This is the gift card holder I made to hold one of the gift cards I'm giving my son for Christmas. It was super easy to do and I used the Cricut Close to my Heart Artiste Cartridge. I cut the card base at 4.9 inches on my gypsy. If you don't have a gypsy you can cut it at 5 inches and that would be fine. This one uses the entire length of an 11 inch piece of paper, so if you go up to 5 inches, I would say you would need to use a 12 inch piece. Let me know what you think.
I give you all the measurements on the video encase you are interested in making one like this.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
