12 Weeks Of Christmas Week 8: Envelope Punch Board Gift Card Holders

My new Envelope punch board arrived just as I was preparing my Stamp A Stack.  I seriously love this little gem of a tool.  I have used it for lots of things, not just envelopes & today I made these cute gift card holders with it.  Once again I have used the Season Of Style DSP & following on with the cute theme this week I have chosen the Color Me Christmas Stamp Set.  I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set in the catalogue I had to have it!

These are really easy to make & look great.  I give a lot of gift cards at Christmas so they will come in very handy!  My card holder is an adapted version of one Jackie Topa made (If you click her name it will take you directly to her post with a video on how to make her version).  To make this version you need a piece of card stock 4 1/4" x 11".  Score this at 2" & 7 3/8".  Insert the short end into the envelope punch board & line up with the 1" mark.  Punch then flip over & do the same, that is line it up at the 1" mark & punch again. I put sticky strip up either side of the flap to hold the card in place.  Jackie does a stepped up version which takes a bit longer.
