In our town we have a few groups that help out families in the area when someone is sick or recovering from an injury.  They help with meals, sometimes with gift cards to favorite restaurants, local cleaning service, grocery delivery and the like.  I thought it would be fun to put together a little get well gift card holder for all the items gathered.  This would also be a great get well gift to a friend after surgery or illness.  Happy Healing is the perfect collection to use for this, take a peek...

The front of my gift card holder is a shaker, made to look like the little pill bottle in the collection.  I filled it with the Pill Better, Limeade, Ladybug, Bumblebee and Swimming Pool Shakers.  I added some pills from the Odds & Ends as well as a sentiment from the Chit Chat pieces.

Inside, it holds 6 little gift card sized envelopes.  The envelopes are from a cut file, but you could create your own, they measure 3.625" x 2.5".  

For the holder wrap, I cut a strip of cardstock 2.75"x12".  I scored it at 1.25", 3.25", 7.25" and 9.25".  I folded all the scores in the same direction to form the outside of the holder.  I added patterned papers to the inside and outside sections, for color and a little extra strength. My Shaker is glued to the front, bottom section (larger of the two).  The top folds in behind the shaker and I added a little piece of Velcro to keep it closed.

The gift cards envelopes are attached using a hidden binding.  To create it I started with a 2.5" x 4.75" piece of cardstock.  I scored it every .25".  The diagram below shows how I put it together.  I folded the areas under the blue sections into a peak,  and glue them together so they stick up.  The end result is you would have 6 sections that stick up with two "flaps" on the outside edges.  I glued this to the bottom section of my wrap, and then glued each envelope to one of the sections that stick up.

This photo shows how the envelopes are attached to the hidden binding.

Now for the fun part, decorating!  I used a little bit of everything to decorate the individual gift card holders including Bits & Pieces, Odds & Ends, Chit Chat pieces, Puffy Icons, Icon stickers, shaped sprinkles and the dies Happy Healing Doodle Cuts (the ones that coordinate with the Stamp Set) for the Get Well Sentiment.

My first envelope holds a tag from the Bits & Pieces with a little sentiment.  I tied it with some Limeade Doodle Twine.

The rest of the envelopes are ready for gift cards!  

I completed the inside of my wrap using the cutest sticker of the bunch... the little get well bear!  I love how this turned out, and I think it would also be a fun idea for a birthday or Christmas gift!  That's it for me today, thank you for stopping by to peek!
