Gift Card bag

A fun thing I made for Christmas was a bag for a Gift Card!  I just can't seem to wrap my head around paying for a box to hold a gift card when I can make one from a simple envelope! So here are the easy steps.

I use the envelopes that you find in the stationary section of Wally World or the Office supply store (approx 4 3/8" x 5 3/4").  They usually come in a box anywhere from 50 to 250.
First moisten the flap and seal the envelope. Then fold down the edges on three sides to fit the gift card.

Trim the top portion using decorative scissors.
Open the envelope and make little tabs on the bottom.

I use double sided tape to stick the tabs down on the underside.
Your Gift Card is ready to slip inside. 

  Punch two small holes and thread some ribbon to make a handle.

You can stamp any kind of greeting on the outside for the appropriate gift. 

It even looks great to hang on your Christmas tree!
