Hanging Gift Card Holder made by Cricut
Cricut Holly Gift Card Holder

Cricut Holly Gift Card Holder Requirements:

- You can use any Light Card Stock for the envelope part, I like the textured kind of paper.

- Poster card stock for the inside pull-out tab, it needs to be thicker than the outside envelope.

- Scoring Tool (sold separately from Cricut machine).

- Glue (hot glue recommended for fast drying time).

My winter holiday themed designs are more popular this time of year so I made a hanging gift card with a holly design this time! I wanted a deep green for the envelop but didn't have one on hand so I used this light colored one instead. For the inside insert, I used a shiny red card stock. I've found that having the sparkly or shiny parts of the design inside the envelope looks better to me. But the beauty of crafting is that you can really do anything you want! The red and green makes the design festive! I'm thinking about this holly design onto one of my matchbox designs, what do you think? Is that something you would want to use?


Below is a picture of how the insert can easily be pulled out for quick access to the gift card. This picture is from one of my other designs but the gift card can be accessed the same way. If you like, you can write "pull" on the top flap so people will know to pull it out.


The snowflake gift card design allows for easy access by pulling it out.
Gift card pulls out of the envelope.


Tips:

- Use a hot glue gun to put together this fast. I hear craft glue is good, too.

- Remember to use light card stock for the envelope part.

- Remember to use poster card stock for the pull out part - this helps keep it's shape.

- Fold inwards on the scored side to make a clean fold.

- Fold the bottom of the envelop part on the OUTSIDE. This will make sliding the pull-out part easy in and out.

- Remember when cutting to switch the card stock selection when you make the inside versus the outside so the Cricut machine will know the proper pressure to cut the different cardstock thicknesses.
