gift card holder.

I'm not a scrapbooker - I've never had the time, patience, or desire to absorb myself in that hobby. I don't make cards, either, for the same reasons.

But sometimes I like to play around a little with making something out of scrapbooking supplies, most often in the form of invitations. This time, though, I decided to do something a little different - a gift card holder.

I made this to go with a graduation gift. Normally, I'm not a big fan of giving gift cards (they often seem unoriginal to me), but sometimes they're just the best option, so I thought this might be a fun way to dress it up a little and put a personal spin on it.

The quote on the inside is one of my favorites:

I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well. - Diane Ackerman


  1. How cute, I love the polka dots! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Aw! So cute and creative! :)
    Great job!

  3. Like you said, sometimes a gift card is just the most appropriate gift, but w/your idea you put that extra thought and time into something special. I like the idea of adding an inspiring quote, too.


Thanks for taking the time to visit, and comment!
