Quick and Easy Gift-Card Holders

Do you have gift cards to give?  Tired of simply putting them inside a Christmas card or an envelope?  If you have just 30 minutes or an hour, you can stitch up one of these sweet, quick and easy gift-card holders.  It is great packaging in which to present that special gift card.  The pattern and instructions are in the Fall 2012 eidition of Quilts and more magazine.

The pattern requires a minimal amount of fabric and heavy-duty interfacing.  The instructions are straight-forward and easy to follow.  These gift-card holders could also be reused and forwarded to other gift-card recipients, or they could be re-used to store business cards, credit cards, etc.  I chose to make mine in Christmas themed fabric, but any fabric could be used to make them great year-round gift-card holders.  Here is what the inside looks like:

I sewed all three of these in about an hour.  Don't you just love those quick-gratifying sewing projects that will bless others?
