Supplies Needed to make a DIY Gift Card Holder

How to Make a DIY Gift Card Holder

Step 1 – Ungroup Your Layers in Cricut Design Space

Upload the free gift card holder SVG to Cricut Design Space. If needed, this tutorial will show you how to upload files to Cricut Design Space. Before editing the design, you will need to ungroup the layers. To do this, click on the top layer (which will select all layers) and then select “ungroup”.

Step 2 – Change to “Score Lines”

This gift card holder SVG is already sized correctly, but there are a few tweaks to make so that your cut and score lines work correctly. Select your score layers (above the red shape and above your bow). You can select these together by holding down shift. Then go to the drop-down menu and select “Score”.

Step 3 – Attach the Score Lines

Next, you will attach your score lines to the box piece by selecting both layers and then “attach” Do this for the bow layers as well.

Step 4 – Attach Cut Lines

Attach your cut lines (to hold the gift card in place) to your shape. Select both layers and “attach” to do this.

Your gift card holder is now ready to make! Click Make It in the upper right of your screen. In the mat preview screen, you’ll see all the mats for your project. Your score and cut lines should be placed in the correct location. If they are not on top of their design, you will need to go back and attach them together. Then, click Continue to cut.

Step 5 – Cut Your Gift Card Holder Template

You will prepare your Cricut mats as shown in the mat preview screen. Make sure that you have inserted your Scoring Stylus or Scoring Wheel before you begin to cut your project. I am using this Scoring Sylus in this tutorial. Then, cut all of your cardstock for your project.

**Note – If you are using one sided paper, place the decorative side of the paper face down on the mats with your scoring lines.

Assemble Your Gift Card Holder

Once all the pieces are cut, you can assemble your gift card holder. Fold on each of your score lines. Then, add glue to your tabs to create your envelope.

Glue your decorative pieces to each side of your gift card holder, then slide your gift card in the slot. You can also use tape or glue dots to adhere your gift card to the holder. The decorative pieces are optional. If you have a fun paper design, you may not even want the decorative pieces. Just hide the layers in Cricut Design Space if you don’t want to use these. As you can see, it looks great both ways.

Once assembled, just add your bow! Fold your bow in half and glue the ribbons together so they fit around your gift card holder. You do not want to glue your bow to the gift card holder itself. This should be able to easily slide on and off.
