Matchbook Gift Card Holder

This is a fun and simple way to give a gift card to someone. The card is designed like an 'old fashioned' book of matches - the front piece slips behind a flap at the bottom to hold it closed.

Inside are two small manilla envelopes, these can be found at office supply stores and are called coin envelopes. The great thing is that they are the perfect size to hold a store gift card. Just cut the top flap off and then use a circle punch to create a small notch so that it is easy to remove items from the pockets.

Two envelopes are used so that one can hold a gift card, and the other a small card for you to write a message.

The cute little tree was made using the Treetops stamp set and decorated with Bitty Brads and mini Sparkles. And the paper is actually a surfboard print from the Moon Doggie paper packet.


Thanks for your comments! It is always nice to hear some feedback. :)
