Gift Card Holder Birthday Fun

Hi there! It’s Thanh bringing you a quick and fun tutorial on the YNS blog today. August is a BIG month for YNS and I figured I would get in early on the fun and feature a birthday gift card holder.

You may have seen a reoccurring pattern in my YNS projects; I keep using the Fast Food Sentiments and Dies! I can’t seem to get enough use out of them as they are so much fun, especially when I add faces to the food and make them really come to life. This gift card is really quick to make, I hope you’ll end up making one yourself.

Here are most of the supplies I used:

YNS Supply List:

Step 1: Cut a 4.25 x 11 inch piece of cardstock

Step 2: Using a scoring board, start from the left side and score at 3, 4.25, 5.5 and 8.5 inches as seen below:

Step 3: Cut your cardstock into two pieces at the 4.25 inch score line. The smaller piece will measure 4.25 x 4.25 and the bigger piere will measure 4.25 x 6.75 inches as seen below:

Step 4: Fold all your score lines and adhere the 1.25 inch flaps together by sticking the adhesive on the short edges as well as along the scored line only (you’ll be putting your gift card here)

Step 5: If you want to give your card a finished look on the inside, cut four pieces of patterned paper:
 2.75 x 4 (two), 1 x 4 and 2.25 x 4 as seen below:

Step 6:  You have the choice to round your corners on the closing envelope side and decorate the inside as you wish! I chose to use my Fast Food set:

Step 7: Decorate the front of the gift card holder any way you like. To make the band, I cut a .75 x 7.5 inch strip and folded it around my score lines. Then I adhered the overlapping ends together and adhered the die cut frame to it:

Here’s a close up of the fast food dies:

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this quick tutorial today! If you end up running to craft room to make one, please let me know. Thanks for dropping in.
