A while back someone left a comment asking for craft ideas using Japanese masking tape. I've shared about ideas before here, here, and here. However, if you're still looking for new projects to make with the tape, try out these gift card holders. Directions below.
Strip of paper cut to 7" x 2 1/4"
Japanese masking tape
*Click on pictures for a larger view.
Take your strip of paper and fold in half (refer to pictures).
Place the paper on top of half of the tape. Wrap the tape around the other side to seal one side.
Trim top and bottom edges. Repeat steps on opposite side.
Place a piece of tape down the center and have it fold over at the bottom and up the other side. Your card holder should look the same on both sides now.
Place a piece of tape on the card to make a tab to pull the card out of the holder. Make sure the tape doesn't cover up any bar codes.
Place card in holder. Done.
For a different look, I used newspaper with grey tape. I also wrapped the card holder in string and made a string tab for the card.
