Matchbook Gift Card Holders – So Fun!

Recently my upline Mary Fish from Stampin’ Pretty created gift card holders that resemble matchbooks — they’re perfect for our upcoming holiday season, or any time! I decided to try my hand at them, and whipped up three!


  • Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper
  • Stamp Sets: Happy & Heartfelt – Framed Florets
  • Cardstock: Balmy Blue
  • Embellishments: Iridescent Pearls

Here’s what the inside looks like!


  • Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper
  • Stamp Sets: Festive Florets
  • Cardstock: Poppy Parade
  • Embellishments: Iridescent Pearls


  • Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper
  • Stamp Sets: Happy & Heartfelt
  • Cardstock: Basic White, Highland Heather
  • Ribbon: Orchid Oasis Woven Metallic Ribbon

So fun! They really do resemble a little matchbox. Mary’s dimensions can be found below– you simply cut the base, score, and then fold! I used a piece of Tear n Tape inside at the very bottom of the fold (underneath the bottom sentiment) to adhere the fold together and create the gift card pocket. Don’t use tape on the entire flap, or your gift card won’t have any room! Then decorate!


  • Basic White Thick Card Stock:
    • Matchbook Base – 3 1/8 x 8 5/8, scored the short distance at 3 3/8″, 3 3/4″, and 7 3/4″.
  • Basic White Card Stock:
    • Celebrate Sentiment – 2 1/8 x 1/2
    • Jolly Cropped Sentiment – 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 (before cropping)
  • Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper:
    • Small Squares – 1 x 1 (Qty 4)
    • Gingham – 2 3/4 x 2 1/2

I hope you enjoyed these gift card holders!
