I was perusing the website of fab Vancouver paper and gift shop Paper Ya and found this post on how to make a 3-D message gift topper. Love it.
And if you live in Vancouver or have a chance to visit, make sure you make a special trip to Granville Island to check out Paper Ya. They have amazing papers from all over the world and some unique and lovely gifts and cards. Full disclosure: I worked there when I was in art school. It was a dream being surrounded by beautiful things all the time. Very inspiring.
