I just love giving gift cards for Christmas – it makes it so easy for the person to choose something special that they really want! But I also love dressing them up so they are packaged in cute ways!
These little Colorful Stitched Gift Card Holders are so easy to make up – but they are so cute they would be sweet hung on the tree or used year after year!
All you need to do is slip in your favorite gift card and you have a gift all ready to go!
Here’s all you need to make your own!
- Kraft Card Stock paper
- Fabric scraps
- Glue or Fusible Webbing
- Gift Card
Cut your paper out for the tags. You’ll need a front and back piece for each tag. Measurements don’t have to be exact – but my back piece is 5″ x 3″ with the two top corners cut off at angles. The front piece should be 3″ x 4 1/2″ – at the top point, then angled down from there. You basically want your gift card to fit inside, and to be able to see the corner peeking out on one side.
Test out your measurements with your gift card.
Cut out a piece of fabric just a little smaller than the back piece. For the front – cut out scraps into decorative Christmas shapes. I did trees, ornaments, and presents – but anything goes! Lightly glue the fabric in place, or iron it in place with fusible webbing like I did. It held it in place really firmly while I sewed.
Sew around all the shapes. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just some simple stitching around each. You might need to increase the tension on the machine to get it to look nice.
Lay the front piece over the back and sew down the sides and bottom to hold the pieces together.
Finish off your holder by punching a hole in the top, and then knotting a ribbon through the hole. All done!
These would look really cute without the stitching too!
I hope you give them a try!
