DIY Easter Gift Card Holders

Monday, March 26, 2012


 

Happy Monday everyone! It's standardized testing week at school so it will be a super busy one for me. Say a little prayer for us. My students have been working so hard to prepare for this this test!

I wanted to pop in today with a fun entry for the Moxie Fab World Practical Solutions Week: The Household Items Challenge. Love their fun challenges!

My home office has a stack of old and worn out file folders. Instead of throwing them out, I decided to recycle them and make gift card holders for my little cousins for Easter.
I found this really cool library card pocket template online. I printed it out and traced it on each file folder. I then cut it out and added Easter embellies. So super fun and easy to make. Want the template for yourself? Click {Here}. You can adjust the size to your liking using Picassa or Photoshop too. It is also best to use file folders with the wide tabs on them.


I added a doily and a Pretty Little Studios Peter Rabbit Vintage Tag to the front. This is the perfect embellishment for Easter projects.


When using the template, make sure you leave enough room on the inside of your pocket so that your gift card fits perfectly inside. I also added a Martha Stewart Crafts toothpick embellie.


Hope you enjoyed my little project.
Please join me tomorrow for more crafty fun!
