How to Make an EASY Pop Up Christmas Gift Card Holder

It’s Christmas Eve and your doorbell rings. You look through the peep hole and your neighbor is standing there with a brightly colored package. OH NO! You didn’t buy THEM anything! What do you do?

Don’t worry, I have the answer! Invite them in and graciously accept their gift. Then, excuse yourself, go into the kitchen and grab one of the adorable pop up Christmas gift card holders below (you’ve already put in a gift card to a local business) and present it to them. Easy…peasy…done! Ready to see the project?

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, cut at 5″ on the long side, which creates 2 pieces:

  • with smaller piece (4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″) score at 1 1/4″ on the short side
