Endless Birthday Wishes Gift Card Holder

Don't you just love a Tuesday that feels like a Monday?  Or maybe what I love is the prospect of Friday coming a lot sooner this week!  I can only hope. :)

Today I have a fun card that serves double duty as a gift card holder.  This card is super simple in its construction, and really wows the recipient when they open it.  Or maybe it's the gift card inside that offers the wow?  No, I think it's the fact that the gift card pops up, because I recently gave a similar card to a relative that never shows any kind of appreciation over my handmade cards, and this one elicited the tiniest hit of being impressed from said relative.

Tips & Tricks

  • Cut two pieces of Designer Series Paper or card stock 4" x 6" each, and score at 1", 2", and 3" so there are 4 one inch sections.
  • Apply Sticky Strip as shown in the picture below (I'll refer to the top piece as piece A and the bottom as piece B). 
  • Attach the bottom section of piece A to the inside, along the top of the crease, then fold over so that the top section of piece A is attached to the inside just under the crease.
  • Piece B has Sticky Strip on only one section.  Lay this section on the inside of the card, below the already attached DSP so that the edge with the sticky strip is up against the already attached piece.
  • Fold over and attach this piece to the sticky strip that's on the first piece (A).
  • Just slide your gift card down between the two pieces of DSP!
