Pop Up Gift Card Holder Tutorial
1 x white card @ 4.5″ x 3.5″
Score the 9″ x 4.5″ piece on the long side at 4.5″
Score the 4.5″ x 3.5″ piece on the short side at 0.5″, 2″ and 3″
On the 4.5″ x 3.5″, in the between the second and third scorelines (the 1″ section), measure in 0.5″ on each side (on the 4.5″ side)
Use a craft knife to make a slit from one pencil mark to the other, using the ruler as a guide.
Move the ruler down about 1/16″ and make a second slit. Cut away the strip of card between the slits to make an opening for the gift card.
Take the 9″ x 4.5″ piece of card and fold in half to make a 4.5″ square base. From the centre scoreline, measure down 1″ and mark with a pencil. On the other side, measure up 1.5″ and mark with a pencil.
Take the gift card holder and apply double sided tape to the 0.5″ sections on each end.
With the gift card opening towards the top, adhere the bottom 0.5″ section, lining it up with the 1″ pencil mark.
Adhere the other end, lining it up to the 1.5″ pencil mark.
Fold up the back of the card and your gift card holder should look like this.
Close up the card and burnish the scoreline with a bone folder.
Cut one each white card measuring
4 3/8″ x 2 7/8″
4 3/8″ x 1 3/8″
4 3/8″ x 4 3/8″Cut one each patterned paper at
4 1/4″ x 2 3/4″
4 1/4″ x 1 1/4″
Adhere the inside panels as shown.
Adhere a length of ribbon to the front centre of the card base, bringing it about 2″ towards the middle and secure with some double sided tape. Repeat for the back of the card base.
Remove the backing from the tape securing the ribbon and adhere the card front over the ribbon.
Adhere the 4 3/8″ x 4 3/8″ piece of card over the ribbon on the back of the card base.
Die cut some borders and embellishments.
Cut a tag, or other shape for the inside of the card, and stamp the Warmth, Joy, Happiness sentiment towards the top, so as to leave room to write a personal note. Cut a small tag and stamp the For You sentiment.
Stamp and colour the images and cut out with a circle die.
Mat the image onto a larger circle and any desired embellishments
Thread some white twine though the hole on the tag and adhere to the inside bottom of the card base. Trim the scalloped border to size and adhere to the front of the pop up card holder.
Embellish the front of the card, and adhere the image using 3D foam tape for extra dimension. Tie the ribbons to close up the card.
