Make It :: Gift Card Yarn Bombs


I bet you’re well into holiday shopping mode (or maybe panic because you feel behind? Yeah, I’m there too).  The truth is that gift cards often make a great gift choice because your recipient will be able to use it to buy something they truly want. People like being gifted gift cards. And yes, they make gift giving a bit easier on you too, which is a nice bonus.

I’ve shared my thoughts with you before on the importance of wrapping a gift card in a thoughtful way and today I’ve teamed up with Target to share more DIY gift card wrapping inspiration for their #GiftCardCheer campaign. So, if you’re wondering how to wrap a gift card in a thoughtful way, you’ll love this simple idea.

Gift cards make great gifts, we’ve agreed on that (right?). But what makes them even better is when you make the recipient work for it … just  little. When I was younger my aunt used to wrap the tiny box in the bigger box, inside of the bigger box. You never knew when the wrapping was going to end. I thought it was so much fun and wanted to make my own version of that.

Meet, the gift card yarn bomb.

Secure the gift card by tying the yarn around it and knotting it. Then, you will begin wrapping away.

You will want to basically remake the yarn ball with the gift card now at its center. You can make this as big as you’d like. The bigger you make it, the longer it will take your recipient to unravel.

    I showed a friend of mine this wrapping idea and she loved it! Within minutes she began wrapping her first bomb of the season. I will be wrapping a couple myself. This is a great idea!

    Very cute and fun idea. My mother likes to knit baby blankets for the church and I always try to find a different way to give her gift cards at Christmas time, whether it’s a wreath, tree, or in a wallet but this year I am giving her yarn bombs. I have gotten 4 different color yarns ( full skeins) and am going to ask her to make something with the yarn and NOT tell her there is anything inside them so,when she gets to the end she will be so surprised.
