Fete Gift Card Holder

Need a quick stash busting project? Need items for a craft fair? Well, then I have the perfect project for you!



These gift card holders take scrap amounts of yarn and work up so fast, you could have all of your gift card gifts covered in a day!


Plus, they can be hung on a Christmas Tree, by putting a branch through the loop closure of the gift card holder, instead of closing it.
