Quick Gift Card Ideas!

Hi friends! Are you in need of some quick gift card ideas? I have one for you! I’m going to be using the Honey Bee Stamps Seed Packet die to create a little envelope for a gift card.


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

So I have two brothers (and a sister) but the one brother has a birthday around Thanksgiving and the other has a birthday around Christmas. For years, I’ve been buying them lottery tickets for their birthday (of course I tell them if they win they have to share lol). We are heading out this weekend to celebrate Christmas with my family and I needed a quick holder for the lottery tickets.

The Seed Packet die was a perfect solution!

I’m throwing on a rustic feel by die cutting the Seed Packet from Paper Bag cardstock.

Then I’m going to stamp the Holly Jolly Background in Embossing ink onto my cardstock for a tone-on-tone look.

I adhered my pocket together using red line tape and then ink blended the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I’m also going to do a direct to paper technique with the ink pad around the edges.

I’m going to keep the front really clean and simple. I die cut the small tree from the Pine Trees set fro white cardstock and add to the front of the pocket with liquid glue. Really either side of the pocket would work.

Next, I’m heat embossing a sentiment from the Holiday Wreath using Gilded Embossing Powder and Palm cardstock.

This seed packet was just so perfect! I don’t have the lottery tickets yet but I know they’ll fit.

I tested out the pocket with a check card (since I don’t have any gift cards on hand) and that fit as well. It slides right on in!

Here’s a look at the flip side of the pocket. An idea just hit me while typing up this post, to seal the pocket closed with a wax seal.

This is such a quick and easy way to create gift card pockets and even though I did it with a Winter theme – you could make it rainbow and colorful.
