I made the box out of decorative cardstock leftovers using my Crafter's Companion. Then I made a fun gift card holder out of an Envelope!

I made these Gift Card-a-lope's last Christmas as well, except I cut off the top right side envelope flap and put a piece of cardstock over it for the card (Bo Bunny papers), closing off the opening on the right side. I left it a little taller to peek out the top when closed. I used a ribbon in place of the belly band, and made an envelope out of cardstock by laying the card on the it caddycorner and wrapping the cardstock around the card. I cut off the excess and glue together the bottom & side edges like an envelope. I added an embossed star to the flap, and the mix-matched corners on the envelope made it look like you were opening some fun!
