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”



  • 2- 3.5″ x 8″ pieces of cotton woven material
  • 1- 3.5″ x 6″ piece of cotton woven material for POCKET
  • Ribbon:3/8″ grosgrain, 1-6″ and 1-2.5″ piece


1~Cut all pieces out 


2 ~ Fold pocket piece in half with Right Side OUT and Topstitch along the folded edge.

3~ Baste Pocket on RIGHT side of one end of ONE 3.5″ x 8″ piece.  I baste 1/8″ from edge

4~Baste 2.5″ ribbon folded as pictured onto pocket end and baste 6″ ribbon folded as pictured on the other end


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.


6~Trim corners slightly and TURN

7~Tuck in seam allowances at the opening and topstitch all the way around using a 1/8″ Seam Allowance.


VIOLA!  You are done! 😀
