Hello Honey Bee friends, and a very happy 2023 to you! Now that the holidays are over, I noticed that my birthday card stash is almost nonexistent! I’ve always adored the Gift Card Present Box Honey Cuts that was released a few holiday seasons ago. This set is absolutely perfect for any occasion and makes the most wonderful gift card holder too! I’ve made this look current by adding a hot foiled sentiment from the Foil Script: Wishes set. Check out the details!
I used some of my most favorite (and hoarded!) paper from the Summer Stems paper pad to die cut the pieces of the Gift Card Present Box. I used Bee Creative glue on the tabs to adhere the front and back together. I die cut the gift card insert from white cardstock. The box top is die cut with paper from the Gingham Galore Spring paper pad. I folded it at the score line and adhered the gift card holder inside the box top. (Note: just add glue to the top of the gift card holder to keep the box top open at the bottom.)
Here’s a look at the gift card insert as it is opened. There is plenty of room on the back of the insert to write a greeting! (I attached the gift card with a small glue dot.)
Next I die cut the pieces of the box (also in the Gift Card Present Box die set) from coordinating felt. I have lots of this wonderful wool felt in my stash! I definitely recommend using the wool felt, if at all possible, as it die cuts beautifully and holds its shape well. I used glue dots and double sided sticky red tape to adhere the bow together and add the pieces to the box.
NOTE: Because of the bulk of the wool felt, I found that the die cut piece that wraps around the middle of the bow wouldn’t reach around the bow. So I die cut another ribbon strip of felt and then wrapped that around the middle of the box and cut off the excess.
Now, if you do not have any wool, just use some coordinating cardstock for your bow! It will be just as beautiful!
I used rose gold Glimmer foil and my Glimmer Hot Foil System to foil the sentiment from the Foil Script: Wishes set. The cardstock I used is Glimmer Specialty Cardstock, which is ultra smooth, and foils like a dream! I used the coordinating die cut cut out the sentiment. Some thick foam dots popped it up for dimension. I added a few sparkly gem stickers from the Marvelous Moments gem stickers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my post today and hope you are inspired to give this a try! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful, and crafty, 2023 so far!
