Thank you to J. Jill for sponsoring this post and giveaway, DIY Repurposed Gift Card Holder. All opinions are 100% my own.
I am so excited to a) show you how to make a DIY gift card holder out of a brown paper bag, and b) give one lucky winner this DIY gift card holder along with a $100 J. Jill gift card! I was lucky enough to celebrate the J. Jill opening at the Shops at Mission Viejo the other day. It was a lovely event where I got to peruse the beautiful store, meet some amazing people, and try on the clothes! BUT! More on that and the giveaway in a minute… first, let me show you how to make this upcycled gift card holder.
- Brown Paper Bag
- Scissors or Paper Cutter
- Decorative Tape and Washi Tape
Any paper bag will do. The one pictured here will make four gift card holders.
First, I cut out a rectangle (approximately 4”X9”) and folded it into thirds as shown. The top flap should be shorter than the lower flap. Leave a small gap in between the flaps.
Tape down the top flap with Washi tape, and trim the bottom edge. I used the tape I had left over from my Washi Tape Gift Wrapping idea.
Next, add two more strips of Washi tape all the way around the bottom half.
Insert the gift card.
Wrap another two strips around the top flap all the way around the holder to close it.
I added more sparkly decorative tape, left over from my 12 Days of Christmas mini tree, on the front as well.
Sooooo, inside is a $100 gift card to J.Jill and one of you is going to win it!
Jill’s beautiful collections are designed for the women who lead rich, full lives. Additionally, to celebrate the opening, J. Jill made donations to their Orange County-based Compassion Fund Partner: Laura’s House. Laura’s House is committed to changing social beliefs, attitudes and the behaviors that perpetuate domestic violence while creating a safe space in which to empower individuals and families affected by abuse.
My visit was so much fun. The store was beautiful.
The clothes were just my style… comfy with a lot of neutral colors.
There was a great selection of scarves and other accessories.
I also loved the jewelry.
Now for the giveaway! Good luck! The winner will be chosen on Monday, December 15th at 12:00 AM.
