How cute is this?

It's just like me put in a rant about gift cards, and then find something a little magical to make me eat my words.

It's this:


A sweet little gift box, filled with love, that I received from a lovely friend yesterday. It's made out of an old greeting card, which I think is just fantastic. Especially since I'm one of those people who can't throw out a single card I receive.

I'm actually going to pull this little box apart to see how she made it, and then when I get all my old cards together, I'm going to get to work and make a bunch myself (after I move of course).

Just think how excited I'll be to purchase gift cards now that I'll have a cute little homemade something to put them in. And recycled at that.

  1. I like this idea. It's great for all of the free cards that I get from organisations who want me to donate money to them. Have you heard of Etsy? It's like eBay, but for handmade items. It's another way to increase your income if you're inclined to be crafty.

  2. That is a cute box! Are you going to post instructions when you figure it out?

    Selling them is a good idea. There are lots of gift boxes for sale on ebay, too.
