Gift cards make amazing presents. They are definitely fun to receive, and giving a gift card can take a lot of stress out of shopping. You know that the recipient will love it, but you worry that the recipient will think it is impersonal or lazy. A handmade gift card holder can make giving a gift card more special and personal, and show someone that you put a lot of thought and effort into the gift. What’s great about these Christmas gift card holders from Just Crafty Enough, is that they also double as Christmas ornaments. Kat shares a great step by step tutorial as well as free printable templates for this cute owl and Christmas tree. The little ribbon loop at the top turns them into ornaments, and there is a pocket in the back that holds a gift card. This is another project where you could have your kids help make something meaningful. You can make a blank Christmas tree gift card holder, and then let your kids decorate it their own special way… perfect for the grandparents!
