A Quick Folded No Measuring Gift Card Holder

A Quick Folded No Measuring Gift Card Holder using a colorful download by Carolyn Dube

Have you seen the incredible ways to wrap gifts on Pinterest?  The kind that take hours to wrap and the gift looks like a piece of holiday decor, not something you rip open?  This video isn’t like that, after all, I’m giving a gift card.  But I want it to be fun, have a personal touch to it but not take hours or involve using a ruler. What did I use?  My free downloadable printable, a Spark of Art-spiration.

This is made using one of the free Sparks of Art-spiration downloads from my newsletter.  Each week, there’s a new one and Missy shared in the Facebook group that she saves hers on her computer at work so that she always has something fun for wrapping a gift card.

Watch A Quick Folded No Measuring Gift Card Holder on YouTube.

Get the exact Spark that I used in the video sent you your inbox here.  This will also get you signed up for newsletter, if you already aren’t, so you’ll be getting new Sparks each and every week!

      Merry Christmas to you too Donna. Due to server space, most Sparks are only up for a limited time… but if you go to https://acolorfuljourney.com/category/spark-of-artspiration/ you will see a list of all the posts that have used them. Any of the ones listed from 2017 you can still get sent to your inbox, you’ll just need to go to each post and put your email in.

    A+dorable! And easy. I would have spent umpteen hours searching for *the* perfect gift card holder to make, and would have spent much more time. And that’s fine when I have the time or inclination – I’ve made some that pop up and sing and do dishes. (Well not the last two.) But sometimes I time is a rare commodity, and your holder is so pretty and personal. So thank you! And some of my old gelli prints thank you, cut into that size. Oh, and thank you for the printables. That had not been on my radar!

      You are so very welcome Beth! And yes, it works so easily with any square piece of art play!And if you can make anything do dishes, let me know because I detest doing that!

    This is Great! We do a lot of gift card gifts for friends and family all year long so this tutorial and freebie will go a long way! Thank you so much! Happy Holidays! <3

    I recognize the snippet from your spark. Pinterest is like Martha Stewart on steroids eye candy. I do like finding recipes though…..xox

    I love this!! I coulda used this earlier cuz I needed one for a son’s birthday plus I bought some metal ones for Christmas – cute BUT took up too much room and weighed too much when being mailed to 3 sons and families around the US! I searched and the ones I found were too darn complex so I made my own with measurements and a flap. But I love this so will make some with your spark of artspiration ??
