I have been wanting to make these little holders for a while. I see all sorts of “fancy” gift card holders in the stores, but I am hesitant to spend few extra dollars for them, a lot of times they go straight into the trash. Hopefully these will be cute enough to be reused, they would be great for storing essential cards and cash in a small purse or for holding business cards. The tutorial and pattern can be found at the RePlayGround.
I used a variety of boxes from our recycling, mini nilla wafers, cake mix, and cheddar bunnies (my favorite one and really good snack too!) I used self adhesive Velcro dots and glued the side flaps in place instead of using the elastic cord.Then I decided to cover a box with fabric. Some spray adhesive and a fabric scrap made this spotted one. Unfortunately the printing on the box shows through the fabric, next time I’ll use darker fabric! I bet scrapbook paper would work good too! Now I just need some gift cards to fill them with!
