These cute handmade gift card holders were inspired from onesheepishgirl. It’s a really cute idea if you’re giving someone a gift card, because gift cards are so impersonal. I think something hand-made with that card makes it more personal I think. I’ve added another version with a flap and button. Happy Crocheting!
