This would be a great use for recycling your gift cards if you were someone who didnt want to keep them from year to year. I love to keep mine and reread the messages from my friends and family every year. This one also looks a little too labor intensive for me and there are a few tools that I dont have.

What a pretty necklace. When I first saw this I thought it was made from mother of pearl.Even better, it reuses old gift cards. What a clever idea!
