Slotted Gift Box

My daughter's dance team is having lots of fun with their "Secret Santa" exchange. It's a fun way to exchange Christmas gifts without that person knowing who is giving them their gifts. Once a week until Christmas vacation, the girls are secretly playing "Santa" to one of their teammates. The gifts are only $5.00 each for five weeks, so it's not that bad. Anyway, we bought a $5 gift card to give and of course I didn't want to put it in just a plain ol' envelope! Instead, I made a special box for the gift card... I call it the "Slotted Gift Box."

The gift card is inserted into a slot inside the box and when the box is opened, the card is displayed upright. It lays flat when you close it. It's a fun way to hold a gift card or photo or even just a note. In front of the card is a perfect spot to write "to" and "from" and the amount of the gift card. I hope she likes her gift... and the box.
