DIY gift card holder.

For the person who has everything or those nagging teenagers who ‘Just want cash, please!’ are these delightful-if I do say so myself-gift card and $$$ holders. When the loot is out, they make cute Christmas tree ornaments too.

What ‘cha need:

Step 1:

Print the PDF and cut out the pattern.

Use the lower part of the pattern to cut out a rectangle, as shown.

Step 2: 

"An Envelop made of Sponge"

Using the font on the pattern as a guide, stitch on lettering to the FRONT of the cardholder. A little embellishment in the corner–using French knots for berries and detached chain stitches for leaves–is a nice touch. 

Step 3:

Next, position the rectangle on the back of the tag and blanket stitch around, keeping its width at 1/4″.

Tuck the stash in the back pocket, and thread a bit of perle cotton to the top of the tag to hang on the tree, if desired.
