DIY Christmas Gift Card Envelopes

Create handmade gift card envelopes this holiday season in under 5 minutes with the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board.

DIY Christmas gift card envelopesHey crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Did you brave the crowds on Black Friday? I surprisingly didn’t make it out. My husband went out early Friday morning and picked up everything on our list and was home before I woke up. Gotta love that guy! I’ve been battling a little bit of a cold this past week and going out in the crowds was the last thing I wanted to do. Thankfully the hubs picked up what I needed and my shopping is 75% done. The majority of the items on my list left will be gift cards along with a few handmade gifts.

Remember the DIY envelope tutorial I shared earlier this year? Well I used my We R Memory Keepers envelope board to create Christmas gift card envelopes. These take minutes to makes, that’s with a little embellishments added. I have to say this punch board has become one of my favorite tools this year! I use it to make gift card envelopes quite often and even the occasional birthday card envelope.

To make the envelopes I used the punch board, 5×5 inch paper, and a sticky thumb adhesive runner.

Envelope Punch BoardI trimmed my paper and aligned it to 2inches by following the measurements on the punch board.

Handmade EnvelopesI like to trim the center flap of my envelopes like the one on the left. It makes it easier to slip a gift card in and I think it looks cleaner. :)

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful tutorial. I have this tool and love it. I know who ever wins it will enjoy using it. My favorite thing about this tool is when you make a card you know you will have an envelope to fit.
