Matchbook Gift Card Holder




This is my slightly altered matchbook gift card holder. This will fit in a standard envelope to mail! I used the All Holidays stamp set and Season of Joy. I also used the Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder.
Here are the measurements.

The main part of the card (Certainly Celery) is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece scored at 1 1/8" and then 6 1/2" from one edge.

The part that holds the gift card (Certainly Celery) measures 3 3/4" x 4 1/2" and is scored at 1/2" and 4" from one edge.
For the part that the gift card goes on, the Certainly Celery back is 4 1/4" x 3". The white piece on top is 4 1/8" x 2 7/8". To get the slit punch semi-circles in the right place to hold the card, put the card down on the white paper.
Trace lines on the long ends of the card, this will be the back so you won't see them.


Put the slit punch just past the line and punch.


Use the tab punch to make the part you pull to get it out (Real Red).


The only other part to think about is if you don't want your brads to show on the back of the card, put them through the top layer and the gift card sheath and not the back layer of the card. Then tape down the card holder to make the pocket. Make sense?

That is really cute. May I ask how you get the flat spot while you used the embossing folder?
