Gift cards are very popular these days but the holders that come with the cards are not especially attractive.

I made a few gift card holders that are more aesthetically pleasing AND indicate that some thought and care were put into the gift.

There are lots of different gift card holders on Pinterest etc. but I liked these because the gift card “pops up” on the inside.

I didn’t have a gift card handy so I used a Silhouette download card – they’re the same size as a gift card.

These are a little bit time-consuming but come together pretty quickly once you cut all the pieces and get to the assembly stage.  I think they’re cute!
