Gift Card Tin

Welcome.  There were a few teenagers that we needed to shop for, for Christmas, and well, I don't really know what they want.  So, we purchased a few gift cards.  But now, how do I present the gift cards?  I don't want it be to be lame, or just stupid.  So, here is what I came up with...
I took a hinge lid tin, and fastened the gift card to the top.  I used scraps of pattern paper I already had on hand to decorate.  I also included a 'tag' to the inside.  (To see another 'zipper' gift card holder, click here.)
Here is the outside:

I used cherry cobbler card stock for the base.  The gift card is sandwiched under the pool party card stock.  I used some scrap pattern paper I had left over from our holiday card.  I stamped the pointing finger to draw attention to the 'zipper'.  I found this wonderfully striped washi tape, so I added that on top of the 'zipper'.   
Here is the inside of the lid:

I adhered the pattern paper to the very vanilla card stock before I used a die to cut the card stock.  I stamped the greeting in basic black classic ink.  I used scraps of pattern paper from the Happy Trails line of Glitz paper to cover the Hershey's chocolates.  (To see the holiday card I made with this same pattern paper, click here.)
Thank you for stopping by.  Tomorrow, I'll share an altered bag I decorated for my oldest grandchild.  Hope to have you stop by.  

Happy Crafting!  hugs, Sharon W.
