Sparkle & Swirl Gift Card Holder

Last week I was asked to make 25 Gift Card holders for a company event.  The holders had to hold not only the gift card but the cardboard sleeve it was wrapped in.  My first thought was to use an envelope, but I had done that last year and wanted something new.

My second thought was to ask my friend to search for tutorials online for me.  I was in a serious time crunch and only had 3 days.  Then I remembered the tutorial I did for StampNation and knew that I could adapt it to fit this large size.

Instead of using an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock, I cut 12" x 12"cardstock down to 6" x 9.5" to create these "envelopes".  I needed 25 of these puppies and I didn't have 25 sheets of Whisper White cardstock left.  (Yes, I placed my SU order last weekend.)  By using 12x12 paper I was able to get 2 holders out of each sheet of paper.

I think they turned out pretty nice and everyone seemed happy with them.  If you would like to see the video on how to createthis style of gift card, you can find it HERE on StampNation.
