Gift Card Holders From Scrap Papers

These days I seem to give more gift cards than ever before.  Perhaps the pandemic makes them easier (and safer) to give and use.  With all the variety of gift cards available now I was pleased to find a die set from Stampendous (at HM Ben Franklin Crafts) that I could use to help decrease my mountain of scrap papers.  Rather than make all the card holders the same, it was fun to see what I could create from a hodge podge of print and solid papers.
For each card holder I tried to leave a blank place inside for a message. If you look carefully you can see the corner slits where the gift card can be inserted. Because these gift card holders were meant to be used and discarded, I didn't spent too much time on them and added simple sticker embellishments.  My favorite holder is the lavender one because of the color and the artificial flower that was glued on the corner.  I tried to decorate the card holders so that they would be useable for a variety of occasions.  I really recommend that you get the Stampendous die because it is a good set that will inspire you to make use of your scraps.  Aren't you tired of making tags from your scraps?

Your gift card holders turned out so pretty! Great idea to make several at a time to tame the stash of scraps and to have handy at all times at a moment's notice!

What a fabulous idea!!! I have an abundance of scraps. Along with giving a gift card in the holder, adding some empty gift card holders for the recipient to use for future gift-giving would be great. Thanks for sharing.
