Graduation Pocket Gift Card Holder with Video

Hi crafters! Today, I’m sharing my latest Lori Whitlock Design Team Project. It's a cute mini album made of pocket pages that are sized perfectly for gift cards, a sweet note, photos, tickets, or money. I created mine with a graduation theme, but ... you could embellish this for ANY occasion! And, I've added a VIDEO below so you could see just how easy this was to make.

I chose one of Lori's amazing cutting files called Scalloped Pocket Gift Card Album and decorated it with paper and ephemera from the Bella Blvd, Cap and Gown Collection (product links below).

But ... you could change up the theme and make it for a birthday, Father's Day, a bridal shower, new baby, a house warming, a child when they lose their first tooth, Christmas / Hanukkah, Easter, or Mother's Day.

The cutting file is one pocket page but you could cut as many as you'd like. I made 4 so that I could add a variety of gift cards and notes.

Each page has a self closing pocket that will securely hold your gift cards or other items. At the bottom of each, there are 2 holes where you thread a piece of ribbon or twine to bind the book.

Some gift cards ideas for a new graduate might be - Amazon, Target, Starbucks, Best Buy, a gas station, restaurant, or movie theater. The amounts don't need to be large. This is just a fun way to surprise them.

This is also a great idea for dad on Father's Day. Decorate it with a different theme and add gift cards to Home Depot, Dick's Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shop, his favorite restaurant, or a golf shop.

I embellished each page (front and back) with die cut pieces, but ... you could add photo mats and pictures instead for a more personalized design.

I hope you like my graduation version of the Scalloped Pocket Gift Card Album. It's a simple and fun project that can hold one, or multiple gift cards. Happy crafting!
