This morning on the Today Show, they were discussing if it is ‘ok’ to recycle gifts. (Here’s the Today Show article, and their rules for regifting.)

I typically don’t recycle gifts. But I am guilty of recycling gift cards.

This is the season for gift cards, so if you have stamping or scrapbooking supplies… this one is for you.

Let me start off by saying that I’m not a bad person.

I really appreciate someone giving me a gift card.

Here’s the issue…

Front of card

Inside of card

Yep, you can do it too.

Have fun making your own gift card holders.
