As I was finishing up the last minute gift wrapping (at least for all the gifts that are done, still DIYing a couple things), I decided I wanted a better way to wrap up the gift cards we are giving. Gift cards are a great gift, but those tiny envelopes just look so sad under tree. I wanted a cute little gift card box that would make those gift cards look as special as they are! I mean who doesn’t like to receive money for Christmas?!
The first one I made is a pretty standard gift card box, but of course I jazzed it up with some sparkly scrapbook paper. Then a quick tie with some twine and it’s the perfect way to wrap a gift card. And this box is so easy to put together!!! It’s easier than wrapping an irregular box (or those kids toys that have open fronts on the boxes, I hate wrapping them!).
But I also had an idea for another style of gift card box. One that would fall open and reveal the pop-up gift card inside. This gift card holder almost didn’t happen. The top of the box was giving me oh, so many issues. I used up about 12 sheets of paper cutting, redesigning, and cutting again. It was late last night and I almost gave up. Luckily, I didn’t have to wake up early this morning and I persisted!
They say 3rd times a charm, but this one took me 6 tries. It was worth it because the gift card box opens like a flower to reveal the prize inside. And it too is easy to make (now that I have it figured out). You can leave the box as is, add a cute little tag or bow. But I can’t wait to see how it is opened up in a few days!
