Easy DIY Gift Card Holders

Just as I suspected, you and I are kindred folk...peas in a pod...one in the same...total twinsies. You feel me, or do you need more cliches? Because I can go all day. I loved seeing your responses to My Favorites yesterday, and loved that we had so much in common.

Today I'm sharing a sweet little DIY I whipped-up during last week's Icemageddon....cute gift card holders! I much prefer to give actual gifts, but for some people, gift cards are the only way to go. I'd rather someone (especially teachers) get exactly what they want, too. But I still like to jazz them up so they're fun to receive and open.

{SUPPLIES}

Felt
Pinking Shears or Scissors
Sewing machine or glue

First cut stockings out of felt using a template so the fronts and backs are the same size. Make sure they are wide enough to fit your gift card, too.

Then cut a bunch of circles in varying sizes and colors.

Stack the circles on the front piece of the stocking, then sew them in place. You could use glue too, but since I had nothing but time, I figured I'd work on my laughable sewing skills. I only sewed the middle of the circles so the sides would flap up for more dimension.

So they'd hang on the tree, I sewed a loop of felt to the back piece.

Final step is to sew the two pieces of the stocking together, leaving the top open.

A lot more fun than just an envelope, don't you think? And they won't get lost in the pile of presents under the tree.
