I showed you a red & green Christmas one of these bad boys a few weeks ago, and now I’ve made one for my dear aunt’s birthday and want to share it too. This one is a bit different, I extended the one side to create a flap. Still the same (easy) stitch around the whole edge to seal it in, still a 5 – 7 minute project.
The Heather Bailey felt is still rocking my socks and I think I’ll be needing more as I continue building these gift card holders!
I should have done a button hole + button to seal this closed, but instead I just ironed it a lot so it lays flat on it’s own. The rose is one of the Prima ones – and darn if the YELLOW ones aren’t the ones I’ve already used up entirely!! I know – it’s shocking that pink + purple remain in stash, virtually untouched.
If you can think of a version of this you’d like to see feel free to give me a shout. I make no promises – but since I need to make about a dozen more over the next month or so I’m open to suggestion.

I think a horizontal one would be cute, too! Not like that’s a huge idea, but, you know, I’m throwing it out there. This one is super cute, May!
Just so adorable May. . .
Very nice! Have you tried steam pressing the crease to keep it folded? Use something like a dampened cotton towel between your project and the iron, and don’t slide your iron around, just press it over the fold and hold for a couple of seconds. I’m not sure if the steam will mat down your felt too much. Best to experiment on a scrap first, but steam pressing is a seamstress’s hidden talent ;).
Your aunt will love the this! Great color combo.
really like these! I need to get ambitious and do some of these! Maybe before christmas! What about using a neutral twill or canvas and stamping on it with staz-on ink? hmmmm?I think that would be fun!
Very, very cute!
Nearly always the men in the family that end up with gift cards. have you got any ideas for decorating a manly one?? ** Kate **
What stitch did you use? Very cute idea, I’ll have to try making some of these.
