Let me show you some cute ways to wrap your gift card after you’ve pick the perfect card for the perfect person. here are a few other fun ways to wrap presents. Clear box wrapping ideas How to tie the perfect bow
1. Use a jar or fast food cup
We all have jars, empty jam jars, mason jars, or you might have a beautiful vintage mason jar! Fill a jar with candy, then stick in your gift card, wrap with some cellophane and add a beautiful ribbon. yep it’s just that easy. to make it even easier ask for a fast-food cup at the place you have a gift card for and pop that gift card inside and wrap it up in cellophane. Some times when I’m wrapping a gift card I put something heavy inside to make them think there is something in it.
2. Popcorn box
My boys love going to movies but they’re in college so they don’t have money to go every weekend. I love taking a movie gift card and popping it inside a popcorn box. I found these at the party store or here on Amazon. you can fill the box with movie candy or extra money for the concession stands, it’s a darling way to present a movie to my boys
3. Dish towels
Dish towels can be used for more than just wiping up spills. they can be the most charming of wrapping paper. I love rolling the towel and tucking a gift card into the fold. These bloom towels are my favorite, they are huge, double sided and dry like a dream. use code MICHELLE for 15% off. super fun way to wrap a gift card
4. A beautiful vase with a gift card
I love a pretty vase and what could better than both, a vase and a gift card. Wrap it all up with cellophane and a big bow.
5. Yarn ball gift card
Yes you heard me right wrap yarn around the card until it’s as big as you want it to be. White yarn creates the most darling of snowballs. Add a fun bow and you have a unique way to disguise your gift card. it looks so cute if you did this for neighbor gifts, you could have a bowl of snowballs on your front table to hand out.
