Tuesday Tutorial: The World's Easiest Gift Card Holder

You know I like to show you all the quick and easy stuff and today's tutorial is no different!  This is a gift card holder that is so fast and easy that you can make it in minutes.

Here is what you'll need:

One Envelope (I used the invitation size)
Stamps or Digistamps
Cardstock and Designer Paper (Optional)
Adhesive
Ribbon

Step 1:
Fold your envelope in half, with the flap to the inside of the fold.


Step 2:
Cut the flap along the score mark, so that the flap is now in two parts. 

Step 3:
Lick (or use adhesive) to adhere the left portion of the flap down to the envelope.  Cut and remove the right portion of the flap.

Step 4:
Add ribbon for use as a closure if desired.  Stamp and add embellishments to finish!

Easy peasy, right?
My project features one of our new Geishas, Miyako Tea.

Perfect timing. Have a b-day party this weekend and I was trying to think of a new idea for a card.Excellent idea. I can also use it for teachers gifts.

Oh my goodness! You are a genious! I would NEVER have thought of this! Love it! I think I would add a little glue to the left inside of the envie before sealing to keep the gift card from sliding over to that side when card is opened. My mind is just whirling...how can I adapt this idea to a wedding favor....hmmm.....Thanks for sharing this fantabulous idea!!!
