Instructions to Make DIY Gift Card Envelopes

These DIY Gift Card Envelopes are so quick and easy to make. In just a few steps you can have a beautiful gift card envelope perfect for any occasion!

Step One: Cut the Paper

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.

Step Two: Fold

Now, fold the two corners into the center. It’s okay if they overlap a bit.

Then, 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.

Step Three: Secure

Secure the flaps together with either glue, hot glue, or tape.

Step Four: Embellish

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.

Step Five: Add the Gift Card

Now all that’s left is to tuck the gift card into 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!
