But what makes it worth downloading and printing is that Printable Crush suggests folding the card in half, making a cut to the front of the card, sealing the edges and then tucking the gift card into the slit. The gift card will fit snugly into the pocket if you do exactly as she did. I like the additional suggestion of adding confetti to the card so you get a little surprise when the gift card is removed. There are two ways to make this circle flap gift card holder. The first way is to cut out four circles, fold each one in half, tape them together perfectly and then fold the tops over to create the envelope. The second way to make a circle flap envelop is to download this template, trace around the lines and cut the card out. To me, the second way is much easier.

Of course, these gift card sleeves can be used all year round if you download the design and trace around it onto card stock for your upcoming occasion. This gift card holder takes a little time to study. Not too tricky, though. Basic origami skills should be all you need to get the gift card placed correctly. What I like the most about the gift card holder is the banner that goes across the folded envelope. This gift card envelope comes with a true template that you can download and trace onto any scrapbook paper or cardstock paper you want. Add stamps, embellishments and other accessories to craft it up as cute as can be. This one is designed a little differently than the others, however, for two reasonsthe first is that the gift card is tucked into the latte sleeve rather than hidden inside of the card and the second is that you can print this design on a large sheet of paper.
