Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Interactive Mailbox Gift Card Holders!

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you today! I really enjoy creating interactive cards – the element of surprise makes this type of card so unique and fun.

Today’s card project features not only an interactive design, but a gift card holder as well! I’m using the new Honey Bee Post Box Card Base dies to create a pocket that can open, revealing a surprise gift card inside!

There is a coordinating stamp set to go along with the Post Box die, which is the Love Enclosed set. This set is filled with cute sentiments, envelopes, and even decor elements for the mailbox! I used many of the stamps to decorate mine.

Inside the mailbox is the gift card holder – to make it super easy to get out of the post box, I added a little heart to the top. This also gives this mailbox an even cuter appearance! I die cut some pattern paper and one of our Nested Rectangles, then used the Lawn Fawn Gift Card Slots to cut the gift card holder. A little heart at the top gives a fun pull handle for the gift card to pop out of the mailbox!

I hope you love today’s sweet mailbox card and are inspired to create one for yourself!

  4. I love these cards Nina-Marie! Such a clever idea to use it as gift card holders! I also love any kind of shaped cards. The envelopes are the perfect embellishment. TFS

  5. I love snail mail and post office boxes and interactive cards. This projects combines all things I love. It is also the perfect size. What a great gift to give to teachers and others for valentines day. Now I want to go out and buy all the supplies to make this cute mail box. Thanks so much for sharing your idea!

    I wish SSS shipped quicker cause I don’t think it will get here in time. But maybe for next years gift.
