Gift cards always end up rolling around in my desk. I created this pretty envelope to hold all of our gift cards and certificates. Now I won’t have to go digging in our desk for buried treasure!
- Envelope template from Paper Source, size A7. If you don’t have envelope templates, you can easily search for and print out one to use.
- Pretty paper. I used this yellow blossom print from Paper Source but I don’t see it on their site anymore.
- Glue/Tape. Needs to be strong stuff so the envelope will be durable.
First, glue your paper to the cardstock, then trace and cut out the envelope template. The cardstock will give the envelope some heft and durability.
Finally, glue the envelope together. Trick: if you have a lot of gift cards, glue the envelope with the gift cards already inside. If you glue the envelope by itself completely flat, there won’t be much “give” in the envelope. If you glue it with some stuff already inside, it’ll give the envelope a little puffy shape and more room.
