It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 13–Gift Card Ornaments

19 December 2012 9 Comments

I’m so glad you popped in on us for our 13th, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas post.  This is a 25 post series about all things Merry & Bright.  Although, truth be told, I may only fit in 20 posts (or maybe 15 haha) before the 25th.  December flew by didn’t it?

I always feel a little bit guilty when I give a gift card.  Not because it isn’t a great gift, (personally I love receiving gift cards) but because I feel like they don’t present as well as a beautifully wrapped gift.  So, this year I decided to up the gift card wrapping ante and made them in to ornaments.  For the first one I used a tiny envelope I had laying around.  It perfectly fit the card.  I wrapped some fabric ribbon around it and attached it to a snowflake ornament with a dab of hot glue.Gift Card Holder 1For the second card I made an envelope out of a scrap of wrapping paper, added a sparkle ribbon and attached to another snowflake ornament.Gift Card Holder 2This really couldn’t be easier and to me they feel just a little bit more special. Wouldn’t you be happy to see these hanging on the tree on Christmas morning? I sure would!Gift Card Holder 3I’m almost done all of my wrapping now.  I have gotten a few requests for a tutorial for the flowers I showed you here.  And of course I also have to share my Christmas Tree – how have I not done that?  It’s been up since November!  I’ll be back tomorrow to share!  How is your holiday prep going?  Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away?diana

    Cute idea! I always feel guilty giving a gift card too! Not sure why though- I love getting them! I gave my brother a gift card bouquet last year as a present and blogged about it. It was gift cards on flower store card spikes along with skewers of candies all in a glass vase. He quite enjoyed it!
