If you are getting ready to put your gift cards on the tree and discover that you've forgotten to pick up something to put those cards in, these are really quick to make. Here is one of the Christmas Gift Card Holders that I made.

They can also be used to put a motel key in to help keep track of it in your purse or pocket.
The holders are 4 inches wide and 7 inches top to bottom at the widest points. So I cut two pieces of coordinating fabric about 13 inches wide and about 15 inches long. Using Wonder Under or your favorite fusible, fuse the two pieces wrong sides together.
Cut into 4 inch strips. Using the template, cut out the holder.
Before sewing, cut the slit in the bottom part so the top part can tuck in. The slit is about 3/8" away from the "V" in the bottom of the holder and is about 2 inches long. These look like mini envelopes.
Press the bottom (with the slit) up as shown. Sew as directed and press the top flap down.
You have something decorative to hold any kind of card that you want to keep track of.
I made quite a few for a little something to tuck inside of Christmas cards.
I know it's almost Christmas. I honestly don't know where this month has gone. I have photos to show you of my trees and some of my other decorations. I sometimes feel that I'm still decorating until it's time to put it all away until next year.
Hope you are finding some time to stitch. I have been on a knitting kick since I got back from the quilt retreat right before Thanksgiving. I've knit several scarves and am participating in a Ravelry knit along.
I hope you are finding some time to do some stitching today.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
