How to make an origami card holder

If you are a gift card fanatic; and you believe (as I do) in the value of gifting someone with one in effort to give them the chance to choose their own gift - then this video is for you.

In it, you will learn how to create an Origami Card Holder.

Its a great way to use some of that great Scrapbooking Paper that you just can not seem to incorporate into a layout. And it's also a great way to put some time, thought and even love into that gift because you do want to show the recipient how much you care about them!

Then if you use your imagination and a little more of your scrapbooking supplies, you can adhere (with a removable glue dot) that card holder to the inside of a well thought out - straight from the heart - hand made card and...

VOILA...you have 3 gifts in one
(the beautiful card, the card holder and of course the gift card).

What a great way to make something personal and unique out of something that can sometimes be perceived as "thoughtless" as a gift.

Happy Scrapping!

P.S. You can also use this card holder as an envelope for your childs school photos! And you can put 3 or more on your scrapbook page for decor! And if you are really gung ho about these, you might even find it fun to take those McDonalds Gift Certificates that you give away for Halloween, and turn them into wallets (or insert them into wallets).

See....wasn't your visit to this blog so much better than just watching the video by itself!
