"I admit, I know nothing about Minecraft! My kids are too young so I'm basically clueless. So when they were invited to a Minecraft birthday party, I just had to go along with the theme. Using a free graphic,a piece of cardstock and some glue, I was able to create a Minecraft Diamond Sword that I made look as though it had speared the birthday gift card. This unique gift card holder can be created within 30 minutes or less."

Estimated CostUnder $10

Time to CompleteUnder an hour

Primary TechniqueGeneral Paper Crafting

Project or Page Size8.5 inches x 11 inches

Type of Paper UsedCardstock


Materials List

  • Free downloadable printable Minecraft Diamond Sword template (available on my website)
  • 1 piece of sturdy cardstock
  • Circle template (I used a shot glass to trace two circles)
  • Craft glue
  • Gift card


  1. Download and print out the Minecraft Diamond Sword template

  2. Cut out the templates

  3. Glue one side of the template onto a sturdy piece of cardstock (or lightweight cardboard). Cut out the shape.

  4. Turn cardstock over and glue the other template onto its backside.

  5. Decide where on the sword you want to cut. Make an angled cut. You will now have two pieces of sword.

  6. On each piece of the sword, cut a small slit in the center. Fold the sides of the slit in opposite directions.

  7. Cut out two circles on the same piece of cardstock. (I used a shot glass to trace my circle shapes.)

  8. Glue the folds on each part of the sword onto the circles. Let dry.

  9. Once secured, glue the circles onto the gift card, being sure to line them up.
