Aren’t these gift card holders so beautiful? In just a few easy steps you can create these fun holders that will give your gift a special touch. I used the *new* deluxe Cricut paper that is now available on I’ve linked to the paper I used in the materials list down below. This paper makes the gift card holders so pretty!

Please note, this project requires a scoring stylus. If you don’t have one you can buy one —–> HERE. It is super easy to insert your stylus. I’ve included the steps below. It takes only a few seconds.

Materials Needed:

Cricut Explore Air 2
Cricut Deluxe Scrapbook Paper
Scoring Stylus
Light Grip Cutting Mat

First of all you will need to open up Design Space. Go to Insert Images and in the top right hand corner search “gift card”. You should see the gift card image I used a little ways down.


  1. Cut out all of your pieces (make sure your scoring stylus is inserted in your machine). You should have a large outer card piece, an inner card holder piece and 4 decorative pieces.
  2. Carefully bend the large outer card piece and the inner card holder piece where they are scored. There are 3 tabs on the inner card piece which you will bend inwards and one tab on the other side that you will bend outwards.
  3. Carefully glue the inner card holder piece together  by applying glue on the 3 tabs and pressing together.
  4. Glue the inner card holder piece to the large card piece using the tab that was bent outwards in the previous step. You want to glue it right where the score line is in the middle.

  1. I have a new Cricut Explorer Air 2 and am trying to figure it out. I just made this card holder, and it turned out great, but it is too small for a gift card. Do the dimensions need to be changed?
    Thank you for the great instructions?

    1. Hi Mariyln! I didn’t change the dimensions when I made these and they fit the gift cards I had, which I think are the standard size. If you needed it to be a little bigger you could always select everything and slightly enlarge it.
