Best Gift Card Wallet

Gift cards are easy gifts to give, but giving them isn't very exciting. Give a dull gift in a fun way with the Best Gift Card Wallet. With this tutorial, you will learn how to make a wallet out of paper. This wallet is the perfect size to give not one, not two, but many gift cards. Buy several gift cards for your friend or family member and tuck them inside this fantastic wallet. Giving several gift cards is better than just one, and giving them in a handmade wallet is even better.

Best Gift Card Wallet


  • A Piece of Patterned Paper Measuring 8” X 18”
  • A Few Scraps of Cardstock
  • ¼ Inch Double-Sided Tape
  • An Assortment of Giftcards


  1. Start by visiting their favorite coffee house, cupcake bakery, movie house, or yoga studio to purchase the gift cards. The value of each card doesn’t have to be huge - just enough for a latte, smoothie or a single yoga lesson.
  2. Select a paper that represents your recipient well. I had a word-traveler in mind for this project, and chose to use a sheet of map gift wrap.
