Gift Card Envelopes

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Gift cards, like fruitcake before them, have become a staple of the holiday season -- albeit a welcome one. But even this common gift can be something special when it's presented in a festive envelope recycled from an old holiday card.


  • Old holiday card
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam
  • Toothpick
  • Tape or glue dots


  1. Cut the shape shown from a card (or download our template). Place the card on a soft surface, such as a piece of craft foam, and use a toothpick to score fold lines as shown.
  2. Fold the envelope, then place the card inside and seal the edges with tape or glue dots.
