How To Make Matchbook Gift Card Holders 0 comments  
      
   

Add packaging pizazz to gift cards this season

Posted by lauralooloo

Some people think gift cards are a cop-out during the gift-giving season . . .but I for one LOVE to receive a gift card! Come on, free money for guilt-free shopping expeditions!? It's the gift that keeps on giving! Jazzing up a gift card in fun packaging can give the gift card some added zip and personality. It's the perfect finishing touch.

These matchbook gift card holders can be whipped up in just a few minutes, using whatever supplies you have on hand.  

In addition to my everyday tools and supplies, here's what else I used:

Bo Bunny Snow Day collection: patterned papers - Pajamas, and Journal, plus Bo Bunny Snow Day cardstock stickers

Cappuchino Brown Bakers Twine 

Canvas Corp Mini Flat Bags

Scor-Pal (The Scor-Pal makes quick work of the scored lines on this project, but a ruler and folding by hand will get the job done as well.)

 

First, we'll construct the matchbook base.

Trim patterned paper (or cardstock) strip to 9.25x3 inches.  Score strip at 4, 4.25, and 8.5.

Fold in and sand edges.

Staple the small flap near the very bottom.  This will keep the large flap secure when you tuck it in.  

(Before you staple, fold the large flap in, so you know how low to add the staple.)

To prepare the pocket, use a small flat bag (like Canvas Corp's Mini Bag) and punch a half circle from the top front.

Adhere pocket to inside of matchbook.  Now comes the fun part. . .decorating!


I created two different coordinating gift card holders, simply playing around with the Bo Bunny Snow Day cardstock stickers, and journaling paper.  I added some twine to finish off the projects and then all that's left is to add the gift card of your choice.

I decorated the front of each, plus the inside flap, using a journaling tag to add a "to/from" and a little note.

And the bonus . . .

With just the two sheets of patterned paper, plus coordinating stickers I had enough leftover product to create three quick cards with the addition of just some cardstock in my stash!  I like to make up cards when I have coordinating product already out. That way, I can use up scraps while the mess is already spread out, and then I have a few spare cards to give away.

Remember that the matchbook gift card holder can be easily transitioned from a winter theme to any holiday or celebration you can think of.  Follow the same instructions and substitute any themed product you'd like!
