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!
I 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!

Rudolph Gift Card Holder
- Toilet Paper Tube
- Red Pom Pom
- Green Oly*Fun
- Googly Eyes
- Mini Stapler
- Red/White Baker’s Twine
- 1/16 Hole Punch
1. Using the image below as a general guideline, cut the antler shapes out of the top of the tube.
2. 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!
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!
