Gift cards are one of my favorite things, you guys. I know some people don’t love to give gift cards because they feel like it isn’t personal or thoughtful, but I totally disagree. Especially if you go to the effort to choose a gift card to somewhere that the person you’re buying for LOVES to shop or eat at. It’s the gift of an experience! One thing that is kind of a challenge though, is wrapping the gift cards. You can put them in a card, but sometimes you want to do something a little different. That’s where this gift card wreath comes in!

I just got the new Cricut Explore Air 2 Wisteria bundle, and I wanted to use it to make some awesome gift card holders. To anyone unfamiliar with Cricut bundles: they are basically a sampling of really fun materials that come with the machine! This Wisteria bundle is full of sparkly things like holographic glitter Iron On, a foil-embossed paper pack, exclusive Iron On designs, and some of the new SportFlex Iron On. It’s really great to have a variety of things to try out when you get a new machine. I thought it would be fun to make a wreath out of little gift card envelopes. Some of them have gift cards in them, the others have notes inside with things that you love about the person, or Thank You notes for different things, that kind of stuff. I made the gift card envelopes with foil embossed paper and I cut some paper flowers to embellish it with as well.

This 3D flower has a lot of parts. Since I was making a few of them I decided to Ungroup the parts and just cut the petals first, then cut the pistils next. (I opted not to cut leaves.)
Make sure your machine is set to Card Stock.
Cut! Repeat this step again for the pistils.
Roll the pistils up and secure with tacky glue as you go.
Bend the petals and glue it all together.
