10 Minute Gift Card Holder Tutorial - Rae Gun Ramblings
Hi gang, Marissa here visiting from Rae Gun Ramblings I’m super excited to be back here hanging out and sharing a nice quickie scrap busting Christmas gift idea. If you don’t know me yet I blog about all kinds of crafty types of things as well as bookish stuff. I love sharing my favorite new books and creations. I also Etsy full time and I’m having a crazy huge sale and giveaway if you know any one with or having a baby :)
I’m one of those people that hate giving generic gifts. When I take the time to buy or make something for someone I want them to like it. But some times you just can’t think of a great gift and as much as you know that a gift card will be appreciated it just feels so impersonal. So why not whip up a handmade gift card case that can be used later for business cards or holding other cards.

Making your own gift card holds is super fast and easy. I made up a few just to have on hand but you can totally get creative and personalize them by picking out fabrics that remind you of your recipient or adding their name or a fun design in iron-on vinyl.

  1. Start off with two pieces of fabric 5 X 9 inches each.
  2. With right sides together sew around all the edges with a 3/8 inch seam allowance leaving a small gap at the bottom edge of of of the long sides.
  3. Turn right side out and Iron.
  4. Fold the edges up and pin. I like to hold a gift card or credit card just for the right side to gauge how much of a fold to take (about 2 inches).
  5. Sew along both long sides making sure to back stitch.
  6. Tie fill with a gift card and time with some ribbon or trim and gift.
