It is getting to be that time of year when we all start thinking about gift giving. There are so many people we can give gifts too, and some that I always like to remember are my kids teachers. Teachers do SO much for their students, and I think a lot of times they don’t get the appreciation that they deserve. Today I’m going to show you how to make this Simple Teacher Gift – Gift Card Holder. This could be used for anyone, but when I made it, I had teachers in mind. They spend so much of their own money, out of their own pocket, I know they would appreciate receiving a gift card to somewhere like Target or Wal-mart, or even teacher supply stores.
Holiday Gift Card Holder Supplies:
- Spotted 12 x 12 Tillie Scarlet and Tillie Mantis
- Kraft 80 lb. Cardstock Smooth
- Striped Ribbon in Red & Green
- White Twine
- Paper Trimmer
- Die Cutting Machine or Punch for Snowflake
Step 1. Cut your Tillie Scarlet and Tillie Mantis paper into a 4.25″ x 6.5″ rectangle. Looking at the paper vertically, score your paper at 1.25″ from the bottom and again at 4.25″ from the bottom. The score lines will have 3″ between them. Fold on the score lines.
Step 2. On the 1.25″ flap, put adhesive on both sides, then fold to create the pocket for the gift card.
Step 3. Put your gift card in the pocket.
Step 4. Put two strips of adhesive across the front of the gift card holder.
Step 5. Lay your ribbon across the adhesive, ruffling it as you stick it down.
Step 6. Use your scissors to trim the extra ribbon off the edges.
Step 7. Tie your twine around the card holder, over the top of the ribbon.
Step 8. Use your die cutting machine or punch to cut a snowflake out of the Kraft Cardstock. Tie it on with the twine.
You are all done! These are so easy to put together, you could have several of these put together in no time, and have them ready to give to the teachers.
