plaid christmas gift card holder

Make gift giving a little more special by creating a unique card to present it in. This paper "present" slides up to reveal a gift card.
Step 1

First, cut the bottom of the cardstock for the box to 5½" x 6" [13.97 cm x 15.24 cm], then score and fold it in half to 5½" x 3" [13.97 cm x 7.62 cm]. Adhere the sides closed, but leave the top open. Set aside.

Step 2

Cut a piece of cardstock to make the insert that will hold the gift card to 4¾" x 3½" [12 cm x 8.9 cm]. Lay the gift card in the middle and make a light pencil mark about ¼" [0.64 cm] in and down from each corner. Now connect the marks at each corner and cut a slit with the craft knife so that you can insert the gift card into the holder.

Step 3

To make the top of the box, cut a piece of cardstock  6" x 3" [15.24 cm x 7.62 cm], then score and fold it in half to 6" x 1½" [15.24 cm x 3.8 cm]. Slide the insert about ¼" [0.64 cm] in and adhere the insert into the top, middle. Make sure this piece will slide into the bottom piece of the box.
TIP: Trim a little cardstock off the bottom of the insert if it doesn't set in properly.

Step 4

Embellish the box with washi tape, stickers and a jute bow.

Step 5

Make a tag from kraft cardstock, punch a hole and slide it onto the bow. Adhere it in place with adhesive.
