Add a personal touch to a gift card holder. Materials Gift card template up-cycle-envelope Paper to re-use (some ideas might include your child’s artwork, a map, a magazine page, wrapping paper) Scissors Pencils Glue stick Bone folder (optional) Craft Knife/ self-healing mat (or cutting board) OR stickers to close the envelope. Directions Print and cut out the provided envelope template. Decide on a type of paper that you want to use for your envelope. Put it good side facing down. Trace around the template onto your chosen paper. Cut out the template. If you would like your envelope to have a different coloured interior, we suggest gluing them together first. Put the envelope on a self healing mat (or cutting board) and have an adult cut the slit that we marked with craft knife for you to tuck your top envelope corner into OR seal your envelope with a sicker once it is complete and you have filled it. Fold your envelope. You can use a bone folder to make the lines sharp. Glue the edges. Insert your gift card or small gift and tuck the top corner into the slit. Purpose Re-purposing materials, fine motor skills (cutting, pasting, folding etc.) Safety Notes Use scissors with care. Have an adult use the craft knife as they can be quite sharp. We recommend that you use a self- healing mat or a cutting board as craft knives can damage surfaces such as kitchen tables!
