Four Creative Ways to Wrap Gift Cards

My nieces and nephews are all at the age where they prefer to receive gift cards or money for any gift giving situation. I completely understand this, but my kids are still little so my husband and I continue to enjoy shopping for actual gifts. Anyway, for Christmas, my husband and I thought it would be really funny if we got them the gift cards they wanted, but then we wrapped them all up in funny ways. You know, so everyone else could enjoy it too.

Gift one. 8 year old nephew got a Toys R Us gift card in a teddy bear.
Difficulty level for you: Easy
Difficulty level for them: Mildly entertaining

1) Locate a bear or other stuffed animal headed for donation.
2) Cut an opening right along the seam on the back of the bear.
3) Shove gift card in the bear. Be sure to surround it with stuffing so it isn't immediately noticeable.
4) Sew the seam back up.

Gift two. 11 year old niece got a Macy's gift card in a big old ball of Saran Wrap.
