Some Christmas projects...part 2

As promised, I interrupt this regularly scheduled program for some more Christmas projects!
I find that more and more, the giving that I do includes gift cards, and the gift cards need holders.
I purchased two plain wooden boxes from Michael's.  One had a snowman on it, one a tree (all unfinished wood).  I removed the ribbon that came with it and replaced it with twine.
I received a lovely box in the mail from my scrappy friend Lynne because I had won it on her blog.  It was chocked full of winter and Christmas lovelies, so I immediately set about using them.
My first project:
Some paint, some paper, a few sequins, and a layer of glittery snow (hard to see, sorry).
With some coordinating tissue paper and a gift card inside, it went off to my husband's secretary!
My next:

For this project, I used an assortment of yummy LilyBee papers and flair from Michael's.  I also used a bit of washi and some sequins.  I love how this one turned out especially.  And I am not sure who it is going to yet.
How do you "wrap" gift cards?

Thanks for stopping by today!
