Good morning, WeR fans! Jen McDermott here, sharing a neat gift packaging idea for you. I tend to give lots of gift cards these days because they are just so easy to pick up while I’m out shopping, and I KNOW the recipient of the gift will be excited—who DOESN’T want to go on a shopping spree on someone else’s dime? But sometimes it can be hard to package up the gift card in a way that doesn’t scream “I just grabbed this card for you while I was out grocery shopping. No big deal.” We need to add some “oomph!” to our gift card delivery! That is exactly why I love the Pop Up Gift Bag Template Die.
I used the new Cake and Candles paper collection, and ran the template die through my Evolution Advanced twice. (you need two cuts of the die to piece together the gift bag.) I adhered the bag together, and then used a coordinating piece of Cake and Candles; cut and scored to an A2 size, using my Trim and Score.
Finally, I got to work decorating the front of my card. I went with the pop-up theme of the card, and added lots of dimension to the front; using American Crafts pop-up foam tabs on some Cake and Candles Ephemera bits. I also added some enamel shapes from the Cake and Candles collection as well.
And there you have it! A super fun and NOVEL way to give a gift card!
