Pillow Box Gift card Holders

We will be making this fun Pillow Box at Stamp Camp this week end.  It is such a fun project.  Guess what its made from..... Toilet paper rolls!  I saw a blogger make them a long time ago and always had them in the back of my mind, but today they came to the front and here we are. 
And, the new paper stacks from the Holiday Catalog just happen to be the perfect size for my toilet paper rolls! Yea!  Less prep for me is always good. 
Here is the blog I found them at.

Start with your toilet paper roll and add sticky strip to the ends.

Add sticky strip to the end of the paper strip.

Flatten the tube.

See, perfect size for a gift card.   You now need to shape the ends by just pushing down in the center on each side. 

You can embellish just about any way you want.  I went with a rosette.  I haven't made one in quite a while  Here is a refresher if you haven't made one in a while either.  Punch out two scallop circles.  Score in half between each scallop as shown here.  I used the 2 3/8 inch punch.

Snip between a scallop to the center on both scallops. 

 Fan fold the scallops.

Add an adhesive to the ends of one of the scallops, then glue them together. 

Done.  To add the "no peeking" circle to my scallop rosette, I layered three dimensionals on top of one another to make them even thicker.
