Hello! Renee here to share a step-by-step tutorial of Christmas Gift Cards made using the Holly Jolly collection. It’s my favorite time of year again…creating cute gifts for teachers! I decided to do something a little different this year since I’m making gifts just for Payton’s teachers this year. So, I created Christmas cards with a super simple gift card holder inside. Christmas Gift Cards…a bit of a play on words. 😉
I trimmed the Gingerbread (shown below) and Peppermints pattern papers to 6 ½” x 12″. I scored the papers at the 4 ¾”, 6″, and 7 ¼” marks. I first scored the center 6 ” mark and then went 1 ¼” to the left and 1 ¼” to the right from the center mark.
- I folded the pattern paper in half.
- I flipped the first part up and folded at the 7 ¼” score line.
- I flipped the pattern paper and folded at the 4 ¾” score line.
- Now the Christmas Gift Card inserts are ready to prepare for the actual gift cards.
- To prepare the inserts for the gift cards, I first added adhesive along the edges of where the gift card would go using the gift card as my guide.
- I brought the folds together and adhered them.
- I marked the center of the pattern paper at 3 ¼”. I marked the other two spots based off of the size of the gift card. So, for this gift card, I marked the pattern paper at 1 ¼” and 5 ¼”.
- I used my paper trimmer to cut off ¼” of the pattern paper staying within the previous marks and then used scissors to make my final cuts. Simple and sweet!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere my gift card inserts to the insides of my cards.
I embellished the cards with adorable bits from the Holly Jolly Ephemera Die-Cuts. I created a bow for the die-cut wreath using the Christmas Plaid pattern paper and the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Styleboard Dies.
Love Santa trimming the Christmas tree for this card!
Love the beautiful wreath embellishment for this card!
