DIY Frosty Gift Card Holder

Today we'll create a quick & easy DIY Frosty Gift Card Holder. Gift cards are great gifts, however, they are even more special if they are "wrapped" in a delightful way. Today's "wrap" is based on the Pillow Boxes...they come in packs of ten--so you can really make a great supply to have on hand at a moment's notice. Here's today's "wrap." Pillow box GCH - 2

To form the pillow box, simply squeeze the sides until the box pops open and then fold on the score lines to form the flaps that close both ends.

The white sparkly pine is created with the Peaceful Bough stamp set and embossed with the new Shimmery White embossing powder...the sparkle is quite enchanting. Top it off with a sparkly pine cone, tie a delightful cherry striped ribbon around the box and you are ready for giving! Here's a close up of the pine and pine cone. Pillow box gch 1 - close up
