Im always on the lookout for creative ways to package up gifts you can find all my DIY Gift Boxes here so you can imagine how excited I was to learn that a simple origami business card holder can also be used to make a cute gift card or money envelope. After all the other fancy wrapping, ribbons and bows that go into this time of year a standard plain envelope can be somewhat disappointing. Decorative Paper or Gift Wrap. A Paper Trimmer or a Pair of Scissors. A Bone Folder. Wooden Gift Tags. Look for double-sided decorative paper if you want the envelope to be pretty on the inside as well as the outside. I used some light-weight double-sided patterned paper but any good quality gift wrap will also work. I did try using scrapbook paper but found it was a bit too thick and curved up at the edges when I wrapped the string around. Plus you get to match your gift cards to any other gifts which always looks good under the tree. By running a bone folder along all the folds you will create nice, sharp creases meaning the paper will sit flat and help your finished gift card holder look more professional. This project is part of my Easy Origami eBook. You can find it in the shop. Cut your paper to size. For a standard gift card, I recommend a 9 x 9-inch square. Flip your paper over making sure the pattern is still running left to right. Make sure to run your bone folder along all the creases as you go. Fold the left and right edges in to meet the centre fold. Open the paper out again and fold the four corners in to meet the nearest crease. Fold the left and right flaps in to meet in the centre. Flip the paper over and fold the bottom up so the diagonal edges meet at the fold. You should be able to see a triangle in the middle of your fold. Fold the top down in the exact same way and tuck it inside the bottom edge. You want them to overlap slightly as you do this. Now is a good time to run a bone folder or the back of a butter knife along your folds. Sharp creases will help all the sides sit flat. Slide a gift card into the side pocket to make sure it fits and fold in half. There should be plenty of space on either side to remove your gift card. Fold in half and crease. Make them as decorative and elaborate as you like. Here youll find origami, papercrafts, air dry clay projects as well as the odd crochet or weaving tutorials. Lets Get Crafty! Hi, Im Emma.
