Default Suggestions on how to package a group of gift cards???

Need HELP trying to figure out how to "package" a group of gift cards that I'm giving my niece for her 21st birthday. I have one week to figure something out. It is five gift cards to various restaurants since she is off at college and doesn't like to cook. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could create something nice/pretty to place them in? She is coming in town for her birthday so I don't have to mail them to her. Thanks!!

I posted this in my gallery. If you use three envelopes you could put a gift card in each slot and a note from you in the other.!

Thank you for the suggestion. I went to your gallery and read the instructions. Is the envelopes being held to the cardstock with mono adhesive?

For my birthday a couple weeks ago, my DH gave me flowers. Upon closer inspection, within the flowers, were picks with 6 gift cards in their envelopes attached to them. I thought this was very clever. You could give flowers or a plant for her home, and do the same thing.
Just a thought..........

Default gift card holder

Try making a quint-fold gift card! I just made and sold about 15 tri-fold gift card holders at a show this weekend. I used an 8x11 piece of paper, but I'd go with a 12x12 if I were doing a five-fold. I cut the top corners off mine to make it resemble a tag, then slipped a ribbon through the hole on top to hold it all together. Used my slit punch to punch holes to hold the cards in. Does that make sense? I'll try to upload one later today! Good luck

Thanks for the suggestions. They are all very clever! Now I have a week to play with those ideals. I knew how to make a gift card holder for one but not for five. All of y'all are sooooo clever. Thanks for the help!!
