DIY Gift Card Envelope: The Right Steps
Print the DIY gift card envelope template. Save it with the right click of your mouse. Choose ‘Save Image As’. Name the file if you want. In case you save this file on the desktop you could call it anyway and delete it after you finish your project.
Open the image. Print your gift card envelope template out. Use scrapbook paper or ordinary paper (that means that you will need to trace it onto your scrapbook paper later). As a matter of fact, you shouldn’t scale the image when you print. It’s the right size for an 8.5×11″ piece of paper.
Trace the template onto your scrapbook paper if you haven’t printed it on the scrapbook paper already. Then skip this step. Cut out the gift card holder template (free here) you printed and trace the outline onto your scrapbook paper.
Remember to cut the slit in the middle in order to secure the flap which holds the gift card in place. You know, not only your gift card envelope (DIY) could please the person you send it to, but also the DIY gift card itself (two in one!)
Glue the tabs. Fold on the dotted lines and glue the tabs to create the gift card.
Now your envelope is ready to pair with a DIY paper gift card that you made yourself! I hope so.
