Rudolph Gift Card Holder

This super easy Rudolph Gift Card Holder is simple enough for a child to make and uses recycled material! A perfect teacher's gift!I love making projects with my kids that can be used as holiday gifts and this Rudolph Gift Card Holder is no exception! Made with a recycled toilet paper tube, this tutorial not only works on manual dexterity and childhood creativity, but also teaches a great lesson on reusing materials that would otherwise be thrown away. Win/win for everyone!

I’m super excited to be taking part in the first annual Home for the Holidays Blog Tour bought to you by Sondra Lyn at Home so make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out tons more great projects!

Rudolph Gift Card Holder - HangI used mine as a gift card holder but really, you can fill it with any gift small enough to fit within the tube. Small toys or even wrapped candies would be a super cute gift for your kids to give their friends. I’d love to hear any other ideas you have!

1. Using the image below as a general guideline, cut the antler shapes out of the top of the tube.

Rudolph Gift Card Holder - Cut2. Cut a small strip of the green Oly*Fun and wrap around the base of the tube. Staple the “scarf” in place. Oly*Fun is seriously one of my new favorite products to craft with! It has the feel of fabric with the convenience of paper. Love this stuff!

Rudolph Gift Card Holder - Staple3. Glue the nose and googly eyes in place. Add a mouth and cut the back of the antlers so that they can fold out.

Rudolph Gift Card Holder - Add face4. Punch a small hole at the top, insert gift card, and close with a gift tag and twine.

Such an easy gift to make and give, right? You could trim the twine if you’re planning on giving the gift by hand or leave it long if you want to surprise a neighbor or co-worker and hang on their door. As I mentioned above, you can fill the tube with any small gift or treat! Hope you and your kids enjoy making your own Rudolph Gift Card Holder!

  2. Hi Vanessa, What a clever way to up cycle a paper roll instead of tossing it in the trash. I’m going to add this to my “kid craft” list, because I know my helpers would have fun making your cute reindeer!
