Please go over to Happy Hooligans for the full tutorial but here is a shortened version which you might be interested in and also think it is such a great idea. By the way, Happy Hooligans looks like a site that is just up my alley and I must go back there when I have a chance and have a good look around.
Empty your can and wash it out thoroughly. Yours will look like this plus the bottom will still be slightly attached.
Scrunch up some tissue paper or whatever you want to use, put it in the can and add the gift card.
Then glue the bottom of the can back on with a glue gun and do a better job than I did as I haven't used mine for many years and forgot how fiddly they were. Don't be too fussy as the gift recipient will be too busy trying to work out what is in the can and hopefully will be pulling the tab instead of looking at the mess on the bottom of the can. Ha ha!
Then wrap up your present in whatever type of paper you have on hand. I used brown paper as that is what I have but I didn't do a terribly good job of wrapping it as I am in a bit of a hurry sewing for my granddaughters at the moment and just wanted to let you know about this way to wrap up a gift card as I know some of you will be giving them this Christmas. Isn't it fun! So head over to the 'proper' tutorial and get started.
There is still time to say hello to this busy spider though who is waiting for his dinner to come along I guess. Aren't they fascinating but I don't get too close .....just in case. :-)
13 sleeps till my grandchildren arrive ~and their parents as well of course.
Have a great week everyone!
