I found a template for a pop-up gift card holder on the PaperCrafts Connection Blog and wanted to try it.
I have a bunch of teacher friends, and they always insist that one of the gifts teachers like best are gift cards. I’ve always made pocket gift cards, but thought this might be different and fun. The card kind of hands the gift card out LOL!
The card is made from the yellow cardstock and the pop-up is made from the green.
Here is the template for the pop-up. I did not make this template, it is from the Paper Craft Connections blog. For my pop-up, I cut the paper 5.5″ wide and 6″ tall and scored and folded it as shown (their template is 6″ by 6″).
I added a small amount of adhesive to the ends of the card holder valley to help keep the pop-up tight.
To install the pop-up, apply adhesive to the bottom (1.5″) section and adhere it to the card base right along the fold.
Then press the pop-up flat (like it would be with the card closed. Apply adhesive to the back flap and press the card closed. This will help position the pop-up.
To complete the card, I stamped Gwendaline and Bobby and colored them with Copics. Here are the Copic colors:
I cut out Bobby to put him inside (just cause he’s cute!)
I created the strip on the front by punching both sides with the Apron Lace Border punch and adding a paper strip from the paper kit.
Here are all my card pieces:
This was fun, and pretty easy. Maybe you want to try one too…
