I’ve got two quick projects for you today. One you can make for yourself or give as a gift. The other can hold a gift ~ specifically, a gift card. First up is a gift card holder I made using an Altoid tin.
I keep these tins on hand when they are empty because they just beg to be dressed up and reused. Plus, you are recycling in the best way possible. I took some Christmas scrapbook paper and traced the inside bottom portion for sizing. I cut two pieces and this paper happened to be reversible so I got to use one piece of scrapbook paper.
Mod Podge one piece and put in the inside cover. I used craft scissors to cut a little more decoration into the one that was going on the outside top and then attached that with Mod Podge.
Once they dry, put a coat of Mod Podge over the top of both. The red of the tin works well for this particular project, but you could paint these with paint that works for metal. You could also apply ribbon around the base part, but I just left mine.
Best thing is that a gift card fits perfectly inside! The second project is using those pretty little decorative frames you can find in the dollar bins at Michaels. I’ve been picking up a few every so often.
I used the same scrapbook paper for the insert on this and then used the JOY scrabble tile letters I picked up at the antique store recently.
I applied them with hot glue, added a ribbon and you’ve got something to hang from a cabinet knob, door, as an ornament, just about anywhere. I found that the stands on these frames don’t do well being turned hence the ribbon.
Great little project to keep for your own décor or to give as a gift.
