I love giving gift cards, but hate not giving a package to open, so this year I am trying to dress up my gift card holders a bit. One person on my list is getting a gift card to the movies. So, I looked around online and found a few ideas – a popcorn box, a movie clapper and a cute themed card and then I looked at my stash of goodies. And this is what I came up with:
I started with a popcorn bag (we have a cool popcorn cart just outside our “media room”), then I folded it twice, so that the top of the bag was at the back and the “popcorn” illustration was on the front, like this:
I used adhesive to glue it so it would stay together. Next I punched two small holes on the very back piece and put in a couple of large eyelets. I strung bits of Christmas string (the metallic stuff that you can use to decorate presents) through the eyelets and tied double knots on the back side. This allows you to hang the gift card holder on the tree. I opted to decorate the front with a single strip of Christmasy washi shape, inserted the gift card in the pocket and, TA-DA!, the gift card holder is ready to hang on the tree!
