Easy DIY Card Holder Directions from


  • Cut a strip to size (the template measures 1.5” x 8”). I suggest using cardstock paper for strength.
  • Fold the strip in half (bending at the short side, I believe some call it “hamburger style” vs. “hot dog style” haha!)
  • Open the strip and fold each end into the middle crease. You’ve now created 4, 2” sections with your creases. Open the strip back up.
  • Fold in half just as you did to begin, cut a slit just over 1” deep in the middle of the strip (shown in photo 6 & 7).
  • Now fold your strip into a triangle shape, following the creases with the slit at the peak of the triangle. Glue the bottom two folds together. Let dry.
  • Gently slip your desired card into the slit until snug and adjust as needed to fit the card to your liking!
  • “Ooooh and aaaah” over your darling new holder and give yourself a little pat on the back for a job well done!

  1. I appreciate this site more than any other Christian site I have used. Thank you for your unselfish way of
    “spreading the Word”. I use these printables in mail to friends, shut-ins, nursing home cards. The newest I received for Easter will use to mark places at the dinner on the grounds tables on Palm Sunday!

    • Thank you, Emily! It brings me so much JOY to hear of you spreading joy with these verse card printables!
