It used to be that giving a gift card as a gift was frowned upon, with reasons ranging being a lazy gift-giver to the fact that gift cards were considered too impersonal. Now, things have changed! These days, there are so many reasons why gift cards make great gifts!

How to Make DIY Gift Card Presentation Envelopes
Supplies Needed to Make DIY Gift Card Envelope
- 8 by 8 piece of scrapbook paper
- glue, hot glue, or tape
- double-sided tape (to seal finished envelope once the gift card is inside)
- embellishments like paper flowers, nylon butterflies, stickers, etc
Instructions to Make DIY Gift Card Envelope
You will need to begin with an 8×8 or a 6×6 piece of scrapbook paper. I used a paper cutter to cut a piece of 12 by 12 down to 8 by 8. Place the paper on a flat surface turned to where it looks like a diamond.
Now, fold the two corners into the center. It’s okay if they overlap a bit.
Next, fold the bottom flap up about a quarter inch (1/4 inch) from the bottom. This is so it will have a little bit of overlap with the two middle flaps. Secure the flaps together with either glue, hot glue or tape.
Once the glue has dried, flip the gift card envelope over, and add your chosen embellishments. I decided to use a small paper flower I made with my Cricut Cuttlebug.
Now all that’s left is to tuck the gift card in the envelope and fold over the final flap. I usually use a piece of double-sided tape to seal my gift card envelopes it works perfectly!
And there you have it, a simple, yet adorable gift card envelope. I love these envelopes because they add a cute little personal touch when you give a gift card as a gift. With graduation, end-of-school teacher gifts, Father’s Day or any other special occasion that calls for a gift, these simple DIY gift card envelopes are just what you need!
