This is the last in a series of last minute gift ideas from ’round the Web counting down to the 25th of December. All the projects can be done very quickly and require minimal supplies. Let us know if you do any of these projects. Enjoy!

The ultimate in last minute holiday gifts is the gift card. I have to tell you, I’m a fan of the gift card. I love getting them and I love giving them. You can be pretty creative – choosing the perfect locale for each recipient. From Hello, My Name is Heather, our final Last Minute Holiday Gift is a how-to to create a gift box for a gift card.

Materials List
• 8.5” x 11“ or larger double-sided cardstock
• glue stick
• paper-scoring tool
• Xacto knife
• embellishments of your choice

For the glue, we recommend EcoGlue. It’s eco friendly and has a bit more grab than a glue stick. If you’re going to go to the trouble, might as well make the box last. Heather has a free pattern for these adorable boxes that can be as creative as you want to make them. She also has a beautiful collection of craft papers.

There you have it! Five great last minute gifts from around the internet. From a clever biz card holder, to fun and funky jewelry, to making the ultimate in last minute gifts personal, we hope this series has been helpful. If you do any of these projects, we’d love to see photos.
