Gift Card Holder
Gift cards are a common gift idea and are a thoughtful way to support the people in your life. Today I am excited to create gift card holders wit a coffee theme. End of school year means I need tons of teacher, teacher’s aide, bus driver and staff and student gifts. Here is one of the ways we share our gratitude to the teaching staff for our boys, in support of the loving care they so freely offer. How do you support the care givers in your life?
Coffee Cafe Gift Card Holder
Knowing I would place a coffee company’s gift card inside, I want to be sure to coordinate the colors of the gift card into my project. Today my color palette is Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso. These colors work well together, and apparently have for years! Knowing these colors in advance, I could plan which stamps to help accent the colors. Coffee Cafe Bundle is a fun way to mimic the theme of the gift to fit the occasion.
The gift card holder is created to fit the size of the gift card itself. Most gift cards come with a holder and it’s not wrong to simply glue that holder to the inside of my diy card. Being me, I like to customize the gift card holder as much as possible 🙂 To hold the plastic card inside the card, I used the coffee bean die cuts to anchor the plastic card. Glue Dots work well to hold the die cut in place and still allow the card to slide away from the gift card holder.
For a visual demonstration of these techniques, see the video below.
