Tutorial: Gift Card Holder

Need something a little personal to put your gift card in for someone?  This is super simple.  Took me all of 10 minutes to cut and make it.  And makes a great use of your scraps!   It would also hang on your tree at christmas or be used as a “gift TAG”

5~ Align the other outer 3.5″ x 8″ piece on top of the pocket/ribbon piece with RIGHT sides TOGETHER!
I start about 1″ from corner on long side where there is NO pocket. Use a 1/4″ Seam allowance and stop after leaving about a 2″ opening.
