Here is a pretty simple Christmas gift card holder I made using the Candy Cane Christmas paper which has totally sold out as of today! Oh no! I hope you got a pack before they were all gone. This was some really cool paper that was textured and shiny, almost gel like. Here is a close up below of what it looked like.
If you would like to try and make one of these, just take a quarter sheet of cardstock ( 5 1/2 by 4 1/4) and score the longest side at 2 1/2 and 5. Put sticky strip on the little 1/2 inch flap and close. Decorate the front and then punch a hole in the top. Slide your ribbon straight through the 2 holes and then use your gift card to push the ribbon down as you slide the card in. THen tie a knot or bow on top. THe gift card will just slide in and out as you pull the ribbon up.
