Gift card holder: folded w/flower

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.

Happy Crafting!

  1. 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!

  2. 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 ;).

  3. 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!

  4. Nearly always the men in the family that end up with gift cards. have you got any ideas for decorating a manly one?? ** Kate **
