Looking for a fun and easy way to package a gift card? We can help!
Whether it’s the holidays or any other gift-giving occasion, gift cards continue to be popular to give and fun to receive—especially when they’re presented in an “out-of-the-ordinary” way.
In today’s video, Julie transforms an ordinary A-2 card into an elegant gift card sleeve. They’re easy to make with a few score lines and a couple of snips and if you need to follow a sketch, Julie has drawn up a PDF you can download.
- Although you can use a scoring board, a straight edge ruler and a craft knife, using a straight blade trimmer that comes with a scoring blade, like the Fiskars 12” Paper Trimmer helps speed the whole process up because you don’t need to switch tools.
- No time to color? Clear emboss your images onto a colored card stock for an easy elegant look!
- A Teflon Bone folder helps create crisp folds along your score lines and doesn’t leave a shine on the paper.
- Due to varying paper thicknesses/weights, you may have to trim the interior sliding panel once you’ve assembled the sleeve, to make sure it slides in and out easily and doesn’t cause the sleeve to buckle.
