Our niece is a bit of a soccer nut/elite player! And she's entered The Gift Card Years - meaning she's a young teen and it's just just a safer choice to get her a gift card. Sigh.



To satisfy my own selfish needs to get her a "real" gift (I know, I know), I wanted to at least put the gift card into a special-for-her container, so when I found this soccer ball box on svgcuts.com I decided it fit the bill!



I asked her mom about her team colors (red and black), embossed the black papers with stars to tart it up a bit, and went for it. I had a hard time finding soccer-specific embellishments that were a little bit girly/celebratory and NOT sold in a quantity that would leave me with a bunch of stuff I'd likely not ever use. But this bubble from a travel-themed set seemed like it would work... plus it's ball-shaped!



I had the red excelsior to cushion the gift card. YEY! Really this whole thing was made with stash even though I was prepared to buy what I needed. I tied it up with a red ribbon to 1) give it a more gift-y look and 2) make it less likely to be peeked! I'll ship it top her in a couple of weeks.

Very impressive geometry and wonderful colors.  I thought this was going to be a 20-sided die from Dungeons & Dragons when I saw the thumbnail image on the main page--soccer never even crossed my mind!
