Watch Us Wednesday with Kim Duran: Fall Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Hi everyone! It's Kim here to share with you a quick and easy tutorial for creating a fall-themed gift card holder for our Watch Us Wednesday feature at The Kraft Journal!

Gift cards are the perfect way to "give thanks" and show your appreciation to someone. Using products from The Kraft Outlet makes it so easy!

Start by gathering your supplies: some Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock, a paper doily, Brown Kraft Baker's TwineVenice Gaffer Tape, leaves, some buttons, and a Small Glassine Bag.

Place your gift card inside the Glassine Bag and fold down just over the top of the gift card. Place a strip of Gaffer Tape starting at the seam of the fold, down to the bottom of the Glassine Bag. Trim your paper doily in half, then apply a thin coat of Glimmer Mist to turn the white paper doily into a pretty orange color. Blot with a towel to dry, then affix to the folded seam of the bag. Trim off the excess.

Oh! And by the way! I just love the size of these Glassine Bags - they are the perfect size for gift cards!

Wrap a layer of baker's twine around the Glassine Bag to hold it all in place. Use a scalloped border punch to cut out a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. Gather your favorite leaf and a pretty button.

Ink the edges of the scalloped circle. I used a hint of orange, mixed with brown distress ink. I love the fiery glow it has! Affix the scalloped circle to the top of the Glassine Bag, followed by the leaf, then button. 

Next, stamp your sentiment onto the Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and trim around the edges of the letters. Adhere the sentiment to the leaf using dimensional foam tape for a little pop.  

And that's it! A super quick way to "give thanks" and show your appreciation with a little gift!
