Naughty or Nice Gift Card Holders

We’re counting down to the zero hour with four days left until the big day.  If you have friends that have been too naughty for a cashmere sweater but nice enough for a Starbucks card, dress it up a little with these cutiepants gift card holders that can be personalized with coal for the naughties and  mod little tree for the niceies.  That’s an awkward word.

These are probably the easiest things I’ve ever forced you into making.  I made both in about 45 minutes!

First, download and print the pattern (click on the picture to download the pdf).



Next, cut your pieces out of felt.  You’ll need two rectangles for each gift card holder (one for the front and one for the back), black for the piece of coal, and green (or turquoise or purple or zebra print) for the tree.

Next, embellish your pieces as you see fit.  If you’re careful, you can embroider the lines on the coal and the face through the paper, just carefully remove all the bits when you’re done.  I embellished my tree with yellow embroidery floss and beads.

Next you just have to sew the fronts to the backs, stick a khaki-only Gap card in there, and you’re good to go, you lazy thing you!
