Gift Card Boxes

I have further simplified my Christmas giving life by not running around and buying STUFF that people don't want or need and giving Gift Cards to my kids and their spouses.  I do get a few things for them to unwrap but the bulk of their gifts are in the form of Gift Cards.  I love a Gift Card (I don't know why I'm capitalizing them...but oh well!) so we do love giving what we love receiving, right?  Anyway, I wanted to present them in a cute way and have done all sorts of gift card holders in the past but came across some cute little box designs in the Silhouette Online Store designed by Jamie Cripps.  I thought they were so cute and promptly bought several files.  I had fun cutting them out and assembling them...using papers I've had on hand from previous years.  Mambi, Recollections and probably some DCWV in there, too.
The first one is just a cute little snowflake and the box is cut out of printed paper (Christmasy) but I used the white side for the outside of the box.
 The second one is this cute little holly box.
 The 3third on is with a Christmas tree:
...I already tied this one with some baker's twine.

And the last one is of a cute little Santa Claus look:
Here you can see how the boxes open:
There is actually a little box within a box...so cute!  And so easy!

Then I made a few tags which I tied on to each box.  I used an EK success punch and some Hero Arts Stamps for the "To:" and "From" and added some little Jolee's stickers to them.  Done! Easy! Fast! Cute!!

Today I go back for my first post op visit.  I am amazed with how quickly this old gal is recovering...barely a limp!!!  Bandages come off and I get to see that bad girl! :)

Happy Crafting and hopefully some de-stressing!

  3. So cute! I've never seen anything like these boxes. But here we go again. First I fear my grandkids are going to want to trade me for you. Now my kids are going to want you, too. =) You are a good mother to give the kids gift cards AND something to open.

  4. Love them, Susan! I wish I still had time to do crafts and more importantly the forethought to do something so cute.

  5. Love these boxes. My favorite is the Holly box!

  6. the boxes are awesome, my favorite is Santa Claus-love how it unfolds.
