Secret Slot Gift Card Holder: How Sweet It Is with the Pretty Label Punch

Lurking inside this card is a secret… a special slot fold that creates a pocket for a gift card! This technique is actually really simple. You just need to score your cardstock, punch on the center score line, then fold the front and back so that the ‘pocket’ stays in the middle.

Fun, right? Plus the candy theme with the Sweetest Thing stamp set and the matching How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper – everything is fun with candy. And candy colors.

How to Make a Gift Card Punch Pocket:

  1. Cut card base, then score at the center.
  2. Score again at the same distance from the center line, to both the left and right of center. (I used 3/4″ for this Stamps in the Mail Club card.)
  3. Punch on the folded center score line.
  4. Apply strong adhesive such as Tear N Tape to the sides of the hole between the score lines.
  5. Fold in zig-zag pattern so that card holder pocket is inside the card.

Here’s a little visual help:

Plus the front is stinkin cute. I love these candy jars and how simple it is to cut them out of the paper with the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies!

Not hard at all, but see the video for the step-by-step walkthrough on how to make this simple gift card holder design. Plus there are two little hiccups with my adhesive…one that I caught and one where I had to add editorial commentary via pop-up text – ha!
