4 Creative Ways to Wrap a Gift Card | Family Economics
Gifting gift cards doesn’t have to be boring. There are several ways you can get creative with your gift wrapping this season. Gift cards are small which means you have several options on how to present them. Here are four of my favorite ideas:
1. Toilet paper roll: You have plenty of these on hand which makes it easy! Simply slip the gift card inside an empty toilet paper tube, wrap it up with tissue paper, tie ribbon onto the ends, and tie on a tag. Here are the step-by-step instructions.
2. CD case: I bet you have one lying around, right? First, remove all the labels and inserts from a CD case and then slip your gift card inside. Wrap up the case or get creative and make your own CD cover.
3. Mason jar: Actually, almost any jar would do. Carefully clean out your jar and make sure it’s completely dry. Once dry, place tissue paper in the jar with the gift card in the center (so it’s not visible). Then, cover the lid with fabric or paper and tie a ribbon and gift tag on.
4. Biggest box you can find: Why not have a little fun and keep the recipient guessing? You can even put something heavy inside to add some weight to the box.
