Holiday Gift Card Box by Karen

Hi everyone! It's Karen, and today, I am sharing a little way to personalize one of the most popular/unpopular gifts out there - gift cards! I have to admit that I always feel a bit guilty giving a gift card - almost like I am not being all that thoughtful when I put a gift card under the tree. But the truth is that gift cards can actually be the perfect gift, and with a little Doodlebug paper and goodies, they can be as personalized as gifts can come!
It will probably come as no surprise that the adorable Milk & Cookies was my choice for this holiday project. This collection is way too cute, and given that gift cards from coffee shops often top my list for teacher gifts, it's a perfect fit!
This little pop up box features a cute little slot for the gift card that I wrapped up inside a pretty doilie... ...slightly hidden behind some of the super cute die cuts from the Odds and Ends pack.
Oh, and just in case you are like me and are putting one of these together at the last minute ('s been known to happen more often than not) and you don't have one of Doodlebug's cute doilies, it looks pretty cute without as well! You can even add a little sentiment or a little treat to the bottom section...just remember that this is the spot needed for the die cuts and the gift card to lay flat when the box is closed!
...and a Doodlebug project isn't finished in my house unless I find a spot for a few Sprinkles...and these beautiful matte ones hit the spot!
So there you have it - if you have a loved one that would love to get a gift card this season, here's a little project that you can create so that you will love giving it! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Karen

    1. Thanks Jennifer! It makes me feel a bit better than just handing over a gift card! ;)

  3. This is awesome! Did you use an SVG file to make the box or did you use a template and cut it out yourself?

  4. These gifts are looking so beautiful and awesome,actually I'm lover of packaging. Whenever I buy any type of product first check its packaging.I also have experienced with packaging company iCustomBoxes. They offer the
    gift boxes in unique colors and designs. They also offering 50% off on all packaging products this Christmas.
