My niece is getting married soon and some family members threw her a shower over the weekend. Since it was out of state and I couldn't go, I picked up a gift card to tuck into and envelope to send off. Of course, in I always say "the packaging is half the gift". So here's the card and packaging I put together to hide the plastic gift card.
I sewed some pretties onto a piece of kraft cardstock, that I vintage stained.
Tucked in a sweet sentiment and signed my name and daughter's and daughter in law's. Wrapped a silk ribbon around fold and tied.
I placed the gift card in this little burlap sack that I finished off with more pretties including a vintage wedding button, and finished it off with a vintage handkerchief.
I then placed the whole process in a cello envelope...
...threw in some loose vintage faux pearls...
...and tied a teeny vintage bride pattern tag to the top with silk ribbon and seam binding. All this sweetness wrapped around an ugly plastic gift card...
