I of­ten give my grand­chil­dren gift vouch­ers for Christ­mas, but want to wrap them nicely. Do you have any sug­ges­tions?

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q & A -

Sarah says: I have found the per­fect die that is ideal for cre­at­ing a gift voucher holder within a card. The We R Mem­ory Keep­ers Pop Up Gift Box Die by Amer­i­can Crafts is a very sim­ple and clever so­lu­tion. You sim­ply die-cut three sep­a­rate pieces, then fol­low the in­struc­tions pro­vided to make this very cute gift box that pops out of the in­side of a card. Dou­ble-sided pa­per works well for this, but as you wanted an idea for chil­dren, I’ve used two sheets from the Helz Cup­pled­itch Won­der­land 12x12 Pa­per Pack, which I glued back sides to­gether be­fore die-cut­ting the pieces out. I used a 135x175mm base card and dec­o­rated it with pa­pers and stick­ers from the Won­der­land col­lec­tion. Th­ese box cards are so speedy to make and they would be per­fect for sell­ing at craft stalls too. The die is avail­able at www.pa­per­wishes.com and Won­der­land by Helz Cup­pled­itch is avail­able at Hob­by­craft.
