House Gift Card Folder

Hi everyone! I hope your holiday preparations are moving along. I don't know if it's like this where you live, but we give a lot of gift cards. Our family and friends are spread out all over the country and it's so much easier to mail a small gift card than an actual present. Giving the gift card in an pretty folder like this adds the just right personal touch.

There are lots of other ways to use this die though... If you are not a fan of gift cards, use it to make a fun interactive card- make one for a child and put a special surprise under the door opening. Another way to use it is as a photo frame. I have also cut off the door from matboard to make a nice thick tag.
