Honey bee Christmas gift card holders

Disclaimer: I made these gift card holders for book token gift cards I gave to my nieces at Christmas, but I have only had the time to blog about them now… Also, sorry the only photo I took was on my mobile phone so the quality isn’t great!

I die cut the dies from Neenah classic crest card except the ‘wrap’ that I die cut from Neenah Desert Storm card. I smooshed my VersaMark ink pad all over the circle and ‘lid’ shapes and covered them in Persian Sea Aurora Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder so they would be all frosty and shimmery. I positioned the main die cut in my stamp platform and stamped the bit that would appear as the ‘front’ of the finished gift card holder with my IndigoBlu ‘Snowflakes’ in VersaMark ink and embossed them with the same Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder.

I felt like I needed a symbol for the wrap, so I rooted about in my stash and found my MFT ‘Let it Snowflake too’ dienamics and one of the snowflakes fitted in the circle PERFECTLY – it was meant to be! So I die cut that snowflake from Neenah classic crest and adhered it with some liquid adhesive to the blue circle to finish off the wraps.

Next I folded and burnished all the score lines and adhered the ‘lids’ to the main body of the card, glued the tab on the ‘wraps’ conveyor belt style and adhered the circles to the ‘wraps’.

I pierced two holes at the crease where the top of the card would be and threaded some blue and silver bakers twine I bought from Hobbycraft through so the gift card holders could be hung on the tree as ornaments.

I was a little worried that the gift cards might fall out so I adhered them with glue dots inside the gift card holders just to be safe.


I love the Honey Bee coffee gift card holder because it’s so original – how do you like to give gift cards?
