Hello friends! I'm back for Day 2 of our Blog Swap Week with Hello Spring and Petaloo! Today I'll share some super cute gift card holders created by Biker Chick Heather Leopard. Don't forget to leave a comment here on the blog for a chance to win some fun goodies from Petaloo and LYB, and also head over to Petaloo's Blog for more inspiration from Petaloo's Design Team!
Here's Heather to tell you about her projects!
I know some people prefer to buy gifts instead of gift cards but in my family, anything goes. I don’t mind receiving gift cards and I usually invite the person who gave it to me to join me when I go shopping so we can spend the time together.
The actual gift cards these days are usually decorated with a great themed design but the card sleeves they come with are often too generic for my liking. These are super easy to make and I think they add the perfect extra touch.
I created these small boxes by cutting them out the old fashioned way. No cartridge, just a template (you can get the template by clicking the link!), scissors and liquid glue.
After I cut them and glued them together, which took me less than 30 minutes, I embellished them with a bit of ribbon and Petaloo flowers & butterflies. Can you see those butterflies??? They have a velvety finish to them and I adore them!
Next, I choose coordinating papers to hold the gift cards, making sure that the back side of the papers were light colored so that I can include a personal note.
Last, I added flowers to the inside cards and voila! Oh and I couldn’t stop making them. These gift boxes don’t have to be limited to Mother’s Day. They can be for birthdays, Father’s day, Christmas, anything. Actually, I made the 3rd to give for a friend’s birthday. They also don’t have to be limited to gift cards – the possibilities are endless, so long as it can all fit in the box!
Thanks Little Yellow Bicycle and Petaloo!
