Itty Bitty Christmas - Pop-Up Gift Card Holder - Video Tutorial

Today's Video will show you how I created these Gift Card Holders.

They are super simple and quick to make :o)

I used paper from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper pack for this first one. The ribbon is our In Colour Scalloped Linen ribbon in Pretty Peacock. I don't like creating bows with this one as it's one-sided, so created a knot.

The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. This set just contains sentiments and is so useful!

The Very Vanilla mat inside the holder is for you to write a message. I used one of the dies from the Celebration Labels set. You could use any die shape for this mat, or just cut a rectangle.

I used Pretty Peacock card for the base.

The Gift Card 'pops up' when you open the Holder.

This is the Gift Card Holder I created in the Video. I used Garden Green for the base this time.

The gorgeous paper is from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack. 

I used some of our retired Stitched Satin ribbon in Real Red. This is now retired but you could use any contrasting ribbon you have.

Here is the Video ...


Note: Either follow the Imperial measurements (inches) or the Metric measurements (cms) – Don’t mix them.



Garden Green                                          25.8cm x 10.2cm                  (10” x 4”)


With the LONG side across the TOP, score down at:


4cm, 12cm, 15cm and 18cm              (1½”, 4⅝”, 5¾” and 6”)



Poinsettia Place DSP (x4)                         9.8cm x 7.5cm    (3” x 3”)

Poinsettia Place DSP (x2)                         9.8cm x 3.6cm    (3” x 1⅜”)


Ribbon approx.                                        60cm                           (24”)



You will need extra Very Vanilla and Real Red card to complete the project.

NOTE: Try the DSP mats in position before adding glue - you may need to trim them slightly.
