Everyone loves gift cards. When you receive one from your favorite store your mind instantly starts filling with different things you can buy. They're your best friend when you don't have cash or forget your credit card at home and give us a reason to buy something special for ourselves. That being said, they aren't really the easiest to "wrap". You can stick them in a card, but most of the time the fall out and it looks as though you didn't put much effort into it.
Luckily, I have the perfect solution to help you spice up your gift card gift wrap using the Silhouette Cameo.
While scrolling Pinterest I came across this pin and tutorial on one of my favorite bloggers. I realized that I didn't have the same supplies she used, but knew I could create a similar result using my Silhouette Cameo. I immediately set off to try and recreate it and I ended up being successful. I included a video below of my process if you are interested in watching how I created this folded tag.
I cut this shape out three times from some kraft cardstock. I also cut the interior portion out of some patterned papers to adhere inside later. For the front, I used some off-white cardstock to do some stamping on.
Tag #1 // Sending Warm Winter Wishes
I wanted to keep my first tag simple so I stamped my greeting in the bottom corner in a brown ink. I also stamped some leaves from my Poinsettia stamp set on to some cardstock and trimmed them out. I adhered them above the sentiment with some foam tape and added three red jewels.
Tag #2 // Tis' the Season
One of my favorite elements from my Christmas Critters stamp is the solid tree image towards the top. There are seriously so many possibilities for it! I knew I wanted to use it for one of my tag designs, so I got started by stamping it in a light green ink. Next, I stamped my greeting from an Avery Elle stamp set so I would know where to place my ornaments which I stamped later in red. Lastly, I topped the tree off with a yellow star. Super cute, simple, and colorful!
Tag #3 // Ho Ho Ho
For my last tag I wanted to do something different. I searched through my stash for some holiday words and came across a stamp from MFT. I used the "ho ho ho" stamp to create a border at the bottom of my tag in a light green. I stamped my smallest poinsettia and center from my set, trimmed them out, and I was finished.
I seriously couldn't believe how quickly these came together once I had all the pieces cut out. I guess because they are a much smaller scale than a card it is much easier to fill up the space!
