When I give gift cards, I really like to make them extra special. I want the recipient to know how much they mean to me and spending a little time on creating just the right packaging makes that gift just a little more personal and special. Besides they are special to me so it's worth the time and effort.
I dont' know about you, but when someone goes the extra mile to wrap my presents, I feel good. In fact, lots of times I can't bring my self to open them, because they are absolutely beautiful.
I got this idea out of the Sommerset Life Magazine Nov/Dec 2011 edition. I had so much fun putting it together.
It all started with some wax paper, my sewing machine and some decorative paper.
Oh how I Love sewing on paper!
I took some wax paper and created a little pocket folding in half and sewing up the side. I used a piece of scrap paper from the dress to make a topper.
To make the dress, I simply free handed a dress form and stitched up the sides. I used the gift card envelope and added some antique ink and a free Printable I found on Pinterest then added a few embellishments.
Add a simple ribbon and Happy Birthday tag.
Tuck away in the Wax paper envelope to provide a sneak peak effect of what's inside.
Doesn't this look like an easy project for your next gift card?
Give it a try, it was really simple!
Happy Crafting all,
