Gift Card Holder

Good morning blog friends! I received a gift card over the holidays for one of the chain restaurants (can't remember which one right now) and it came in such a nifty little holder I quickly took it apart to try and replicate it. The cut out window on the sleeve was an apple I think, so I changed that on mine, but here's what I came up with...

 Pretty cute, huh? It's amazing what you can come up with if you pay attention to the packaging to the hundreds of items we buy every day! If you find something you like, take it apart and use it as a template to trace onto your own pretty papers. 

I used Born to Shop for this holder, because after all it is for a shopping card. 

This one is basically an outer sleeve with a die cut window, pretty papers and a bow, and an inside matchbook type card with a pocket inside for a gift card. Very simple. I added a little sentiment to the inside from Set 10- A5 Verses.

I really like the way this came out, it's going to be my future packaging for all gift cards from now on. I just hope I saved the original one.... eep

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
