The 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

We have a real treat today from we will be making an adorable pop up gift card holder!

Here is the

Supply List-
Cardstock (
Patterned Paper
Glue dots
Bone folder or scoring blade

First cut your CS to 4" X 7" and score at 3.5"

Cut your pp to 4.5" X 8" and score at 3.75"

Next cut two slits in your folded CS at 1.5" and 2.5", about 3/8" deep

Fold the flap over both sides to make a good crease, and then open up the CS and "pop out" the part you cut out.

Adhere the CS to the inside of the pp. I find it easiest to adhere one side and then fold the card shut to make sure it will fit correctly.

Add your gift card to the flap using a glue dot... the gift card will "pop" out when you open the holder!

I think you'll agree with me that this is an adorable project! Do let Jess know what you think too in our comments section!
