Here are the projects that I have made for our hop today…

We all know people who are really difficult to buy for and often feel guilty when resorting to giving gift cards. But when the packaging is this good you don’t need to feel bad! These cute little gift card envelopes are really quick and easy to make, using a single 6×6″ piece of DSP.

Let’s make it…

The first thing to say is be careful if your DSP has a pattern in which the orientation is important!

Start by trimming 3/4″ from the side of your DSP sheet to create the ‘belly band’. Along the remaining 5&1/4″ edge, score at 3/4″ and 4&1/2″. Turn the DSP and score at 1&1/4″ and 3&3/4″ along the 6″ edge. The smaller section will become your top envelope flap so, again, be careful with the orientation.

Fold and burnish all of your score lines. Cut along your score lines to the intersections so you remove the four corner rectangles. You can then create tabs as shown in the image below and round the corners (if desired).

Adhere strips of Tear & Tape to the small tabs and fold up the larger section to create your envelope. Fold the ‘belly band’ around your finished envelop to get the desired fold lines, remove and adhere. Then slip the ‘belly band’ over the envelope so that the join is at the back.

It’s as simple as that! But, you can of course embellish them to your heart’s content (particularly if your DSP is not as stunning as the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Plaid or Feels Like Frost)!
