Hi there, 

Nicole here to share a make with you presenting a gift card for fathers day. It is always much more fun presenting gift cards in a nice way, instead of just inside a card. For this I used:

  • Papermilldirect Buff card
  • Papermilldirect Ivory paper plain

I used a piece of paper to make a rough template, you can see this below. I cut the card to 23.7cm long and folded it in half length ways.

Keep the piece you cut off as this will be used to make a pocket for the gift card. Fold the card in half again to make a wallet shape.

Step 2 Card Holder Dad

I repeated these steps in the Buff card. I used a strong tape (red line) to adhere the sides together.

Step 3 Card Holder Dad

Once you fold the card back down onto the tape you have a wallet with an opening on the top for 'money' or in my case, a note. I left the note sticking up a lot so it was quite obvious.

I used the excess piece that was cut off and stuck that on with red line tape after rounding the corners to make the pocket for the gift card.

I die cut a shape for the front and stamped DAD on this. I added some faux stitching onto it also. I used a gold thread for this.

I think this is a really fun way to present a gift card, and makes it that bit more exciting for the reciever!
