|Then I thought of the Altoid containers, like the one Alpha Mom made here! She used hers for nuts and bolts with a tool case, but I know I've seen them as gift card holders floating around blogdom!|
So I made one for my MIL who lives out of state! A gift card was looking like the most likely present... And I'm going to just tape it up and mail it as is!
If you don't know how to make one of these snobby little gift card holders, it's so easy. Empty an Altoids tin and wipe it out.
The gift card JUST fits inside.
Then I made a little card to place inside. I layered shredded paper, then the Mimi's Cafe card, then my card. As you can see from the below picture, I also cut paper to fit the inside lid. I don't have a picture, but I did it for the bottom of the box too. Modge Podge worked fabulously to apply it.
I made the top card to act exactly as the label and I'm mailing it out tomorrow, so I'll let you know what it costs. (But I can't imagine it'll be more than a couple dollars.)
That's not all!
We have a Mother's Day gift for you too!
