Spellbinders Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial
Hello, Friends! I’m popping in with a little surprise Spellbinders Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial on this Monday morning. It’s going out a little later than I had hoped, but better late than never, right?
My friends at Spellbinders sent me this lovely collection, and I spent a delightful afternoon creating a pile of festive Christmas cards with it. As is usually the case, once I got done, I had a wonderful pile of scraps on my desk. After pondering several good ways to use them, I landed on the idea of making Christmas Gift Card Wallets. Oh, what fun! In fact, they were so much fun, I decided I should make a little tutorial for you so you can make them, too.
Each gift card is measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and is made from one 12″ x 3 1/2″ scrap of white cardstock.
It only takes about 15 minutes to make each wallet, so if you have a stack of gift cards to give out this year, this is definitely the easy way to do it!
This is a very fun collection to work with. The 6×6 pad of papers has 40 sheets and 10 designs, including stunning gold foiled patterns. Instead of focal images in the paper pad, the collection features 2 different ephemera packs. I’ll show you how to layer the images to create the card focals in the video tutorial below. Everything about this new collection is fresh and festive. My only concern was the weight of the paper; it’s very thin. But since I added layers and used sturdy bases for my cards, everything turned out just fine.
A Peek Inside
Here’s a look at the inside of one gift card holder. It’s a very simple design, but provides ample room for a little sentiment card as well as a gift card or cash. You can adapt the design for any occasion. Since gift cards have become so popular, it’s nice to have a way to dress them up.
Winter Wonderland Christmas Cards
One of the things I really do like about this collection is that you can find at least 3 unique color palettes. The gift card wallets were made with what I called the pink/tan papers. These festive cards represent the red/gold color palette.
There’s also a frosty blue/green color palette that I particularly loved. You can see in these photos how that gold foil just POPS!
Winter Wonderland Easel Card
Of course, I had to make an easel card! This 6×6 card features the beautiful, traditional botanical images from the collection.
The brake or stopper on the card is actually a pocket. This gives you a place to tuck in a gift card and a little note.

Kathy, what a wonderful collection of gift card wallets! This paper collection is so pretty and retro looking. I especially like the one with the deer. We are starting to see so many of them these days. Your easel card is so pretty. I love the image of the little red VW bug as I used to have one long ago. Also those pretty red and green buttons really dress it up! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
