Gift Card Holders and Paper Boxes and Homemade Gift Certificates

I caught some Gina K videos where she had made some gift card holders as well as some boxes made from cardstock.  I'm still fairly new to this whole cardmaking thing so I'm still learning.  These may have been around for years and nothing new for seasoned cardmakers but to me...well I was really keen to see if I could make them.  Below are some of the examples that I made up for Christmas 2011.

And finally I made up some homemade gift certificates this year for my niece to give my sister.  We thought they turned out pretty cute. 

Christmas 2011

As a Christmas gift for my brother this year I made up this box using Gina K's design.  I filled the box with cards that were made up using photographs that my brother had taken throughout the year.  I matted them, left the insides blank so he could use them for whatever occasion and presented them to him.  He loved them!
