Hello Friends! Amy here from The Happy Scraps today. One of my very favorite things to create is Teacher Gifts. I love letting the teachers that my kids have know that they are very much appreciated. Sometimes it’s as simple as giving a gift card. Today I’m sharing with you how quick it is to make a cute gift card holder, the perfect way to say Thank you to those teachers that do so much!
I grabbed a piece of the Spring Fling Party Time Cardstock and cut it into 4″ x 6″. I picked out the Thank you from the Spring Fling Foiled Vellum Quote Cards to use with it.
I pulled out my sewing machine and stitched around three sides of the vellum.
It created this fun pocket, the perfect size for a gift card.
Using the Spring Fling Scattered Daisies Cardstock, I cut a circular spiral, so I could create a 3D flower.
I used a brown ink pad for the edges.
I started on the outer edge, and rolled the flower until I got to the center. I placed an adhesive dot in the center, and stuck the rolled flower down to it, to secure it.
Using another adhesive dot, I attached it to the front of the gift card holder.
I added a couple more flowers to it from the Spring Fling Puffy Sticker Flowers.
The last thing left to do was place the gift card in the pocket. Once I had it all finished, I decided that I wanted to use the brown ink on the edges of it as well, so I added that.
Not only is it perfect for holding gift cards, but it looks cute without anything in the pocket as well!
For the second card holder, I picked out the Spring Fling Patchwork and Spring Fling Lace papers and cut the Patchwork paper down to size for a pocket. The Lace paper was also 4″ x 6″ like the one above. I inked the edges of both papers.
I stitched the pocket on, stitching on three sides as well. I pulled a sticker from the Spring Fling Sticker Book, and used cornstarch on the back of it to take the sticky away. Then I mounted it on the card front with dimensional adhesive. Using a little bit of pink twine, I tied it around the label.
The gift card slide in the side of this gift card holder.
So whether you’re looking for a Teacher Appreciation gift or an End of Year Teacher gift, a gift card is always a great idea! Give them one for their favorite store, movie theater or restaurant. I’m sure they will love it!
