Check the current SIM first, see if you can pop out the micro bit in the middle. if not, Order a new SIM here :https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm and when it arrives, you can do a SIM Swap

All the account details will transfer over to it, including goodybag, number and credit.

● Please back up the current SIM contacts beforehand
as these can not be transferred over during a SIM swap

Here is how to carry out a SIM swap:
Click this link and log in:
Http://j.mp/swapsim
● Enter in the 6 digit code from your new SIM
● On the next page it will show the 6 digit activation
codes and SIM serial numbers of your current and new
SIM cards.

Click on where it says...
● "Yes I want to replace my SIM"
(scroll down to see on mobile)

● On the next page click "yes I'm sure"
Your new SIM should be active within 30 minutes.
Your old SIM will then be disabled.
You have now completed a SIM swap.

Have a look here "My giffgaff">Spread giffgaff to order a new sim

 

The micro sim will probably be encased inside a normal sized sim and you'll have to pop it out. When it arrives perform a sim swap and your account details will all be transferred seamlessly over to the new sim.

 

For guidance on how to do the swap see here What is SIM Swap ? - The giffgaff community

Sorry just noticed your reg date, you could send for a new sim and do a sim swap or cut your standard to size. There are guides on youtube.

Simply order a new sim through the giffgaff fine page. Choose the 'dual Sim' option. Thereafter perform a Sim swap, here's the guidehttp://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/What-is-SIM-Swap/ta-p/7320084
