Box for gift card

This box would be great for many things (like little treats) but I’m using this first one to hold a gift card. I know there are lots of gift card holder projects out there, but I love this cut from Art Philosophy and wanted to make something with it right away.

I cut this using “Fit To Page” to make it as large as I could get it. I used a pretty double-sided paper that I had. Then I cut several combinations of the outer circle and inner circle to find what I liked best. The pattern paper doesn’t really look like it matches well in this photo, but it’s the inside of the box. I used a CTMH stamp from the bundle for the “love” sentiment. The box was secured with silver ribbon.


I am going to put some pretty iridescent confetti inside of the box and rest the gift card on top of that. I think it’s a nice presentation for a gift card.


This box will make a fun way to package little Halloween treats for my children’s class mates. It would also be great for party favors….and SO many other things! I have a feeling this box may turn up again in more projects!

Take some time today to get crafty! Your brain will thank you for it.

Thanks, Annette and Carolyn! The hardest part (for me) was finding a heavier weight double sided paper. I guess my local stores don't normally carry pretty double sided cardstock. I was able to find some though, so now I can make lots of fun boxes!
