Gift cards are that special kind of gift that everyone loves to receive, but can sometimes feel a little awkward to give. I personally LOVE receiving gift cards for the holidays – they give me a chance to go out and pick something all for me, which is a rare experience as a busy mom. I partnered with Target to bring you this slice of holiday cuteness as part of their #GiftCardCheer campaign.
A gift card can instantly become that perfect gift for your sister, or friend when it comes with a little extra love and care. It doesn’t take much, but stepping up the wrapping and presenting the card with a special note of thanks, a pre-paid babysitter, or a cup of coffee to enjoy while she is shopping will make the present seem thought out and given with love.
These star pinata boxes are a fun way to gussy up gift card wrapping, they allow you to hand off the card with a bit of festive flair and a few favorite tokens packed inside. To make star pinata gift card holders start with a paper star box. You’ll also need tissue paper and glue.
Cut the tissue paper into small pieces about 1/4 inch wide to make the pinata fringe. Glue in layers around the star, on the sides and over the top.
Stuff with confetti, tissues, a Target GiftCard® and a token or two of thoughtfulness. Tie with a length of thick wool yarn and hand out to your favorite of friends.
