Gift Card Presents

I love gift cards!  I know many people think they are a cop out, last minute, haven't-put-any-thought-into-it gift...but for those on our list who have everything and are hard to buy for, they are always perfect.

I came up with a cute way to package those gift cards:
The one on the left is how it looks closed, the right one is open.  This way they still get a present to "open"!

These are very simple to make: 
Start with a piece of cardstock 5"x12"
Score along long side at 5" and 10"
Fold along score lines
Embellish as desired, I used a velcro dot to hold it closed.
That's it!  I whipped these two up in about 15 minutes using retired CTMH Evensong paper pack.

I'm going to share this over at Heart 2 Heart, where the last challenge of the year is an easy one...a Christmas card!

Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. I love it! Great design :) TFS & Merry Christmas.

  2. These look beautiful Lorrinda.

    I think gift cards are a good gift for those that have everything or are hard to buy for.

    Packaging them like this shows that you still put a lot of thought and love in to the gift.

    Merry Christmas.
