Tuesday Tutorial: The World's Easiest Gift Card Holder

You know I like to show you all the quick and easy stuff and today's tutorial is no different!  This is a gift card holder that is so fast and easy that you can make it in minutes.

Here is what you'll need:

One Envelope (I used the invitation size)
Stamps or Digistamps
Cardstock and Designer Paper (Optional)
Adhesive
Ribbon

Step 1:
Fold your envelope in half, with the flap to the inside of the fold.


Step 2:
Cut the flap along the score mark, so that the flap is now in two parts.


Step 3:
Lick (or use adhesive) to adhere the left portion of the flap down to the envelope.  Cut and remove the right portion of the flap.


Step 4:
Add ribbon for use as a closure if desired.  Stamp and add embellishments to finish!


Easy peasy, right?
My project features one of our new Geishas, Miyako Tea.
