A Gift Card so You Can Buy Coffee

Here is a fun pop up gift card holder that I made for the Try a new Technique challenge on Split Coast. You can see the instructions on making this here in the forums
Basically it's a 4 x 12 piece of paper that you score at 4" and 8" along the 12" side. Fold and crease the scores. Then you fold the middle square in half (that creates the center piece inside) You cut a slit in that fold to slip your gift card into and adhere the 3 edges (not the side with the slit). Then you adhere it to a 4 1/4" square.

I used this fun coffee themed stamp set from Artful INKables called Warm Drinks for Cold Days for my Starbucks Gift card included in the slot inside.I used a word window punch to punch the slot for the card instead of just making a slit with an exacto knife as it instructs in the tutorial. I also added ribbon around it so it could be tied shut - something you might want to omit or at least leave untied if you were mailing it! (too bulky!)This is a really easy and quick gift card holder - perfect for any gift giving event!
