Stocking Gift Card Holder

Here is a gift card holder that certainly says Christmas and Santa.

You can free hand draw or print out my pattern from my pattern page to use.

Start with an 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of Real Red cardstock. Trace the stocking pattern on one half of the cardstock.

Fold the cardstock in half and cut out 2 stockings at the same time.

Cut the toe and heel pieces from Garden Green cardstock and the white for the top from Whisper White cardstock. Adhere these pieces with adhesive.

Stamp Joy at Christmas from the Perfect Punches stamp set (#120516) with Gumball Green. Punch this out with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch (#119854). Adhere it to the front of the stocking.

Mark where you will make the slits to hold the gift card in place. Some gift cards are different sizes so you might want to place it on the back stock piece and mark instead of using the marks on my pattern.

Place the 2 stocking pieces together and punch four 1/4" holes along the left side of the stocking.
Measure and cut about 20" of Gumball Green 3/8" Satin Stitched ribbon (#126848).
Thread the ribbon through the holes starting at the top. Once you reach the bottom hole, turn the stocking over and thread the ribbon back through the holes going to the top of the stocking. At the top, tie a double knot and clip the ends.
Keep the ribbon straight as you thread it through the holes.

Place the gift card on the inside and write to and from on the top white of the stocking.

Sorry, Ronnel, I forgot to link to you! I'll fix that right now so that any future hoppers will see it.

  1. What a fun surprise inside the stocking!

  2. Very cute, like how you used the ribbon up the back side of the stocking.

  3. WOW! Your stocking brought back some very fond memories. I taught Special Education for 30 years (retired 7 years ago) and I made stockings with the kids every Christmas. They would sew the sides together with yarn ~ quite a fun experience !! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for sharing the deets on your cute stocking.
