Wrapping Idea for Gift Cards


Wrapping Gift Cards can be a challenge! 

 I don't want to just throw the gift card in an envelope...that's boring.  Here's a fun easy idea.  Any tag cut will do with your Cricut.  Many of the carts have a tag feature.  For my tags I used my SU Sizzex Two Tags die.  I stamped this Tim Holtz Tall Trees stamp and added a little silver glitter glue for snow.  Then pop a little glue dot on the back of the card so it doesn't slide around.  


I picked up a multi pack of iTunes gift cards and tied the tags together using some bakers twine.

Here is the 2nd tag cut from the tag die.  It's a great tag to stamp "TO: & FROM" which I see I forgot on this one.  Then I added a little silver glitter glue to the swirly bits.

I picked up these brown mini Kraft bags from a packaging store last month, 100 for $4!  I am almost out.  They hold gift cards perfectly and you can stuff a ton in these bags.  I stamped again the Tall Trees stamp, attached the smaller tag with bakers twine and done!  EASY wrap job.

Here are all the gift bags I made for all the teens in my family.  My BIL &SIL are taking 4 of these home for Christmas.  These are small and compact enough to pack!

I'm always looking for new and unique ways to wrap gift cards.  I hope you try this if you are looking for an easy wrapping idea.  These bags and tags take minutes to whip together.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
