Here we are, one month after Christmas and I’m here to bring my last Handmade Christmas Gift post.
Nowadays, gift cards are just a part of the cycle of go-to presents people give. While they aren’t my favorite to give, sometimes they work for a certain person or couple. Instead of just giving a gift card with the standard folded corporate designed card it comes in, I usually try to wrap it in a unique way.
On a calm December night, I pulled out these supplies, a mixture of kraft, red and gold holiday and non holiday materials:
One episode of Hart of Dixie later, I came downstairs to put these bad boys under the tree:
I used two kraft colored pillow boxes and created simple wraps using die cuts, punches and patterned paper.
For Christmas at D’s uncle’s this year, we decided to do a grab bag with each person arriving with a $25 gift. We went for alcohol with a coordinating gift card or lotto tickets to make up the difference. (the wine and gift card shown here are just stand ins). I created a holder that hung from the bottle neck with the additional gift inside the front pocket.
