IT’S A CRACKER!!

I have been wanting to share this with you for a while. Finally I can! Giving Gift cards are popular at Christmas so why not dress them up in a novelty gift holder.  Here is a Cracker Gift Holder made with the Envelope Punch Board.

So how can you make it??  Check out the tutorial below.

1. METRIC: Cut card 14.8cmx14.8cm. Score your card at 6cm and 12cm. Fold on the score lines.

    IMPERIAL: Cut card to 6″x6″.  Score your card at 2 3/8″ and 4 6/8″.  (I hope those sound right as I am not too sure of the correct way to represent it!!).  Fold on the score lines.

2..On the folded edge, line the left hand side of the card on the Envelope Punch Board at 2.5cm (1″). Punch.  It is a bit hard to punch through so press firmly.

Flip your card over to the other end. Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and Punch.

3.  Now punch on the front bottom edge of the holder.  It is easier to open it out. Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and punch.  Then flip and punch at 2.5cm (1″) on the other end.

4. Fold up where the narrow scored line is. Does this make sense?? The part that forms the pocket.  Turn it over.  Line up at 2.5cm (1″) and punch, flip the holder over and punch again at 2.5cm (1″) on the other end.

This is how it should look when you fold it out.

There you have it.  I hope this makes sense.  Please comment/email me if you are unsure.  Sometimes it is hard getting all the details in writing.

To assemble this, add Sticky Strip inside on the narrow edge on both ends.  Adhere together to form a pocket. Now decorate it as you like and then add your Gift Card.

Why not make it a Stampin’ Up! Gift card to give this Christmas??  These ones are available especially from me (Australian residents only).

Now go and enjoy making your own Christmas Cracker Gift Card Holder.

Until next time,
