These gift card holders are quick to make with a few scraps of felt, two buttons and some string or twine.Once you've got the basic pattern cut out, you can embellish to your heart's content.
And then fill them up. Gift cards are the obvious filler but what about "coupons" for things like babysitting, or dish washing or lawn mowing? Neighbors, friends, spouses all appreciate coupons ;)
Again, I can't figure out how to add pdfs to blogger (if you know, email me) so I posted the pdf here.
