This is the second in an occasional series of green craft projects, allowing us to raid our stashes and upcycle/recycle normal household materials into Somerset loveliness.
Gift cards can make wonderful presents but sometimes seem a bit impersonal. A lovely handmade gift card holder shows the recipient that you can be practical, thoughtful, AND creative. Making your gift card holder from an upcycled toilet tissue tube shows your respect for the environment, too.
For this swap you will recycle a toilet tissue tube and make your partner one gift card holder in the Somerset Style. Decorate the outside of a flattened tube using paint, ink, paper, fiber, and/or fabric to create unique and interesting layers. Embellish with words, game pieces, jewelry bits, flowers, tags, glitter, lace, fabric, beads, or anything Somerset-like. Add a handle made of fiber or wire and close the bottom securely. Voila! A lovely gift card holder that adds your special touch.
Handle is optional. You may omit that if it fits better with your design.
Theme and color palette is Sender’s Choice. Craft with the care and quality we’ve all come to associate with Somerset Publications.
