So here we arrive at my idea of a "Universal Gift Card". Simply put, this is a fun little gag gift taking a stab back at those companies that take advantage of us (and not ALL gift cards fall into this category, but most of the ones that I've received do).
This simple idea includes a printable template to give the ultimate gift card that never expires, has no maintenance fees or service charges, and everyone loves - CASH!
Step 1: Gather the Materials
- 8.5 x 11 white paper. I recommend a 110 lb card stock such as the one found here on Amazon.com. If you don't have card stock, plain paper will work but the end result will be flimsy and not really feel as much like a gift card as the card stock will.
- Glue Stick
- Sharp utility or hobby knife (optional, but recommended)
