You could just give a gift card and put it in a card *YAWN*.

But why not put it in a cute little envelope of it's own?

3 different styles, all perfectly sized to hold your gift card
Or maybe to present a business card or magnet.

Thanks for all the kind words. 

Top right design is from the Origami Omnibus (I checked it out of the library and copied a few pages I really liked).  I added a band around each of those to keep em closed.  Paper is scrapbook paper and some tissue the Dollar Store wrapped my plates in.

On the left is a design from the Origami a day calendar (2008).  Not sure what day, it's still at work.  Paper is another piece of Dollar Store tissue and standard computer paper (inkjet) printed with this design (http://cp.c-ij.com/en/contents/2004/00173/index.html) but it didn't turn out because I ran out of one ink color. 

Bottom right is a traditional design, you can find it all over the web (a quick search brought up this link http://www.flying-pig.co.uk/pagesv/envelope.html) and it is the only one not made from a square.  Paper is same Dollar Store tissue as on the left and the rose is a magazine advertisement.

The tissue is very thin and would be good for inserting inside of a card.  The others would be great to just give as gifts or attach to the outside of a package.

And I just love, love, love the Canon website.  I found it a few years ago and it keeps getting better and better.
