Need creative idea to display gift cards

A dear friend is moving. I bought her 6 gift cards (to cover meals awhile she is unpacking). I don't want to just throw them in a card. Anu ideas on how to present them?

In a flower pot

I would buy a pretty flower pot, stuff a styrofoam ball into it and then cover it with tissue or dried moss. Then use sticky tac to tape to adhere the gift cards onto sticks from your yard or craft sticks. Poke the sticks into the pot and you have a bouquet of gift cards. Dress it up more with a ribbon and mix in candy bars or granola bars also affixed to sticks to have sweet treats to go along with the gift cards.

Take 2 pieces of 8x11 inch card stock and fold them in half the "hot dog" way. Glue them together around the outside edge of the card stock. On the outside make it look like a menu, something like "Mhiag's Cafe". Then on the inside cut slits to slide the cards in. Over the top of the card write "Italian" or "Mexican" or "Chinese" or whatever categories you bought cards from. It will be her own personal menu for her and her family to choose from.

I hope this makes sense.

-Painted flower pot stuffed with tissue paper, packing tape and a few sharpies and the cards

-Any container that will be useful to her

-Maybe a new bulletin board with the cards tacked on it. (you could even paint/decorate the edge of the bulletin board)

Great gift!

Before I read the flower pot idea, I was thinking that too. The other day a student gave a fellow teacher a cute flower pot filled with foam. Then there were little "stakes" in it. On each stake was like a little chocolate bar or something. Then there were a few fake flowers. It was so cute. It was the mother's way of saying thanks for putting up with my son all year. (I should get 6 of them!!)
Anyway, you could easily do the same thing. Rather than candy bars but on the gift cards.

My class one year brought in a bunch of gift cards and the mom in charge put them together in a gift box filled with cute paper shreds. She taped little sticks or straws on the back to help them stand in the paper shreds, and they were all different heights, so I opened that cool box and there was a whole bunch of standing cards. Cute!

Everyone's ideas are so creative I think I am going to have to go out and buy someone some gift cards.

All I could think of was making the face of a clock, attaching the gift cards and printing "Time to Eat" in the centre of the clock.

I love the flower pot ideas. I gave DS a bunch at Christmas. I taped them to a long piece of ribbon that he just kept on pulling out of the box. Not as creative as flower pot, but quicker if time is short.
