how do you make a gift card pretty?



i think that a big part of the fun in gift giving is in the gift wrapping. but trying to come up with a creative wrapping idea for the ever popular gift card was a challenge. usually when you purchase a gift card, a generic holder comes with it...so i decided to modify it a little using some scrapbook paper.


this is basically an envelope, but made with double sided cardstock.  for the front, i used the lettering from my "holly jolly everything" cards and tied a ribbon around the card to keep it closed.  the little holly charm that's attached to the ribbon was made using shrinky dinks.  i'm putting together a little tutorial that gives the cutting and scoring information...i'll post it tomorrow!
