Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? Maybe your special loved one wants flowers and candy, but there’s also a good chance that they want a gift card to their favorite place! I know many people who do not like giving gift cards because they see them as an impersonal gift. Whenever I give a gift card, I find that adding a handmade element softens the impersonalization of a gift card. Today I’m breaking out the Cricut Cuttlebug to show you how to make this cute DIY Paper Gift Card Holder.
To customize this project, choose card stock that aligns with the holiday or the recipient’s favorite colors.
