It’s no surprise that I love making gift card holders with my Cricut. But I needed one for a teenage girl and wanted something fun and girly. So, I created this fun butterfly gift card holder.
Out of all the gift card holders that I have made so far, this is the quickest and easiest to put together. And you only need 1 sheet of paper. So, let’s get started!
How to Make a Butterfly Gift Card Holder with Your Cricut:
To make this gift card holder, you will need:
- Medium or Heavy Weight Cardstock in your color choices – I recommend this glitter cardstock or this textured cardstock.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat.
- Scoring Stylus (which is what I will be using in this tutorial) or Scoring Wheel (Maker only). If your cutting machine doesn’t have the scoring feature, this scoring board and stylus is great to use.

Upload Butterfly Template & Add Score Lines
Upload the butterfly gift card holder SVG to Cricut Design Space. If needed, this tutorial will show you how to upload files to Cricut Design Space.
Before cutting your gift card holder, you will need to add your score lines. Click on the layer for the black box and then change your operation from “basic cut” to “score”.
Note: If you are not using a scoring wheel or stylus, then delete the square layer.
Next, select both of your layers together by holding down shift. Select “attach” to attach your score lines to your gift card layer.
Cut & Assemble Your Gift Card Holder
You are now ready to cut your project. Click on “Make It.” You should see your score lines on top of your gift card template as shown in the picture below. If you do not, then go back and make sure you have attached your score lines to the gift card layer.
Follow the prompts on your computer to cut your butterfly gift card holders. If you are using your scoring tool, then make sure to insert this first.
Once you remove your cardstock from the mat, you can begin to assemble your gift card holder. Start by folding on all 4 of the score lines, folding the pieces inward. Then slide your gift card into the cut out slots.
Fold over the 2 tabs and close the gift card holder together by attaching the butterfly wings together. Make sure to line up where the cut outs are on the butterfly to line these up properly.
And that’s all there is to it! You can easily open and close the gift card holder with the butterfly wings. This also looks really good with glitter cardstock.
This butterfly gift card holder is so simple to put together. And you can cut 3 of these on a single sheet of 12×12 cardstock. If you enjoyed making this gift card holder, then you’ll love these Cricut gift card holder designs as well.
