Gift Holders

Hola stampers!  Does everyone else have a shelf or two full of alterable items in stashed away somewhere?  Please say yes, it'll make me feel so much better. :)  Well, I was looking for something the other day and I accidentally knocked down some pencil holders that I purchased last year intending to use on some project or other.  I had a sudden lightbulb moment and came up with the idea of using them to hold a gift, like a tie perhaps...

It was the perfect fit!!  I tried placing one of Aldo's ties in there and it fit just right!  Yay!  Dad guess what you're getting for Father's Day?!?!

Now, the pink one was calling out to me and just beggin to be altered too, so I went to work adding some pizazz to it and came up with a feminine version for a graduation gift.

Isn't that raspberry color just perfect?!?!  I'm thinking of nestling a gift card in some white tissue paper so it won't rattle around in there or perhaps filling it with candy, or an ipod, or a new phone, or...  well, you get the idea.  I plan on getting more of these in holiday colors for Christmas.  They will be perfect for small gifts, or to fill with treats for friends.  Ack, I just love it when inspiration strikes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love this idea! Where do you buy these boxes?

I bought them at Wal-Mart during back to school season. I've also seen them at Staples and Office Depot.
