    Default Idea If you make items to sell at craft shows

    Probably everyone is so busy no one will see this post. But as I finish up my wrapping it suddenly hit me! I have some gift cards and money to give and no envelops except the plain freebies from the bank which I am always worried that ppl will throw out by accident. Fabric gift card holders!!! Why doesn't anybody make those? I could use about ten right now myself. So just a thought for next year when you are deciding what to make.

    That is a good idea.

    I know there are patterns out there to sew them and probably some in the hoop designs to make them on an embroidery machine too.

    A coupe years ago I made some little wallet/card type holders for retreat favors that would make great gift card holders that people couple use as a quick carry wallet for your DL and credit card when you didn't want to carry a purse.

    Here is a quick one to stitch...if you have time. I do like your idea though for next year.

    If you have some fairly stiff wrapping paper or scrap book paper, check out Posh Paper Lady on YouTube. I made ones from the wrapping paper I used this year. They're definitely a once and done!


    Have to laugh though. A guy was on the phone at Target with a hand full of gift cards. He didn't know what to do, they didn't come with envelopes and he was calling to find out what to get or do next. "But Dear, they don't have envelopes. I've looked everywhere for the envelopes." pause, "There aren't any boxes here, what do you want me to do?"

    I use folded fabric coasters -- the ones made from charm packs...they take six to make. Quick and easy! My sister liked the idea so much, she started giving them to me!

    It's a little easier to put gift cards in the one made on the diagonal. I use fusible fleece in mine (not shown in the video below).

    I was going to make some, but I receive so many xmas cards from various charities that we use those to give gifts cards and money at xmas.

    I do have a few that were given to me, and I've kept as a pattern/ craft item to sell one day. I'm certain you will be able to figure out a creative way to give.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
