Sarah's June Make N' Take

Hello June!!! Father's day is almost here. Do you have a card yet? If not you can make one of these nifty gift card holders! What man wouldn't love a gift card to Home Depot or Best Buy? I know my DH surely would.

I saw a gift card holder like this on one of the manufacturer's blogs. I just can't remember which one it was. I simplified it a little and made a few changes here and there to make it a little easier, but it is not my idea alone. I am just passing on the inspiration.

Here's what you will need:

1. The June SO kit! It's perfect for Father's Day or birthdays. But if you don't have the kit yet a sheet of cardstock and some patterned paper will do.
2. A circle punch (Mine is a two inch diameter)
3. A gift card!

And that's it. Pretty easy to put together. So let's get started!

Step One: Trim cardstock to 4 3/4 by 12 inches.

Step two: Fold carstock in half.

Step three: Fold each side in half again to make an accordian like below.

Step four: Trim 1/2 inch from the top and bottom of the two middle sections as shown below.

Step five: Place adhesive inside the card along the two pencil lines below. This will make our gift card pocket.

Step six: Decorate the inside.

Step 7: Punch a third of a circle from the top of the gift card pocket.

Step 8: Decorate front, add gift card and hide until Father's Day.

These would be perfect for birthdays, showers, thank you's, etc. Happy June and Happy Father's Day!
