Fast & Easy Silhouette Gift Card Holder

Christmas Gift Card Tutoriual

I am really not a fan of giving gift cards for Christmas (which is really quite strange because I LOVE receiving them), but I have some friends and family that I want to buy for but I never know what to get them.  So I have been known to resort to the trusty gift card.  To me, I feel like I have given up and wasn’t willing to put forth the effort, (which my husband reminds me is crazy because again, I love gift cards).

So to make up for my lack of a perfect gift, I at least want to make the gift card look pretty and presentable.

Last week when I was getting the last couple of things together for my family Christmas Party I realized that I hadn’t “wrapped” my brother in law’s gift card yet. So I turned to to my Silhouette Cameo.

A couple weeks ago Deer Card Pocket (Design ID #36245) was the FREE File and I had downloaded it. So I thought this was a perfect time to put it to use.

I cut the 2 main pieces out of green card stock, and the deer silhouette out of white.

Fold the envelope on the score lines and apply glue to the tabs.

Then I glued the Deer Silhouette to the front of the envelope pocket and used a red rhinestone as the nose.  Used a couple glue dots to secure the gift card to the pocket insert and finished it off with a piece of ribbon.

Easy Peasy!

I actually put the whole thing together in front of my photo box as I was taking pictures and it took me all of 5 minutes and that includes the taking picture time.
