Top Note Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Hello, stampers! I have a tutorial for you today! A Top Note Gift Card Holder!

This is how the gift card will look like when it is done.

You'll need a 4 1/4" x 9 1/2" piece of cardstock. I use Real Red CS.

Score at 4 3/4" on the 9 1/2" side.

Fold on the score line and put it on the Top Note die just below the dotted line on the Top Note die. Run it through the Big Shot.

This is what it will look like after it is cut with the Big Shot and open up.

Line the folded line on the 3 1/2" line and cut the end off as shown above. The cut part will be the front of the gift card holder.

Sponge the edges in Chocolate Chip ink.

I sponge the back piece too.

Using a slit punch, line it up the middle at the top of the back piece, put it in as far as possible of the gift card holder and punch.

This is how it looks like after it is punched. This is where you will slip the gift card and the front of the holder through.

Use a jumbo brad to mark a placement to punch the hole. Mark it just above the punched slit.

Punch a hole using the biggest hole on the Crop-a-dile.

Use the Crop-a-dile to set the jumbo eyelet.

Put a ribbon through the brad. Decorate the front of the gift card.

Inside of the gift card holder.

This is how it look like when open.

It will be nice to hang these tags on a Christmas tree.

Hope you enjoy my tutorial. If you have any questions about the tutorial you can leave a comment here or email me at

Happy Stamping!

To make your gift card a personal and unique gift, choose gift card packaging that is more like a traditional present. This will not give away the surprise before it is opened.
