Jin's Color-Your-Own {Starbucks} gift card holder


Last Friday I showed you how to turn an SVG into a coloring page. If you had missed that post, click HERE to see it. For today's project, I used the same method to turn an SVG into a non-colored image. Instead of a coloring page, I used it to make a Color-Your-Own gift card holder.

Last week was Teacher's Appreciation Week and as much as I enjoy making things for the school, I wanted to get the kids involved when it comes to gift-making for the teachers. A Color-Your-Own project sounds like a great way to get them to add their special touch! 

The gift card holder template is the same as the one that I used last year but I did make some modifications. I added an inside layer with two tabs to hold the actual gift card and for a more polished look, I also made a sleeve that wraps around the card and hold it together.

Here are the layers:


This is how the cards look when assembled but not yet colored.


Once I finished assembling the cards, I let the kids get creative.



Here's what they came up with:


We enclosed a Starbucks gift card inside each of these holders and gave them away with a box of chocolates for Teacher's Appreciation Week. These would also be great as end-of-year gifts. In fact, I'm thinking of making a couple more of these cards to give to the other school staff on the last day of school. It's a great way to present a gift card and for the kids to show their appreciation at the same time.
