Idea for Thursday: mini book page turned gift card holder


I like turning things into gift card holders. I like gift cards too. They can be fun, pretty, and a HECK of a lot better in shipping fees! So I have been leaning towards making the presentation special. So I’m not just thrusting cash at somebody, but showing that I took time and thought about it…

I saw this super cool Coffee Cup Album (FREE) kit by Wilna over at two peas. I strongly suggest checking out the coolness there. I downloaded, thinking it looked awfully cool but then, what to do with it?

I’m not a mini-book girl 99.9% of the time, but I had other ideas. I printed off just one of the pages, cut it out, and sealed the bottom and open side (one side just folded) leaving the top open…

All I did was add a bit of stitching on one side, spritz a bit with some Chalkboard glimmer mist, edge in gold pen, and add a few do-dads to the front.

On the back I tested out my Copic markers along the edge… jury still out on those, but someday soon I’ll do a post about these ‘new to me’ pens.

and there you have it! A fun little gift card holder (or it could hold a note, and a tag, and/or jewelry or other small gift) made from a mini-book page. Wilna is quick becoming one of my ‘keep an eye on her’ digi designers. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

  1. Great use of this kit! Love Wilna’s fresh, happy designs – I’ve also got my eye on her ‘Fly’ minibook, et al.
