Last Minute Gifts

Hope you're all finding time to enjoy the holiday season!!  I've been doing some last minute crafting...I always end up with a few gifts of money and gift cards and I try to find some fun ways to "wrap" them.  This year I went with a project from a few years ago called an "Inside Out Box".  Click here for the original post with the how-to's.  Here's an example of the box done up for Christmas:

Remove the cover, and this is what's on the inside of the box:

Turn the box "inside out"...using the cover as the base for this stand-up greeting:

 I changed it up a bit to use as a money box.  I attached the snowman to the top of the cover:

And instead of attaching a character on the inside of the box, I wrapped some money around the stand in the center (you can tape the money to the "stand" if you want it to be more secure):

With a few tweaks you can use this same idea for gift cards...I'll show you a sample tomorrow!!
