Greetings, Roadies! We're nearly at the big day and if things for you are going anything like the way things are for me... well, you could use another week, at least! This is the week we've got to pull it all together and bring out those small gifts for the people who make our lives easier: teachers, aids, bus drivers, postal workers, and other folks who deserve a little something extra for the holidays.
Today I'll be showing you two easy and cute ways to dress up gift cards. Let's face it... we all want them but they aren't typically as fun to give. Unless you wrap them up like this!
This is my favorite teacher gift to give. Every teacher I know loves coffee and this is an adorable way to wrap a coffee gift card. I used a reusable lightweight plastic Starbucks cup that sell for $2 and added patterned paper, ephemera, and loads of Maya Road embellishments.
The outer wrapper is a Silhouette cut. I added a bracket edge tag to the front along with the "happy" die cut from Maya's awesome metal dies. The snowflake is also a metal die and it looks so cool cut from silver foil paper. I also punched a hole in the bottom of the tag to hang a few things. I painted the Shot Through the Heart scalloped chipboard and covered the top heart in paper. And how else can you complete on of the cups without a super cute Tall Cup Clip!?
I attached this tag cluster with twine through the drinking hole in the top of the lid. I cut a tag for identification, painted and papered a Mixed Scallop Mini Pennant Banner, added another silver die cut snow flake and a Crystal Circle Button.
Inside you'll find the coffee gift card and a bunch of chocolate... for bonus points.
The pillow boxes were super easy and fun to whip up. These are great to hand out when you have a small present but want a lot of punch. The basic pillow box is another Silhouette cut and I wrapped each with multiple Maya trims and embellishment clusters.
I can't get enough of these Deer Head Clips!
Thanks for taking a break from your busy day to visit us!
