How to Fold A Gift Card Holder

With a few simple folds you can create your own gift card holder. Just use any 6 x 6 inch square of any paper, and you can create a hand made card holder. Use this for special occasions, birthdays, and holiday gift giving. Choosing which paper to use is the most difficult step in this do it yourself card holder.     

The supplies you will need:

  • 6 x 6 paper of your choice
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • glue dot (optional)       

Use the ruler to measure a 6 x 6 square. Then cut out the square with the scissors.

Fold the square in half, lengthwise. Make your crease.

Open your square and fold one tip up to the folded crease. Make your crease.

With the tip touching the fold, bring the fold above the creased line. Make a crease.

This resembles a pyramid. Fold pointed edges to meet and overlap in the middle of the card. Make your creases.

Fold the top tip back. This is the beginning step to create the flap to keep the card closed.

I placed a glue dot just under this step to keep the folds together.

Bring the small flap up and press down on the center creating a triangle. This resembles a baby bird mouth waiting for food.

Fold down the triangle. Insert the tip of the triangle in to the folded flap. Crease the top flap down.

Insert the gift card and you have a perfectly folded gift card holder.

What would be a favorite gift card for you to receive?
