1

Mark the lines for the gift card holder on the back of a piece of green cardstock using the template as a guide.

2

Use a scoring tool such as a small embossing ball tool to score the fold lines then cut out the gift card holder.

3

Cut an approximately 3mm-wide slit in the centre line of the gift card holder using a craft knife, leaving at least 2cm uncut at either end of the line.

4

Fold the gift card holder along the centre line and use a circle punch to punch a semicircle from the centre of the fold.

5

Concertina-fold the gift card holder and adhere the bottom edges of the centre panels together, making sure you leave room for the gift card to sit in the slot.

6

Add twine and a stamped sentiment to the central panel, then add layers of cardstock with holly leaves cut from watercoloured cardstock and painted. Add buttons to the holly leaves to finish.
