This year I spent some time making some gift card holders inspired by the amazing Kathy Orta over at Paper Phenomenon. She is absolutely amazing.
My dad is a big fan of Thomas Jefferson, so his got extra adornment of saying from the man himself. I included more on the inside as well, some about the importance of reading.
I love to use these red berries as embellishments. Its inexpensive too, since you can buy them in bunches from the craft stores.
Aren't these boxes adorable? I got them here.
I've used old photos as cards for a while now...sometimes family photos and sometimes ones that are just too charming to pass up.
Hope your holidays are merry and bright!
