Candy Cane gift card holders

Gift cards are such an easy and popular gift. Everyone loves a gift card! Give that gift a little personal touch by creating a custom gift card holder. We hope this idea inspires you.

We created these sweet candy cane gift card holders using strips glitter cardstock. Cut 5 strips of red and white glitter cardstock approximately 6″ long by .25″ wide. The strips do not need to be the exact size, we used varying widths. Alternate the strips to created a red and white stripe pattern. Punch or cut out into a candy cane shape and add to kraft cardstock.

We used our Red Glitter Cardstock and White Glitter cardstock.

Red Glitter Poinsettias

Do you love wrapping and dressing up gift packages? We sure do. Having an arsenal of specialty papers at our fingertips sure helps us add a little special flare. This project features our Red Glitter non-shed cardstock.

This gift is wrapped in patterned paper, tied with 1″ striped ribbon and embellished with a small handmade Red Glitter Poinsettia.

Our glitter cardstock has so many fantastic features! Among them is how well it cuts and folds. This paper is surprisingly malleable. We were able to easily add a curve to these poinsettia petals using a bone folder. When we layered and adhered these curved petals together a three dimensional flower began to bloom.

Thanks for visiting and happy wrapping!
