Wedding Cake Thank You

Happy Tuesday!  Can you believe February is already nearly over?!? 

This past weekend, my sweetie and I had a reception here in town to celebrate our destination wedding last month.  Someone who has been very close to my sweetie's family for a number of years offered to make our wedding cake and we gladly took her up on the offer.  We wanted to do something for her as a thank you and decided to get her a gift card to a good restaurant so that she and her husband can go and enjoy a date night.

I made a gift card holder like this one before, that you can see HERE.  I made a standard A2 size card.  Then I took a piece of 5.25 x 11 cardstock and scored it at 4, 5.5 and 7 inches.  I made a slit along the scoreline at 5.5 inches that was just a little wider than the gift card, then zigzag folded the paper and glued it inside the card.  That way the gift card will be held in the middle of the card.

Have a great week!!
