i found this simple pop-up giftcard holder on SCS and Hero Arts.
Thought I'd share with everyone.
I'm thinking of making a few to keep on hand for birthdays and whatnot!
What you'll need:
4 X 12 Piece of patterned paper (or you can make your own by stamping a piece of 4 X 12 piece of cardstock)
4-1/4 X 4-1/4 Square piece of coordinating cardstock (used as mat for mounting the interior of gift card)
Take your 4 X 12 piece and score it 4" from one end (horizontal orientation) - flip to the other end and score 4" from that end. This will give you a piece divided into 3- 4" squares
Here is the video from Hero Arts blog:
Burnish all score lines with your bone folder
Take the middle square and fold it in half, creating the Pop Up portion of this card in a "hill" -^-
Using your gift card as a guide, cut a slit in the center of middle of your folded piece large enough for your gift card to slide into
Adhere the back side of your pop up portion to your 4-1/4" square piece of cardstock
Embellish as desired
Insert gift card (the important part)
