Christmas Gift Card Holder.

11/24/2017 | Lynn Lilly
Howdy, everyone! It’s Anita here today to share a fun project with you. Since my kids are all grown, we tend to give a lot of gift cards at Christmas time. I love to find new ways to present the gift cards and this year I am using the Deflecto Flexible pouches. They are so very easy to decorate, and they turn out super cute!
Deflecto Flexible Pouches come in two sizes, and they are great for all kinds of projects! I used the smaller size for this gift card holder. These pouches are also great for storing paint samples and color combos; they are super handy to carry in your purse when you are shopping. You can also use the large size pouches to create a mini album – check it out here.
I started by covering both sides of the pouch with patterned paper. I used the new Milk and Cookies line from Doodlebug Designs. It is so cute! On the back side of the pouch where the plastic overlaps, I adhered a smaller piece of paper to slip inside.
I adorned the front of the pouch with more paper from the Milk and Cookies line. I love to add faux stitching to my projects – it just adds so much visual depth to a piece! I layered die cut stickers, paper accents, and some amazingly cute Shape Sprinkles to embellish this side. My last step was to outline the sticker shape with a thin black pen – it just makes the shape pop off the page. I am in LOVE with the Stabilo Point 88 Thin Line pens. Those things are amazing an give the best thin line!
On the reverse side I added more paper accents. The sentiment is created with Joy Embroidered Letters. These two colors were perfect for this paper line, and this font is so fun and playful. I cut a matching piece of cardstock to fit inside the pouch and adhered the gift card using temporary tape. Punch a hole at the end of the cardstock and tie on lots of ribbons to finish it off.
Who wouldn’t love to get this super cute Gift Card Holder? I am pretty sure there are going to be a few of them floating around the tree on Christmas morning here at our house. To see more great ideas using Deflecto Products be sure to check out our Pinterest page and Facebook!
