Sweet Treat Gift Card Holder by Laura C

Want to make a simple gift card a little more special? Give it in this sweet little
box! You need, plain white Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock, American Crafts glitter cardstock, some Diamond Stickles, a red Copic marker, and your favorite strong adhesive.

Start with an 8 1/2" by 7" piece of white cardstock. You then score the 8 1/2" length at 1/2", 4", 4 1/2", and 8". Then turn and score the 7" length at 1 1/2", 2", 4 1/4", and 4 3/4". Trim with a scissors all areas not needed to form box (see pic below).

Now, fold on score lines and assemble box. Then, cut 1/4" pieces of the red and white glitter cardstock, apply adhesive to the box front, and apply pieces at an angle. Trim excess with scissors. Repeat for back of box. For flap and top, use red glitter cardstock cut to size and trim flap with a 1/4" strip of the white glitter cardstock. A small piece of velcro under the flap keeps it closed. The peppermint candy embellishment was a 1" circle that I drew some freehand red "swirls" with the copic marker #R46 the brush tip makes this super easy. Then I poked 2 small holes, and tied with thread, then I sparkled it up a bit with diamond stickles. I punched holes in the lid with my crop a dile, and tied on some tulle, so I can hang it from my tree for a Christmas surprise!

This little box could be decorated any way you want to make a gift card more special for any occasion!
