How to Create a Sweet Trifold Gift Card Holder

I love summertime and everything that it brings with it! Popsicles, ice cream, being in the backyard soaking up the sun, going on road trips, you name it! This month’s Craft Challenge blog post is all about using cool treats to make a trifold gift card holder – perfect for upcoming birthdays or special occasions! The other cool part about this month’s tutorial is that you can use the idea with other themes to make gift card holders for any theme you need. You could swap out the ice cream for flowers or starfish or whatever tickles your fancy. So, let’s get crafting!
