Create these felt mitten gift card holders to present your gift in a cute way.

Here’s one of my easy gifts I’ve been working on!  I wanted something cute to put gift cards in since I’ll be giving a few gift cards this year.  I came up with the felt mitten idea which can be hung on the Christmas tree as well!  I had most of the supplies on hand already.  Here’s how I did it:

Supplies:

  • Felt piece (dollar store)
  • Fabric snowflake (dollar store)
  • Ric rac
  • Christmas tree cut from a piece of fabric I had
  • Sparkly button (from an old hair elastic)
  • Needle & thread
  • Ribbon (for the mitten to hang on the tree)

Basically, I just drew a mitten shape on a scrap piece of paper that was big enough to fit a gift card, then traced it onto the felt.  Cut it out, then decorated the one side with whatever I could find around the house with fabric glue and thread!  After the one side was decorated, I put the two mitten pieces together by hand stitching them together.  You could use a sewing machine, but I liked the handmade look of the uneven stitches.  That’s pretty much it!  A gift card holder and an ornament in one!
