Upcycled Paper Toweling Tube Gift Card Holder

I ran across this idea somewhere on the web and I just loved it! Beside that we go through a lot of paper towel and toilet paper with 7 people in the house and I now I have a use for those tubes. You do need the paper towel length tube to make a gift card holder

A toilet paper tube is too short for gift cards, but you can use them for other gifts or treats. I cut the tube down to 5" and pressed it flat. Then I found a can that was the right size and traced the can to make arcs at each end

After they were traced, I scored the lines with a bone folder. Erase the marks and press the ends in along the score.
