If you’re like me, you need some quick and easy gift card holders.  The Candy Cane Season bundle makes this holiday task a breeze.  I’ve also converted our sweet pillow boxes to hold the gift card.  So you don’t have to worry about scoring or constructing boxes, it’s all done for you.

I just LOVE punch bundles.  The Candy Cane Season bundle includes a 14 piece, 2-step , photopolymer stamp set with the coordinating Candy Cane Builder punch.  The punch actually punches not only the candy cane, but the sweet little bow.

One of the things that makes this project so quick and easy is the use of our Pillow Boxes.  There are 10 to a package, pre-made and scored.  They are a sweet polka dot craft, oh so versatile.  They can be used with so many different styles of designer series paper, break out that stash of pretty paper, and create a few.

I’ve converted the pillow box into a sweet gift card holder just by adding some simple scoring and stamping on Whisper White cardstock.

If you’re not the “gift card” type, but like to give cash instead, no worries, that will work as well. Also, since the insert pulls out of the box, the recipient could keep the pillow box to use as a candy treat holder later. That’s a great two-for.
