If you are ever in a situation where you are giving a gift card, this just might come in handy.
Over the holidays I had purchased a couple of cards that did not come with decorative sleeves and I wanted to dress them up a bit. I did a little brainstorming and thought I would make my hubby a gift card holder decoration.
I did make him a decoration holder, but I also wanted to put one into a holiday card.
I had seen decorative photo corners used in scrap booking and thought, “This should work for a Gift Card as well!”.
So here is the quick fix:
All you need is decorative photo corners which can be found in the scrap booking area of Michaels (use a coupon). These come in various colors like gold, silver, and black. I went with the silver.
I simply figured out where I wanted to gift card to lay, and put photo corners on each end. I then laid this directly inside the card. This trick worked out great and I’m thinking, “Why didn’t I figure this out sooner?”. FYI, make sure you indicate the card value somewhere. 🙂
Do you use anything to dress up your gift cards? Any special tricks you want to share?
In the future even if I have a cover from the issuer, I am going to do this. It is so nice to not have the gift move around, or fall out when the card is opened. I also think this would work well when sending school photos to relatives, we almost lost a few in holiday cards because they fell to the bottom and got left in the envelope.
If you try this out, let me know how it goes!
