Decorated Boxes for Gift Cards & More

Whether you're giving gift cards this holiday season or throughout the year for birthdays, graduations, and other special events, you may want to consider decorating some Stampin' Up! boxes to package them in. I've found that our Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes and our Kraft Gift Boxes are sized perfectly for gift cards that are mounted on the larger card board pieces.

I tucked gift cards and treats in Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes then decorated them with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper for my nieces. I sure am going to miss this DSP. It was one of my very favorite holiday papers ever! Gift tags are fast and easy to make when you use our Tailored Tags Dies.

I used the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper to decorate another Mini Paper Pumpkin Box to package a gift card for a special couple. The Silver Mesh Metallic Ribbon is the perfect accent to this gorgeous paper.

The Sweet Little Stockings Suite provided the perfect paper to decorate a Kraft Gift Box to gift a dog paw ornament.

Painted Christmas Gift Card Holders

'Tis the season for giving so why not make the gift cards you give extra special with some creative packaging. Here are some gift card holders you can make up quickly, after all, time is at a premium for everyone. And these gift card holders are EASY to make and use limited supplies. Just use what you have on hand. I used the Painted Christmas Suite. The Designer Series Paper is traditional in its colors and images, but you use what you like, traditional or not. Start with a half sheet of Designer Series Paper, then just score and fold and decorate for Christmas. I'd love to see the gift card holders you create!

Be sure to save the cutting and scoring dimensions so you can make gift cards year round for any and all occasions that come up. 

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Designer Series Paper = 5 1/2" x 12", score at 3 1/2", 7 3/4", 9 7/8" on LONG side
  • Coordinating card stock = 3/4" x 5 1/2"

1 Sheet of DSP for 9 Gift Cards Holders

I want to show you how to make 9 festive Gift Card Holders quickly and easily with just 1 sheet of your favorite Designer Series Paper. In this Facebook Live Video Replay you'll see that I used my favorite sheet in the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper pack with card stock in coordinating colors of Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, and Mossy Meadow. The sentiment is part of the Holly Jolly Wishes Stamp Set. The finished size of each Gift Card Holder is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and fit in our standard envelopes. It's so fun to mix & match colors and patterns for your own handmade gift card holders. What a fun way to give gift card holders in pretty packaging that is sure to add to the delight of your gift card recipients. So watch my video then give it a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly you can make a set of 9 gift card holders.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card stock = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 1 1/4" and 5 1/2" on long side.
  • White card stock for inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Designer Series Paper = 4" x 4"
  • Designer Series Paper Strip = 1 1/4" x 4"

On these gift card holders, I decided to heat emboss the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder. It compliments the metallic silver in the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. It's so elegant.

Gingerbread & Peppermint Card & Gift Bag

I'm so excited to share today's card and gift bag project with you. I absolutely love it. I created this festive card with products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. Talk about FUN. This suite has it! Traditional bright red and green patterns and a traditional theme of yummy holiday treats - gingerbread and peppermints. Be sure to download the project sheet using the link below for today's Free Friday Download.

As an alternate to mailing this card, you can give it the additional purpose of decorating a gift bag. Card & Gift Bag together, no lost cards or tiny tag. To do this cut a 1 1/2" strip of coordinating color card stock the width of your gift bag. Use a strong adhesive (like Stampin' Seal+ or Tear & Tape) on each end of the strip only to adhere it to the bag. Slip the card over the strip and there you go!

A Brand New (to me) Card Layout

The best parts about my Stampin' Up! community is the relationships and friendships built and the sharing of creative ideas, tips, and techniques. Learning and sharing of creative projects never gets old and is what keeps me motivated!

As part of a Demonstrator Collaboration with my friend and fellow SU! Demonstrator, I created this card based on a layout I saw on Anna Helman's blog. Click here to see Anna's original project.

I love that this card layout not only showcases the beautiful Tidings of Christmas Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper but also helps me use up those leftover strips that accumulate. I'm so happy with the way this card turned out.
