Making gift cards and/or gift certificates doesn't have to be impersonal. There are a lot of great templates our there to make great homemade holders and envelopes,
I love this Watering Can holder, just the thing for a garden gift or a gift for a gardener
Watering Cam template- So easy just print onto some silver cardstock and cut out! Perfect for a gift card, gift certificate or a packet of seeds
Tool Box Gift Card Holder Great gift card holder for a DIY'er or dad or housewarming
General Gift Card holder template- try getting a tad creative and print out a picture of the person recieving the gift and make your holder or envelope out of that! Or try Angry Chicken's envelope design to make an envelope for your gift card or certificate!
