Hi there! I’m Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous® and I’m going to share a super easy up cycled gift card holder with you today! This little gift card holder is perfect for any gift giving occasion and a great way to reuse something that is normally discarded.

Altoids Gift Card Holder

Isn’t it the cutest little box ever? Well, its actually an Altoids box. And it just happens to be the PERFECT size for almost all gift cards! And as I recently learned from this awesome Teacher Appreciation post, teachers love gift cards. That way they don’t get overwhelmed with mugs, rulers, and apples. So when my kiddos get old enough for school, I think I’m going to stick to gift cards.

To make this cute little Altoids gift card holder, I simply cut 2 pieces of paper to 2 1/8″ by 3 3/8″ and rounded the corners. Then decoupaged one piece of paper to the top of the Altoids box and the second piece of paper to the bottom of the Altoids box. Make sure to do a coat of decoupage medium over the top of the paper to seal it. Then when its dry, spray with a clear sealer. Then tuck your gift card inside and embellish as you want!

Another fun thing about this craft, is your kid{s} can help you make them for their teachers!

I put an iTunes gift card in the Altoids case and then put “You Rock” on the gift tag. I thought it kind of went with the image on the iTunes card.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Teacher Appreciation gift card holder idea! I had a blast sharing it with you today. I absolutely love to craft, so if you’re looking for more Craft Ideas, stop by Craftaholics Anonymous® and say hi! I’d love to meet you!
