How to make the easiest gift card holders

Hey there!

I have been away for a while, seriously focusing on expanding my small business. I have been posting ads online, networking, handling orders and doing loads and loads of discount vouchers for people attending the meetups throughout the country. Hectic eh?

And when I am doing nothing of that, I am writing blog posts (like this one!) and creating more awesome products and making them more and more professional looking.

So, today I am sharing with you, one of the simplest designs I had to whip up in a day for a meetup happening this weekend. I was really stretched for time and I had to get them out or they would have never made it to the meetup.

The base is ready. All you have to do now is to decorate them just the way you like them. I used all my scrap punches and die cuts to decorate thirty of these. Here are a few…
