I love giving presents to our family and friends (and even strangers!) for Christmas. Yes, I know that’s not what the season is all about, but non the less it’s the “giving” part of it that I enjoy.
While I would prefer to give an actual gift, there are so many people that are hard to buy for. Personally, I’d rather get something useful than something that will end up in the junk drawer. I know it’s the thought that counts. I get that. But I feel like it’s just wasteful.
So for those that are hard to buy for, or don’t know what they want, a gift card is the way to go. Then, they can choose whatever they want and be happy about it!
Just because you’re giving a gift card to someone for the holidays, doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Here’s a fun way to dress up your gift card!
Toilet Paper Snowman Decoration & Gift Card Holder
First, you’ll need to gather some supplies.
- 4 rolls of toilet paper
- white tissue paper
- black tissue paper
- black foam sheet
- orange foam sheet
Everything can be found at the craft store, except the toilet paper, obviously.
Step 1: Use a sheet of tissue paper to wrap each toilet paper roll. You’ll end up with 3 white and 1 black.
Step 2: Cut a circle out of the black foam sheet. Slightly larger than the size of your toilet paper. Then, cut 2 medium circles (for the eyes), 3 smaller round circles (for the buttons) and 4-5 smaller circles (for the mouth).
Step 3: Use the orange foam sheet to cute out a “nose”.
Step 4: Stack your snowman (white rolls), using the tape to secure each roll.
Step 5: In between your top white roll and your black roll, add the large circle you’ve cut out. This is where you’d sneak in your gift card!
Step 6: Use tape (or glue) to add on the buttons, eyes, nose, and mouth.
Now you have a super cute decoration idea (that would look perfect in the bathroom!) that you can use to give a gift card too. They’ll be surprised to see it tucked under his hat! Maybe leave just a corner of the card peaking out? So that they don’t miss it.
Make sure you use a paper or plastic gift bag to wrap it up, before gifting it.
