Make a Multiple Gift Card Wallet! {great gift idea!}

Hello Friends! Today I have a project that I hope you will enjoy. With the school year winding down you might be scrambling to find ideas to thank the scout leaders, teachers and coaches in your life. Gift cards are usually the way to go if you are unsure about their personal style and when you are giving a gift as a group everyone who wants can contribute a card to a place they think the recipient might like. It’s like giving a guilt free shopping spree! And this is a fun way to package and store them and you can make it affordable using supplies from Papermart. Watch the video to see how it is done:

Directions:

I started by cutting a 5″x12″ piece of sturdy patterned paper then used a label die to shape one end of the strip. Then I scored and folded the paper so I had a cute purse with a gusset at the bottom. I sealed and cut the ends off three envelopes, stacked them and folded them in half then I punched tabs in the center of the open ends to make the gift cards easy to remove. I punched holed through the stack of envelopes and gusset area of the purse and used baker’s twine to tie it together. I made the handles from Jute cord. The flap is secured with hook and loop tape, only $2.39 for a 10 yard roll of each! I embellished the purse with die cut leaves and flowers as well as buttons. For further instruction refer to the video.

I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy project! Happy crafting!

Easy & Quick Gift Card Wrap!

T’was the weekend before Christmas and all though the house, every last minute shopper was feeling like a louse…. Never fear, Lindsay to the rescue! Head down to the corner store and grab a gift card, convenience stores now sell gift cards to almost everywhere from toy stores to department store or you can even buy a gas card, who wouldn’t want that? If you have not found and made the perfect gift by now buy a gift card, that way you won’t end up settling for a sub-par gift that will just collect dust.  Plus, look at the upside, you can get a gift card for a friend to their favorite shop or restaurant, they might not often treat themselves to a meal or purchase there otherwise so that is a great idea (especially if they are broke after the holiday) your practical  family member might like the gas card or grocery store card, you can’t go wrong, everyone has to eat! So now that you have decided to let go of the gift card guilt here is a quick and easy way to wrap them AND you get to make a bit of their gift too! The supplies I used are from Papermart.

Hey, and if you have no time to get to the store you can just put a bit of cash in the envelope, no one will mind:)

Supplies:

6″ round paper doilies

Baker’s Twine

Hook and Loop tape (only $2.39 for 10 yards!, not Velcro brand though)

Other: scrapbook paper, glue stick, hot glue, hole punch, scissors, circle cutter (optional)
