


A third ETA: Amber/bambi64 and Glenda S sent me the link to reneejul1's tutorial:
Thanks to you all for sharing! :)

I am sure there are more tutorials for this same fold, but let's call it enough for this particular challenge! I really appreciate y'all hooking us up with more info!! More info = always good. :mrgreen:

It is very simple to make and I like how it is different from the ‘usual’ pocket type gift card holders.

Here is mine:

I am soooooooooooooooooo not going to make one of these!!! LOL I just made 350 for my nieces wedding which were very, very similar, just a slightly different measurement. I don't think I will EVER make another ;o) I'm cheating and showing you the ones I did for the wedding.


ButterflyEars 04-21-2008 06:30 AM

Oh my goodness this is the easiest gift card I've ever made and I've tried many. I will use this style from now on. Thanks again.

How fun! I really enjoyed pulling this together. I dry embossed too with my new light box (so much easier with that!).

Here's my Dry Embossed Gift Card Holder
