I made this cute gift card holder, and it was super easy. I think it took me about 45 min from start to finish. I started with a standard envelope, folded in half. Next I cut the flap at the fold mark, and attached the top portion of the flap to the back. The bottom will be left open so that the gift card can be put in. Next, I attached a peice of ribbon to the back of the envelope, so that I could tie it together at the bottom and kep the gift card holder closed.
The next step was easy, find pretty pattern paper and cut to size. Next I cut out the phrase "a bright future" using my cricut, along with the starburst and attached it to the front. Then I cut the pretty yellow flowers out from pattern paper and attached them to the inside. To finish it off, I punched out a circle, attached a yellow flower and attached it to the flap. I wanted to make sure that you knew to lift it, to get your gift.
The best thing about this project, is that it can double as a card as well. You could, leave the top part of the inside blank to write a short note or phrase.
