Hey all you gift card crafters out there! I’ve got a super fun (and free!) printable gift card holder that I cannot wait to share with you. This is the start of a great gift for any celebration such as a birthday, anniversary or Valentine’s Day. And it pairs perfectly with a restaurant gift card. Let me give you some examples.

FREE DOWNLOAD: “What’s on the Menu?” gift card holder

Print the Gift Card Holder

If you have access to a color printer, download the free printable “What’s on the Menu?” gift card holder. Print the file using the best quality settings your printer allows and use a nice card stock if you can. If you don’t have a printer at home, send the file you just downloaded to Staples or another copy center. (I often do this when I don’t want to deplete the ink in my home printer or don’t trust my printer to feed the thicker paper through the machine without a paper jam. It’s pretty quick and cost-effective for a high quality printable.)

Once printed, this is what the downloaded file looks like:

Using the crop marks as your guide, trim the gift card holder.

Now you’re ready to add the gift card and decorate the gift card holder if you want.

Add a Gift Card

Once cut and printed, simply add a restaurant-themed gift card. Here are some suggestions: Happy Dining gift card, Happy Bites gift card, Chipotle gift card, Applebee’s gift card or any gift card that is food-related.

The printable will fit nicely in a standard 5 x 7-inch envelope.

Decorate the Gift Card Holder

If you’re a crafter who likes to add embellishments to the things you make, then this is your chance. Add another layer of card stock, twirl some ribbon, get out the glitter or tape the gift card using decorative tape. These are all simple ways to make this adorable gift card holder even cuter.

Pair the Gift Card

Taking this gift one step further, pair the “What’s on the Menu?” gift card holder with something food-related. I paired the gift card holder with a whisk and a barbecue set. Seriously, this is so cute!

I often deliver restaurant gift cards with a homemade dish. This gives the recipient a treat to enjoy in the moment plus a gift card to be redeemed later. Think of it as a gift card appetizer!
