A Thrifty gift idea

Spread the love

I make these little gift card sets all the time, for thank you gifts.  Yesterday was the last day of  school for my son, so I needed a few thank you gifts for the school staff.  These are quick and easy, and the best part is you can make them for less than a dollar.

You will need:

  • 1 sheet colored card stock from the card holder
  • 2 sheets or white card stock cut in half  ( 8 1/2 x 5 1/2) to make 4 cards
  • scrapbook paper ( I just use scraps from other projects)
  • glue or adhesive
  • 22 inches or ribbon
  • paper cuter or pair of scissors

Take your colored sheet of card stock and fold it in half, to make a  ( 8 1/2 x 5 1/2) Then open it up and fold the bottom part up 2 inches. Then on the middle fold cut up to the 2 inch mark.  See photo above.  The flaps will fold in and become the pockets for the card to set in.  I only glue the outer edges shut and leave the middle edge open.

Take your 2 sheets of white card stock cut in half, fold them in half to make a  4 x 5 1/2 note card.  Decorate the fronts, I normally use the scraps from another project or scrapbook page,  You can make them as simple or detailed as you want.

Once you are done tuck the 4 cards and envelopes inside the pocket and tie shut with the ribbon.
