At work each year we do a “Secret Santa” where we are each tasked with buying one other person in the company a gift. The company pays, but we have to go and get it.
This year one of the girls wanted a voucher from Kalahari.net – great idea, but boring to unwrap. So I decided to get a bit creative.
Once I got over my reluctance to cut up a book, here is what I did:
1. Found a book in my cupboard that I was NEVER going to read. Thankfully it had a beautiful red hard cover under the paper sleeve.
2. Used my craft knife and metal ruler to cut holes in about ¾ the pages.
3. Made a “card” out of one of the pieces of paper that I had cut out.
4. Put the voucher in the hole in the book, and tied it up with a bit of string.
I am really happy with the way it turned out and think it is a pretty way to wrap up a voucher for books.
