Handmade Holidays: Coin Envelopes


I give lots of gift cards during the holidays…they are a great way to say thank you to teachers, bus drivers, etc, and they make great gifts for those hard-to-buy-for teens on your list.  You can never go wrong with a gift card, especially when they’re wrapped up extra special.  For today’s handmade holiday project I created some simple cards and coin envelopes for my gift cards this year.  They’re quick and easy and you can whip up a stack of them in no time!


To make these fun coin envelopes you will want to grab your trimmer and scoring board!  After you get the hang of it you will be making these all the time!  I loved how easy it was to add my sentiments using the Snow Village Stamp set! I used different ink colors to make each one unique.


To create the gift card holder I just grabbed some cream cardstock and embellished away using the 3D Chipboard shapes, the chipboard stickers from the Kre8v-Kit and lots and lots of stamps!  For more details be sure to grab the project sheet below.

  • Pamela

    There won’t be much under the tree this year since my daughter wrecked the car except repair bills. If I could have a gift card it would be to your store. Just glad everyone is okay. Wishing for peace in the world.

  • Gail L.

    Another great package to win!

    I don’t get too many gift cards, my kids are still young enough to enjoy the toys. I do usually get teachers GCs for Staples, or Chapters. This year they are getting Micheal’s GCs.

  • Monica Coffman
    December 10, 2013 - 10:47 am

    Love the cards…love the stamps…love this collection! Hopefully someone I know will have a scrappy gift card under the tree. And then we’ll probably have itunes, starbucks, maybe a clothing store or two. Thanks for the chance to win!

    December 10, 2013 - 10:55 am

    At the present time I only plan on 1 gift card for my daughter-in-love. She adores Ross and that is where she loves to shop. May end up getting her mom and dad a gift card to a restaurant, cause I can never figure out what to do for her dad.

  • Jen Leighton
    December 10, 2013 - 11:04 am

    The gift cards under our tree…..liquor store….and hopefully a Michael’s one for mommy!

    Love these stamps — will be using them to make some awesome teacher cards! I’ve got a bunch of Zappos cards to give away this year- shoes, baby!!!

  • Melissa Carlin
    December 10, 2013 - 11:16 am

    This one is an easy one for me!! You can bet there will be Home Depot GC for my son’s father, I’m almost positive that there will be either one or all from AC Moore, Michaels and/or Bed Bath & Beyond! I know some people think giving a gift card is impersonal and an “easy” out, but I have to disagree. I would much rather know the person will be getting something he/she actually wants rather then something they will never use or wind up returning for store credit anyways. Also, prepaid credit cards on various denominations are a great gift as they can be used in stores or online.

  • Melissa F.
    December 10, 2013 - 11:25 am

    We will have some standard gift cards under tree this year. My favorite is Target. I love those digital stamps they are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  • Carmen
    December 10, 2013 - 12:01 pm

  • Karen McNamara

  • Dorina D

    December 10, 2013 - 12:19 pm

  • Patricia Zukowski
    December 10, 2013 - 1:07 pm

    Hopefully there will be many from our local scrapbooking store from my family . Clothes and jewellery are nice but scrapbooking lasts all year and is so much more fun. I try to get my grandchildren together for one day during the holiday, since they all live a fair ways from each other , then we scrapbook and create all day.

  • Carla Hundley
    December 10, 2013 - 1:09 pm

    Some Barnes & Noble bookstore,
    Deseret Books and hopefully
    an Archiver’s or Pebbles In My
    Pocket cards!

    The gift cards under our tree this year are for my DD and her partner – having just bought their first house they are getting one for Bunnings (home improvement) and a movie one. Love the envelopes :)

  • Jenell S.
    December 10, 2013 - 1:43 pm

    I usually purchase gift cards for each of my grown kids – but instead of putting them under the tree, I add them to their stockings. They all look forward to their stockings, even more than presents, I think. They get about 3 gift cards each for restaurants, iTunes, gas cards, etc. I’ll probably have some under the tree, wrapped in cute little gift card holders like yours, because I love them, for my daughters! Will there be any under the tree for me? I hope so – and anything that has to do with scrapbooking makes be happy.

  • Michelle Price
    December 10, 2013 - 1:55 pm

    Giftcards to all of my favorite craft and scrapbooking stores of course.

  • Tabitha

  • Tammy Luiz
    December 10, 2013 - 9:54 pm

    Hopefully one to a store I frequent from my dad and his wife. If my stepmother shops, things never seem to fit and she cuts all the tags off so they can’t be exchanged. Most likely one for a craft store from my best friend. Even better, that would mean a shopping day together the week after Christmas!

  • stacie D

    We’re giving a gift card to the neighbor next door. She’s our former babysitter. She’s studying for her doctorate right now and she does most of her studying at Starbucks, so we are giving her a Starbucks gift card. I know she’ll put it to good use! I love this coin envelope idea as a way to give it to her! Thanks so much!

  • auntie em
    December 11, 2013 - 6:48 pm

    Hmmm . . .this year, for once, we will not be giving any gift cards. I actually found presents for everyone this year! But these envelopes are adorable and I downloaded the instructions for future use.

    We usually give gift cards to family that is far away. Panera and Build a Bear are topping the list this year!

    Not many! in fact, we only bought one, for my husband’s Secret Santa, and that was for Home Depot. Everyone else is getting actual goods!

    I always get my daughter a MAC gift card for her makeup and I always create a gift box to put it in, this year I used a band aid box. She keeps all the decorated boxes

    Starbucks is always a big hit around our household for gift cards. My kids are still at the age that they would prefer real “gifts” instead of gift cards.

    I love these! I’m always looking for new ideas for gift card holders. This year we have Wal-Mart, Mark’s WorkWearHouse, Tim Horton’s, Cineplex Movies and Montana’s gift cards under the tree.

    I wish Starbucks!! But probably just iTunes for the kids as the nearest Starbucks is a 16 hour drive!
