Large Gift Card Holders

My dad wanted gift card holders that didn't look like they were holding gift cards! Now go figure!
So, I used 5 of our (TAC's) medium jewel boxes and made slider covers! I used some old Basic Grey DP and stamps! I used Christmas Fun, Ornamental Snowflakes, a current GWP, and a retired set. I also used Prismacolor Pencils, Stickles, a large scallop circle punch, the Mega Circle punch, the Giga Scallop Square punch, the Mega Scallop Oval punch, and the Super Scallop Oval punch (don't have the link right now). My Dad just loved them! The gift card were wrapped with tissue paper so you're not really sure what' in the box! Pretty cool if I say so myself!!

These little trees are made out of 3 $5 bills each! I did a couple more little boxes like the ones above to put these in. They are for my niece and nephew. I wonder how long they'll stay looking like this? I "googled" money origami and found the directions for these! Kinda unique way of sending money.

How are you coming along with your Christmas gifts? I'm finally getting some decorations up. Got all the gifts purchased.

Love the idea of creating a larger giftbox to hold a giftcard--makes the presentation more "special". And those origami Christmas trees are a HOOT!

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

LOVE these! The money Christmas trees is such a great idea. I think I will have to use it in the future.

Very clever use of the bigger-box for a gift card holder! Plus they'll be able to re-use the box!

And the trees look very fun!
