Who doesn't give gift cards for Christmas? They're convenient to give, but also awesome to receive! I do like to package mine in something handmade, however, since it doesn't take much effort to purchase them. Today I'm sharing a diy gift card holder that is so stinkin' cute and is super easy to make! I cranked out 50 of them this afternoon! Fifty?!?!? Yep, but not for me. For the second year in a row, I was given the opportunity to make them for a local boutique, Mainstream Boutique. They give them out with every gift card purchase! Mainstream is my very favorite place to shop, so it's a win for me! I earn credit toward my upcoming purchases! I'm anticipating a few of those during their annual candy cane sale on black Friday. I have a standing date with my daughter-in-law, Lauren. It's always a fun surprise to see what discount will be attached to the candy cane we choose!
Simply pull the ribbon to expose the little card that holds the gift card!
Here are some of the designs I created by simply punching images from the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper. I'm not the originator of this idea. Fellow demonstrator, Terri Gaines taught me and a group of other demonstrators how to make them.
Rather than try to tell you in writing how to make them, I though it might be easier to follow a video! You'll also get a peek at my latest purchase from Mainstream Boutique!

- Real Red cardstock . . . 2" x 8-1/2", punch both ends with Scallop Tag Topper Punch
- Whisper White cardstock . . . One piece . . . 2-3/4" x 5-3/8", score at 1-1/2" from both ends
- Second piece . . . 2-1/8" x 3-3/8", for insert
- White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon . . . 15" piece
In the video, I totally drew a blank for the name of the product I used to add the red glimmer for Rudolph's nose . . . it was Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details! It was super easy to apply, just be sure to allow to dry before handling!
